Right now it is looking like 4-8" of snow are headed our way, mainly accumulating between 4pm and 3am. There will be a few flakes much earlier than that, maybe even some this morning, but they should probably be nothing to worry over until the storm really starts cooking!
This means that this is the last shot at hitting trails that have open trailheads, parking, and packed tracks to follow. As of tomorrow morning we are all going to have to open up access and blaze our own tracks all over again.
