Trail Update Nov. 25/15

Trail Update:Clearwater, L2 & L3 were groomed this a.m…..the main Clearwater trail is in good condition, some debris on the lower section of that trail…L2 & L3 was groomed, single pass only, due to the minimal snow accumulation in the canopied areas of those loops….the Night Loop to Cottonwood has been packed but certainly need more snow to improve the conditions of the rest of the trail system so the Apex side & Busk/Euphrates will remain CLOSED until more snow arrives……Clearwater main trail will be groomed with the sled/ginzu when required, and the classic tracks will be left untouched until further snow accumulation…..

Trail conditions as of Tuesday Nov. 24/15

So far today we have received 10-15cm of fresh snow at Apex and probably close to 25cm at the top of our Clearwater Trail….We will be working on the Apex side of the trails today, packing and installing pallets for some snow bridges we require on certain sections of that trail system…the plan is to work on the Clearwater Trail side within the next 36 hours. The parking lots are not accessible at this time….We are certainly hoping to open up some of the trails by this week end…ALL trails are still CLOSED until further notice…I’ll keep you posted….

Trail Conditions as of Nov. 20/15

We received 25 – 50cm of snow during the last storm we had…The Clearwater trail certainly has the best snow conditions due to the elevation…the snow in the canopied areas of our trails is scarce, and certainly in the open areas of our trails have slightly better coverage…these cold temperatures we are experience are certainly in our favor for freezing up the water areas which will allow for a fantastic base for the upcoming season…The trails will get packed once there is more snow accumulation….Let It Snow….
