Default McKenzie Pass 2014

So, who's done the Pass this year? I'm planning on heading down with a friend Memorial Day weekend, so probably a bit less snow after our imminent heat wave this week. What are the conditions so far? As far as parking, does anyone know if the McKenzie River Ranger Station is open on the long weekend? Any other recommendations on friendly places to park?

Thanks for the info, but that's from last year. I'm pretty sure the conditions are nice, but I was looking to see if anyone has done it this season yet from the Eugene side, and if so, where is a good place to park that won't be considered rude (e.g. Belknap) but still safe.

Default D'oh!

ok, this is 2014, right?

ODOT says the pass will not open to motor vehicles until June 16 at the earliest - but it doesn't say if it's passable by bike at present - but Ride Oregon Ride site says that it is...
