i am hoping to start the great divive mtb route (gdmbr) on june 10th, , riding south from roosville MT to antelope wells NM. bikepacking with an expectation of doing about 100miles a day. this year has had heavier than average snowfall, will most or a significant portion of the trailS be closed/ snow covered? thanks Greg

Your start is 4 days before the Grand Depart of the 2014 Tour Divide race from Banff. Even at 100 miles/day, you will probably be overtaken after 7 days by the frontrunners. On http://www.bikepacking.net/forum/index.php?topic=6102.msg62697#new you'll find the latest info about snowpack. I saw a cryptical post recently from Matthew Lee himself. He has eyes and ears everywhere on the GD. Follow that link!
