Wildgoose Basin Idaho Peak Closed

We heard about a snowslide across the Idaho Peak road so investigated. This photo is taken at the small campsite at the bottom of WildGoose Basin. You can drive easily to about 200m before this point and then it is walking. There is about 2 meters of avalanche debris for about 200m which will take a little while to melt out. Unless there is some kind of machinery used to clear the trail it will be at least 2-3 weeks before the road is open. We talked to a few people that walked to Idaho Peak and they told us that the trail itself is clear of snow and easy going and of course well worth the hike. Start early whilst the snow is still firm.
