Grooming Report for 12/6/2013

We are awaiting additional snow at the trailhead before beginning grooming. Currently there is very little snow at the trailhead with 19" at Bug Lake and 14" at Temple Fork. Be aware that the U.S. Forest Service made changes to the trail at Saddle Creek toward Hells Hollow. The trail was moved from the bottom of the canyon up along the West side. The snowmobile trail will follow the new road and has been marked. Also minor changes were made to the summer trail near the Elk Valley Guard Station, however it is anticipated that the snowmobile trail will follow the same route it has in the past.


The weekly grooming schedule will be as follows:

Friday: Bug Lake Loop

Saturday: Hells Hollow Loop

Sunday: Cottonwood Trail

Tuesday: Snow cat maintenance

Wednesday: Redspur / clean up

The schedule is subject to change based upon weather and trail conditions:
