 We have approximately 12 -14 inches of snow at the office,
even more in some areas of camp. Paved roads were cleared,
but remain hard packed with frozen snow, making it impossible for
most vehicles to get around anywhere off of the main paved roads. 

If you must come to camp, 4WD and traction devices are required.
 Side roads in camp are covered in ice or snow and may be 
 unpassable even with 4WD and/or chains.

If you get stuck, LMCH staff can't tow you and
tow trucks may be unable to assist you depending on the conditions.

Temperatures are expected to rise, but not before a forecasted ice storm for later Tuesday. As it warms, there may be a slippery transition period. 

Any site damage found will be reported to members as soon as
conditions allow access to other areas of camp
