Gate at 6.1 km (at the fork) is open. Signage is still up showing construction, and closed, but gate is open. Road is very well groomed, but watch out for some slippery sections - Possibly some fresh gravel has been laid down in some spot, and thus is very soft and slushy feeling. Otherwise as of today, seems like its been recently graded. Aired down, and the whole ride was smoother than some paved roads in town, all the way to Ross Lake

Official opening was April 15th and we drove to the 45km mark to scout out access roads and trails for Mount Andrews. Excellent condition road for as far as we drove it. I"m sure it won't take long for the potholes to show up tho. They are logging right on the side of the road in 2 spots and had a closed sign up but we drove by without any issues.

[From Andrew Enns] - Went for a rip up Silver Skagit with a buddy of mine the other day who happens to work for Emil Anderson and has the key to the gate at Silver Lake. Drove almost all the way up. Silver Skagit is set to FINALLY fully re-open on April 15th. According to my buddy, who had actually gone up earlier this summer, the road was actually fully drivable by that point (August) and only had a modest amount of work still needing to be done. He figures that the province is simply slow walking the process of re-opening it. - The homeless camps along the start of Silver Skagit Road have gotten exponentially worse since I was last here six months ago. Stolen cars, garbage - Road is in excellent shape and has little to no potholes. The only potholes are ironically the section between the end - There is planned logging up Yola/Cantelon Creek FSR which will likely open up decent access to a few peaks in the area, so any peakbaggers in this group take note.
