TRAIL CONDITIONS UPDATE
January 24th, 2019
**CLEARWATER GROOMING UPDATE**
As some have noticed, Clearwater has not been groomed during the last two shifts, more than is typically acceptable.
Management and grooming staff adjust trail maintenance priorities based on weather (both current and forecast) as well as on frequency of member use and program needs. The decision to omit grooming Clearwater on Jan 22 was based on program needs and mid week rates of member visits to Clearwater.
Last night however, Clearwater was not groomed again in favour of performing trail renovation work on Busk/Euphrates, prior to the forecast of a few days of warm and sunny weather. This preemptive ‘reno’ work allows for more efficient grooming at the low elevations during the warm periods. In the case of Clearwater Trails, due to the elevation and cooler temperatures, can still be groomed back to an acceptable standard without too much effort after two days of new snow.
On that note, Clearwater will be groomed this evening
Going forward management and grooming staff will aim to ensure that a particular reach of trail is not left un-groomed for more than one shift.
