Vista Ridge

I don't know if it is even accessible yet but just a heads up. From now into June you wont be able to get there via FS16 out of Parkdale. A section of the road is closed for logging. You'll have to get there via Lolo Pass road out of ZigZag or Lost lake road out of Dee. Hood River news didn't say how far into June the closure might go.

Thanks for the heads up!

The Red Hill SNOTEL is still showing 26" of snow at 4400' this morning, so it's probably still snowed in, at least for the next few weeks.

And I do remember a spot or two coming up 16 via Lolo Pass that are super shady and hold snow much longer than other places... so that may delay it even longer if access via Parkdale is restricted.
