    Status of Blue Lakes Road near Carson Pass??

    Wondering if anyone can shed light on the status of Blue Lakes just south of Tahoe. In prior years it has been a fantastic road ride when closed to cars but partially snow free. Hoping to get some intel before heading down from North Shore.

    no snow in the valley, we drove by the cut off 2 weeks ago, but we did have 100 mph winds at 8000'. I lived at lower blue for 3 years, but that was before it was paved.

    I have not been out there since May 11th. At that time you could drive up 4 miles to the next gate. Road was clear for an additional 2 miles before you hit snow (Charity valley). There’s been a ton of snow melt since then

    Have not driven Blue Lakes road but the turn off was clear, and did see a motorhome coming out when I drove by yesterday.

    A friend did it on a road bike last week. There was a bit of hike-a-bike over snow patches, but they really enjoyed it
