Crews are very busy removing as much snow as they can from the Cascade Lakes Highway, at least as far as Elk Lake, so it can open for the Memorial Day Weekend.  Crews have had some challenges getting the work done: first the snow blower that the Deschutes County crews was using broke down. Then the ODOT snow blower they contracted broke. Our news partner, News Channel 21 reports that there is about a six foot snowpack on the road way; but crews are scraping and plowing and it looks like the road to Elk Lake will open on Friday.
