If this is any indication of snow conditions in Idaho’s mountains the water season appears to have improved.
It was only a little more than 25 years ago when the state regularly keep Highway 21 open all year. That’s because they used to regularly get avalanches like this one.
Since it is only one of the many that have com down in the last week the Transportation Department estimates it may be several weeks before they get it open again. That means its a long trip to Boise from Stanley, Challis and Salmon.
