Groomed Mirror Lake Hwy today using the Mogul Master, trail is in great shape. We are trying to catch up on some of the other trails as they are a little bumpy but we are hopefully going to run with the Mogul Master all weekend and get them in great shape. The forecast calls for rain/snow 8 out of the next 10 days which is great news. The temperatures will be on the warmer side so the lower elevation snow may be heavy but up higher it should improve. Please ride safe as we have had several accidents lately which severe consequences. The avalanche conditions are as follows:
In the wind zone at upper elevations, the avalanche danger is CONSIDERABLE today. Human triggered avalanches are probable on all steep, wind drifted slopes, particularly those facing the north half of the compass and especially those with an easterly component to their aspect. Once triggered, today's avalanches can break deep and wide, creating a very dangerous slide.
A MODERATE avalanche danger is found at mid elevations and human triggered avalanches are possible on steep, wind drifted slopes.
LOW avalanche danger is found on gentle slopes with no steep terrain above or adjacent to where you're riding.
Our Schedule this week will be
Thursday- Hwy 150 from Soapstone to Mirror Lake
Friday and Saturday- Soapstone, Hwy 35 from Soapstone to Mill Hollow, Mill Hollow, Lake Creek
Monday- Soapstone, Cold Springs, Hwy 35.
Remember to ride safe and be prepared for all conditions. Day time temperatures may be in the 40s but drop well into single digits at night so always carry your survival gear. Be Safe.
