I tried to get to Bowman valley about a month ago but the road was impassable due to deep snow. Have a slightly lifted Jeep, so a little snow is fine, but we couldn't even get close.

Anybody been up there recently? I'd like to go this weekend if the road is passable.

Sorry, can't say.

If you don't mind me temporarily hijacking your thread... What are the Emeralds conditions right now? When you drove past a month ago I'm assuming Bowman Lake Rd was fine for the <2 miles to the Emeralds bridge. Do you think the trails are snow-free getting up to crags?

I had a buddy get stuck up there for 2 days about 2 weeks ago due to the snow being rutted out so deep. wsperry
