    Ok, this is a long shot (pun intended) I figure the place is buried under 3ft of snow but im wondering if locals have been driving up there and packing the road down, is it driveable at least up past the 7 mile no shooting zone?

    There's another pit up Fish Creek road,which is about 10 miles down 224 from memaloose road.
    I don't know know the status of that-havent been up there since early November.

    There's always 36 pit,but it's nothing fabulous-mainly good for function testing and kindling a burning hatred for your fellow man (lots of trash:))

    It was closed about six weeks ago when I was up there last. I've been using an area a little bit further up the highway.

    The Memaloose road bridge has been closed since the fire. It's supposed to open eventually, no timeline that I'm aware of.

    FYI, just talked with the Ranger Station and they figure it will be closed for another year.

    Bummer! I guess that's better than telling us 'Any Day Now'!

    I'm hoping to find a good spot along the NF45, close to where we will meet for the cleanup on June 17th, where we can do a group shoot for the 'After Party' after the cleanup. Any locations close to where the blacktop ends?
