Thursday afternoon we groomed from CO-OP Trail Head to just above the Lake Creek Summit and then down Strawberry River.
CO-OP trail is in excellent condition, Strawberry River is still kind of rough.
The cut off road between Strawberry River and CO-OP has also been groomed for the first time this year. It is thin in some spots with vegetation showing which is mostly Sage Brush.
We received about a 1-2 feet of new snow around Tower Mountain and Lake Creek summit. A Large Pine tree about 3 Feet in diameter fell across the Strawberry River Trail. The tree has been cut and removed from the trail.
Saturday night we groomed the South side of HWY-40. This is first time this season that we have been able to get the cat this far south. The cat went to the Marina, Indian Creek, and Trail Hollow. Lot of snow near the warming hut. The warming hut trail was NOT groomed, but we hope to get down there later this week.
From HWY-40 to the Marina turn off it is thin in some spots with vegetation showing which is mostly Sage Brush
We have some SNOW in the forecast for Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. I know it's hard to believe. Hopefully with the new snow we will be able to get into our regular schedule.
Make sure you never go alone, tell someone where you are going and when to expect you back and always wear your beacon and Helmet. Remember to go out prepared including survival and avalanche gear. Check on the avalanche conditions by going to www.avalanche.org
Be safe out there.. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
