Great to see all the folks out on the trails over the holiday season. We have not received any new snow this past week, however the snow we do have is holding up well. We have between 6-12″ on the trails. The trails that are in the deep tree sections have lower levels. Both of the Staging areas are open and we are hoping to have them graded for the weekend.  

Trail Maintenance/Filling:  South Trails: All trails have been filled except the trail from south of the Summit Cabin (Summit Trail) to Tom Hill Tower area. North: All the trails have been filled except the Chickadee Burner to the Athabasca and the Golden Triangle section north of the Carson Cabin-Letter L to O. The Golden Triangle Section to Gundy Cabin was mowed, therefore has lower snow levels.

Grooming:  The South Side has been groomed a second time from Summit Cabin to Groat, Goodwin and Groat /Goodwin Connector. Manweiler and Bessie Trails are still in great shape from the 1st groom. North Side – All trails on North and East of Eagle River Staging have been groomed with the exception of the Golden Triangle Section from Carson Cabin Letter L to O    

Hazards:  Please be cautious of lower snow levels on the trails due to ruts; they can be rough riding.  Large water bodies are not frozen.  Please be cautious for signage and re-routing on the trails in the north and the south this coming winter.  We have made many changes with flattening some hills, widening, mowing and mulching various trails.  Multiple re-routing/bypasses have been completed; please watch for signs or ribboning.  Please stay on trails as there has been recent logging in a few areas and that means stumps and bumps.
