As of 5/11 access to Cascade Pass invovles 2 miles of walking on Cascade River Road, with the last half mile before parking lot complelety snow covered. Road is gated at MP 21. Cascade Pass is completely snow covered. Be aware of avalance hazard, in the form of wet slides, cornice collapse, and glide avalanches. Lots of natural activity off of Johannesburg and the steeps approaching the pass from the parking lot. Travel in the Cascade Pass area at this time is completely on snow, snowshoes or skis recommended on warmer days as snow is very saturated and soft.
