Mt Loop, Mallardy Ridge

Post by n16ht5 » Sat Mar 15, 2014 4:34 pm

Headed up to Mt Loop Highway hoping to snowmobile and hike to the ice caves.. when we got to the gate there was no snow :confused:.
So we went to Deer Creek, seeing that there was about 8" and unloaded. Got around the corner and the snow disappeared, with nothing in sight further up :confused: :confused: .

So we then drove back to Mallardy and made it 2/3 the way up before hitting snow. finally! Unloaded and rode along the ridge for some views and a Subway sandwich. Got a bit of blue sky in before it clouded up. Snow level is about 2800ft for any solid accumulation, and its like wet cement. Glad to finally get out to the mountains, we were getting stir crazy from all the rain.
