Attention snowshoers!

SHARE THE TRAILS!

Today there was a lovely ski track with 4 inches of powder on the trails.

West Elk trail 12-26-15

Unfortunately a group of snowshoers came through and obliterated the track and the powder. Totally unacceptable.

Snowshoers — please, please, please! Share the trails! If you see a ski track please avoid snowshoeing on top of the ski tracks.

All of our volunteer groomers and most of our trail users are cross country skiers. Our groomers make the trails wide enough for both snowshoers and skiers. Our trails have plenty of room for a skier track and a snowshoe lane AS LONG AS EVERYONE SHARES THE TRAILS!!!

GROOMER’S REPORT

Another 4 to 6 inches of new snow fell overnight. Gorgeous sunny day with frigid temps stubbornly stuck in the single digits. Tod Tibbetts snowmobile packed all the trails. Conditions are excellent with a 40 to 45 inch base — powder and packed powder.

Enjoy!

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. Thank you!
