Trail packing begins December 8

Aaron Mattix and Tod Tibbetts met up on the West Elk trails for a little snowshoeing on Saturday afternoon. With 2 feet of new snow they decided it’s time to start packing the trails with the snowmobiles. Trail packing will begin Saturday, December 8.

In the meantime, volunteers are busy finishing up maintenance on the snowmobiles and trailers.

The trails need at least 2 feet of snow before we can take the snowmobiles up to begin packing. Takedown fences, rocks, logs, and other natural objects on the trails must be covered completely for the safety of our groomers.

Hwy 819 and Kay’s Loop will be packed first, and then East Cutoff and Zeus’s Cutoff. Next they will pack Eric’s Loop. During the next couple weeks wildlife is still on the move in the back country along Eric’s Loop.

Before they can run the ginzugroomer, sections of Kay’s and Eric’s Loops will need shoveling. We will need volunteers for a couple trail work sessions. Watch this blog for details. To volunteer call Tod Tibbetts at 970-876-2196, or email: wemuc@siltnet.net
