Grooming Schedule 02-15 to 02-21
Last week may have been the last time the groomer will got out. We hope to be able to groom on friday, but if all the snow melts on our access road we will have to stop all grooming operations.
02/20 Friday: CO-OP, Lake Creek to FS Boundary, Strawberry River.
We are no longer be grooming Clyde Creek, Mud Creek, Strawberry Marina, Indian Creek and Trail Hollow. We do not have enough snow to get from the CO-OP Trail head across Hwy 40 or snow in the flat towards the marina. We will not be grooming that section until we get more snow (if we ever do).
As of now the groomer will only be going out on Friday night. We will be grooming CO-OP Strawberry River and Lake Creek down to the Forest Service Boundary. The snow is melting quickly on the lake creek road. You can no longer use the lake creek trail head. You have to drive about a mile past the trail head to unload. There are 4 cones, Stop sign and no wheeled vehicles over 800 LBS sign on the lake creek road 1 mile from the trail head. Please no vehicle beyond his point.
Pray for snow.
Make sure your sleds are properly equipped for the season, REGISTERED and decals are displayed properly. Be sure to put a copy of the registration somewhere on your sled while you operate and transport them.
