It might be two weeks later than rangers had hoped, but high-mountain Chinook Pass on State Route 410 is set to be open by Friday, June 9. Road crews still have avalanche control work to do before finally clearing the route, thanks to heavy spring storms. Chinook Pass crosses the Cascades and provides the eastern gateway to Mt. Rainier National Park.
