A Tushar Question

Postby TyeDyeTwins » Wed May 05, 2010 3:18 am

We read in the Tyson Bradely book that the road up to Puffer Lake is plowed and paved. However we heard from a local that the road is not plowed, making the climb over 5 miles to Puffer Lake. Can you drive all the way to Puffer Lake or was I just talking to some local who was trying to protect his powder stash?

Unfortunately, I haven't been there in several years.

The road used to be plowed this time of year, but that's when Elk Meadows Ski Resort was functional. If the local says it isn't open anymore, I would suspect that he is telling the truth.

Call the usfs station in Beaver UT. They used to be pretty responsive.
