Late Spring Conditions appearing on the system. There is still lots of snow and amazing riding out there.

Trails have not been groomed. Please consider hanging outside in the wide open spaces and stay out of the warm up shelters.

Trails are still in very good shape, some rough spots, creek fills are starting to wash out. Please cross with caution. Use caution on hills as portions of them are starting to lose snow.

Please use our staging areas to offload – Eagle River Recreation & Staging area and Groat Creek Recreation/Staging Area

Golden Triangle Letter Carson Cabin (L) to Letter O is still under construction – PLEASE USE CAUTION. It is passable, but due to equipment breakdowns, they will be there for another week.
