Finding some snow on Fire Service roads in western wa?

I tried up 410 where I used to go.

FS 74, gated
FS 72 gated with a dumb ass sign about protecting the winter grazing lands for elk.
Shit, elk aren't in trouble, my field is constantly destroyed by them...
FS 70 open to the snow park lot, but wheeled vehicles are not allowed past the turn around.

I used to have alot of fun back in there.
Dang, more rules, more gates, less freedom, less fun.

Where can I go to get into some decent snow?

I live in south king county.


ideas?

Anywhere in Darrington for the most part is open. FS 17, 18, 22 are fun. A bit of a haul for you though.

Outside of that, I beleive some of the Cle Elum roads are open as well. Denny/Tinkham as mention is a popular spot and if you are near Granite Falls, 41 is open as well (Green Mountain) and is another popular spot for Jeepers and snow.

Foss River?

Ran Denny creek three weeks ago and it was still pretty deep though a bit sloggy. Foss River up near Skykomish was fun, the road gets a bit tight and between the dropoffs, switchbacks and deep snow it had a pretty high pucker factor.

I haven't been to Evans creek in a while but I'd bet there is some snow up there.
