Due to diligent and tireless work by the Blaine County Road and Bridge crew and the Sawtooth National Forest road maintenance department, Warm Springs Road was opened Thursday morning. Road and Bridge recommends that the road be used minimally and only by residents past where the pavement ends on the lower Board Ranch due to still unsettled conditions. According to the department, wet slides containing large wood debris potentially causing great damage can still happen. Pictured above is part of one of three avalanches that came across Warm Springs Road within one mile of where the pavement ends. According to Road and Bridge Manager Steve Thompson, crews had to remove snow that was 40-50 feet high and as much as 200-300 feet wide in places.
