Martin Motor Sports brought out some of the Oiler’s gang to check out our trails – Matt Benning, Zack Kassian, Jujar Khaira, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. They were out on our trail system on Tuesday, March 6 and found some great snow and superb trails!!
Snow levels 10-18″ out there.
Snow is skinny close to town and gets deeper further north west.
North-West/East Side – Snow conditions are ok. There is good coverage throughout the north sections and the creeks have been filled. Trails are passable but caution must still be used. Grooming will start on Monday on Eagle River Casino trail to the Chickadee and the upper Manweiler to be done first. Gundy into Eagle staging on Tuesday. Wednesday we will attempt the Carson Loop. Some trail maintenance will be done tomorrow between the Eagle staging and the Athabasca River with the Sno-Cat.
South Side – Bessie, Manweiler to Bessie Junction and Summit to Cabin are groomed. Manweiler from Bessie Jct to River and Groat Trail have creeks filled and logs removed. Groat Creek crossing impassable so need to use bridge. Summit Trail to Tom Hill clear, but no cat work yet.We are expecting a decent amount of snow in the next week, according to the Weather Network.
Staging areas are open. Snow levels- 12″+, we are receiving fresh snow now. Beware: SnoCats will be out cleaning, filling and fixing trails. We have not groomed any trails as of yet–we were waiting for snow. There are some bare trails near Rolly Hills road on the Summit Trail. Caution on creek crossings as they can be bare and icy. WARNING: Logging activity present in various areas.
The Golden Triangle still requires work around Letter O to Swan Hills and around Freeman, Meekwap areas. Fox Creek reporting low snow levels around Virgina Hills. Both Fox Creek and Swan Hills reporting 2′ of snow.
