The gates to Cascade Lakes Highway were opened at noon Monday. Deschutes County officials still caution you: watch for wet pavement and spots of ice due to snow melt-off. Five to six foot vertical walls of snow still exist on either side of the roadway. Plus, trailheads, campgrounds, and parking areas may still be covered with snow or ice. The County also says there are no parking areas available between Mt. Bachelor and Elk Lake.
