If your holiday plans involve going over the North Cascades Highway - you can't get there from here.

The North Cascades Highway section of SR 20 is officially closed until next spring.

WSDOT crews have been monitoring the road and nearby avalanche chutes above the highway since Friday, November 18, when they temporarily closed the road. After receiving additional snow this weekend, they determined more avalanche chutes were full and unstable, forcing them to close the road today, November 21.
