While there has been some melting this month, there’s still a lot of snow in Utah’s mountain passes. As a result, several scenic drives and popular campgrounds won’t be open in time for Memorial Day weekend. KPCW’s Leslie Thatcher has more.
UDOT spokesman John Gleason says they expect to have the southern and eastern facing seasonal roads open for the weekend including Wolf Creek Pass and East Canyon. It’s reported that Wolf Creek still has about 3 feet of snow on it.
