Next meeting will be at the Summit Cabin at 7:00pm on Wednesday January 16, 2019
We have received fresh snow this past weekend giving us snow levels from 12″-18″ on the trails. Snowcats are out working on the trails and will also be grooming this week. Lots of untouched areas out there and we are excited to begin the season. Don’t forget to purchase an ASA Trail Pass or Day Pass if you are going out on the trails, it helps to support our trail maintenance and grooming programs. By purchasing a sled raffle ticket, you also help support those programs.
Both of the staging areas are now open. Eagle was cleaned today and Groat to be cleaned either tomorrow or early next week. A bit more of trail cleaning needed and then we will be ready. Bring on the snow mother nature!! Looks like we might get a bit the upcoming week. Currently about 8-12″ of snow on the trails.

Eagle River Staging Area is OPEN. We received 4-6” of fresh snow on the trails! Beware of water hazards as well trails are not groomed, therefore rough spots and other natural hazards are present. Be cautious. About 8-12” on the trails in varying areas; deeper the further north you go.
RIDING RECOMMENDATION: Riding is not recommended. If you are riding, please use the WHOLE trail, not just the center area.
TRAIL CLEANING: Many of the trails are cleaned (most of the south side and parts of the north); however, we are still working to remove cut trees by dozer. If you are out, please use caution.
CONDITION OF TRAILS: Trails are in poor condition due to lack of snow (about 6″ on average) and the trails are very rough.
