Reference the gate at the start of AAR. I believe it was locked so that DOT would go back there with heavy equipment and spread the 2 concrete barriers apart so that the Mat-Su Ski Club groomer would be able to fit thru the gap. And also so skiers coming fast, down the hill across the bridge would not have to "thread the needle". I have not been able to confirm with DOT that the barriers have been moved. If anyone knows what the situation is like at the bridge please call me at 745-4190. Thanks

The road is still driveable to the bridge, but is now locked at the Hatcher Pass road. They just close it arbitrarily early now - denying easier access to Snowbird and Lane

Very unfortunate Archangel is locked. We used to ski back there well into mid-November some years. DOT protecting us from ourselves - or protecting the least common denominator. Very sad
