Waking up Cayuse Pass from its winter snooze
Early last week, maintenance crews revved up more than 26 tons of heavy duty machinery and began their annual quest to open Cayuse Pass on Mount Rainier by Memorial Day weekend. The clearing process is no simple task and can take up to as six weeks to make the trek up to SR 123 Cayuse Pass. Every year, we close Cayuse and Chinook passes due to high avalanche risk and hazardous conditions. Crews from the east side of the state will begin clearing SR 410 Chinook Pass in mid-April.
