From the Olympic National Park news release:

A community effort to raise $75,000 to help fund daily winter access to Hurricane Ridge reached its target on Monday, giving the go-ahead for Olympic National Park staff to begin recruiting the additional employees and supplies needed to maintain daily access this winter.

This winter (2010-11) is now set to be the first year of a two-to-three year trial period to provide daily winter access to Hurricane Ridge, while measuring the regional economic and tourism benefits of the new schedule.

This means that instead of the current three-day-per-week access (on the weekends), Hurricane Ridge Road will be open daily in the winter, allowing greater access to winter recreation activities. The full news release can be found here.
