West Elk Chief Groomer 12-24-15

Chief Groomer Tod Tibbetts says the new Bearcat grooming sled saves time and is easy to operate.


The Bearcat grooming sled has arrived and the ginzugroomer is on the trail.

Does that mean the new Bearcat is paid for? Oh hell, no. It means we are on the payment plan. So keep those donations coming in.

About 10 inches of new snow fell since last weekend, with some drifting. The trail base is about 30 inches in the open and 36 inches in the trees. Temps today hovered in the low teens with a chilly breeze that developed in the afternoon.

Volunteer groomers Tod Tibbetts and Bruce Kime worked on the trails today. Hwy 819 and Kay’s Loop have been groomed with the ginzugroomer. Check it out. Sweet!

If you’re in the mood for some fresh powder there’s still plenty to enjoy.

Eric’s Loop is a work-in-progress. The trail has been packed with snowmobiles however many dips and ruts remain. All down trees have been removed but hazards may still exist on the trail. As always use caution.

Caution_Grooming signVolunteers will be conducting grooming operations on all trails through the Christmas holiday weekend.  At any given time there may be up to 2 snowmobiles on the trails along with the ginzugroomer. The snow is soft and deep off the edges and it’s easy for our equipment to get stuck.

Stop. Look. Listen.

Please yield to snowmobiles, especially the Bearcat when it’s pulling the ginzugroomer. Step to the side, off the trail and let the equipment pass by. If you are in a group, please have everyone step to the same side and not both sides so there’s enough room for the equipment to pass by safely.
