Grooming Report 1/24/14

Grooming Report 1/24/14
As of 1/24/14 there is no new snow at the trailhead with 31" at Bug Lake and 31" at Temple Fork. The snowcat groomed the Bug Lake Loop on 1/19/14. The switchback area is tracked only. The snowcat was unable to cut the trail and groom at the same time due to snow conditions. Future grooming runs are dependent on snow conditions.
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:
