    The trail and the shelter are just outside the Wilderness. I rode it years ago, but I would only recommend biking if you enjoy the challenge. It won't save you much time (if any) over walking.

    The snow was wet when it fell yesterday, but it's dried out with the colder temps so you can expect mostly powder on Saturday.

    Thread drift: The problem is widespread. The Wonalancet parking lot is regularly overfilled, with a long line of cars parked along the road (to the dismay of the neighbors).

    The pass is good for 12 months from when it is issued. They cut out a notch for the month so it's visible from either side.

    It appears that you take a day pass at the TH and write in your pass number in the designated box. One part goes in the iron ranger and the other on your dash, just as if you were paying cash.
