A ten-mile section of the highway in Lassen Volcanic National Park, CA between Loomis Plaza and Devastated Area is now open to vehicles.
The highway opened to vehicles between Loomis Plaza and Devastated Area (10 miles). There is 4-6 feet of snow at the Devastated Area. Road clearing began today at the Southwest entrance! The snow is much deeper (~12 feet) than it is at Manzanita Lake to Devastated Area, so more machines are needed and the process of clearing will take much longer. Please stay clear of equipment. Operators may not be able to see you.
There are approximately 4 to 6 feet of snow at the Devastated Area. Be sure to bring snowshoes or skis if you’d like to adventure beyond the closure point.
The park highway (89) is closed for snow clearing operations at the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center in the Southwest Area and at Devastated Area (10 miles beyond the Loomis Plaza) in the Northwest Area.
