Snow conditions are Better now than we have had in the past few years. The snow is not very deep at the bottom but gains depth as you head up the mountain. We did a run January 19. There is still some good riding to be had. The trail is holding up great so far, we are hoping for more snow this week. There continues to be a lot of use. Be cautious and watch for rocks and fallen trees, just about every week this season we have had to remove some more trees that have fallen across the trail. We have a great team of volunteers who are doing the grooming, if you see them out say hi and thanks for the great job they do. There are still some rocks showing at the side’s of the trail on the top of the ridge. As the snow conditions stay good we will groom weekly. We hope you enjoy your time in the back country. As you find yourself venturing out, please, please be careful and wear all your protective gear. That includes a beacon. If you have any questions or comments for us, feel free to drop us a line.
