On November 11, the West Elk trails have about six inches of snow. We call that a good start on the base.

Last day of hunting season is November 18. There has been a lot of vehicle traffic on 819, as you can see.

Grooming operations will begin when there’s enough snow to cover the take-down fences, ruts and hazards. Generally that type of accumulation takes 2 to 3 more snow events.

Coming soon — Autumn newsletter.

Watch this blog for the start of grooming operations.

Grooming operations end for the season

After one last go-round, Aaron and Tod pulled the ginzugroomer off the trails for the season.  Mary and Marty pulled stakes and posts on Eric’s Loop. The snowpack is thin in spots. Spring snow conditions exist, please use caution if you choose that route.

Stakes, posts, and signs on all other trails will be pulled on the weekend of April 7-8.
