Hwy 242, The McKenzie Pass highway, remains closed to vehicles between the East and West snow gates. Plowing has opened a single passage to 1.5 miles beyond Windy Point on the east side. Bicyclists and hikers may use this path but watch for winter debris, possibly icy sections, fresh snow(!) and ODOT workers in the area.

The Bear Valley, Jack Lake and Santiam Pass trail heads are open to vehicles with limited parking. Expect full snow cover on all trails around 5000ft.
