    Thanks, Brad. Howie should be the best source of accurate information on this road.

    Yes, that is the "winter cut-off" and I believe others are correct in that it has not been used for many years. We used it on a ski descent during one of my shift changes. I'm not sure there is much of a need for it anymore as the snowcats are much better at negotiating the large drifts on the "cut-off" sections then in the past.

    I also believe the cut off does cross the Wilderness area, but that technically should not be an issue as existing in-holdings are typically grandfathered. Regardless, if it doesn't need to be used anymore it is easy to abide by the wilderness rules.

    Before your picture, I had no idea there was this winter cut-off.
