    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.
