Complex 3

 Snow conditions are not very good. We did take the groomer up Saturday Febuary 15 and made a run to take out some of the woops. The snow is not very deep even up on top but there is still some good riding to be had. This trail is experiencing heavier than usual use. Be cautious and watch for rocks and fallen trees. We had a great team of volunteers go up and clean the trail of fallen trees and there were several very large ones across the trail. They did an excellent job. and they all worked hard to give you a good riding area. 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 for us, feel free to drop us a line. 

Update March 6 Unless we get a large storm with heavy snow fall. The chalk Creek trail will not be groomed again this season. The lower part of the trail from the gas plant has melted off.

Grooming update 3/4/2014

Grooming update for Mirror Lake /Mill Hollow 3/4/2014

As of March 4, 2014, we had received about two feet of new snow on top and are hoping the weather gives us more new snow as the week goes on.  On top there is about five to six feet of snow with fair amounts at the trailheads.  The trails are in good shape the warm weather is starting to be a challenge for us to keep the lower levels smooth.  Monday Soapstone, Cold Springs, and Wolf Creek to the Nobblets parking area were groomed. Thursday Mirror Lake highway to Mirror Lake is scheduled to be groomed. Friday the Mill Hollow to Lake Creek trailhead will be groomed.  We should be following our schedule for the weekend.  Watch out for danger while riding. The Avalanche danger is still High. Make sure you are wearing a beacon. Ride safe and enjoy the snow.

You can find a copy of our grooming schedule on this website at http://www.snowut.com that you can print out. Remember that all our runs are done at night but we may be on the trail at any time so ride under control at all times.

 

 Remember to go out prepared including survival and avalanche gear. Check on the avalanche conditions by going to www.avalanche.org  Ride safe and we will see you on the trails!!!

Grooming Report for 02/10/14

What a great series of storms! I would say we double or even tripled our snowpack at the trail heads! These storms were relatively warm so the snow was not the "greatest snow on earth" but we need the water and the snow will provide a good base finally. Along with the heavy snow were high winds. This combination has made our avalanche conditions very dangerous and unfortunately we had a snowmobile avalanche fatality. Our thoughts and prayers go out the family.

 

BOTTOM LINE:
 

It's dangerous out there and this is the real deal. Avalanches are breaking deep and wide, taking out the entire seasons snowpack. If you're getting on the snow today, please take a moment and think about the consequences of triggering an avalanche and the possibility of not coming home to your family.

At all elevations, the avalanche danger is HIGH today and borders on EXTREME in some locations. Both human triggered and natural avalanches are very likely on all steep, wind drifted slopes. The danger is most pronounced on slopes facing the north half of the compass, particularly those with an easterly component to their aspect. Once triggered avalanches have the possibility to break deep and wide, creating a dangerous and possibly unsurvivable slide.

 

We have been out grooming but with the new snow, you probably won't be able to tell. We will get out this week and get the trails packed down. The schedule will be as follows:

 

Monday- Soapstone, Cold Springs, Hwy 35

Thursday- Mirror Lake

Friday and Saturday- Soapstone, Mill Hollow, Lake Creek

 

Have a great week and ride safe!
