Looks like the North Cascades Highway will not be opening any time soon. There is 10 feet of snow near Washington Pass and 60 feet in the avalanche zones below Liberty Bell. They anticipate this to be the latest opening in 2-3 decades. They are thinking they won't be able to start clearing until mid-April, which would likely mean a mid-May opening.

This from WSDOT:

Clearing the North Cascades Highway starts April 11
Deep snow and avalanche danger forces latest start in 20 years
The work is expected to take as many as six weeks to complete this year.

Last year, crews started clearing snow on March 22 and only four weeks later Tootsie Clark was serving her famous cinnamon rolls to the first drivers at the gate when it opened April 16.

Also here are some pretty pictures: http://www.flickr.com/photos/wsdot/sets ... 170712679/

Liberty Bell Group looks pretty amazing. I wonder if this means that some of those couloirs will hold snow longer this year.

SR 20 North Cascades Highway reopens Wednesday at noon

"Wednesday’s noon reopening of the North Cascades Highway marks the second latest since the highway opened 39 years ago. The latest ever was June 14, 1974, and the next latest, surpassed by this year, was in 1976 when it reopened on May 21."
