I am sorry I have not kept this current. The power has not been on much of the time. We have been on the groomer just trying to keep our heads above the snow. After 12 hours you just want to go to bed. The stuff keeps falling. The powder is the best. We have not been able to get way out but the better riders are having a blast. Went to the dam the other day and had to track pack so Hoover could get out ( and the next day also) and the snow was coming to the windshield, backed up a lot to get there. We are trying to groom but the snow won’t set up. Very soft behind the cat. Six foot of powder just will not stay where we want it to stay. All the trail heads are groomed but Big Creek and 4 Trees are narrow so be careful. We  are trying to  get out farther but  snow keeps coming and we are having a hard time keeping the main  trails open. As the weather lets up we will have everthing open even if we double shift the cat. It is taking 50 gallons of fuel for a 6 hour shift in this powder just to keep our heads over the top.. If you want to come  up we are keeping the main trail open so the hole family can come and enjoy the day so come on up!!!!!

As the conditions improve we move to the outer trails so everyone can see the beauty that is out there

We got between 4-12 inches last weekend. Just enough to make things a white again. We are still grooming and the trails are in great shape where there is snow. The forebay loop has a lot of dirt showing, don’t go there. The FS has named that trail Grizzly Loop,  now we have two grizzly loops NOT GOOD in case of a accident. Will try to fix the problem but the maps are printed, maybe they will let us proof read them next time. There is still open ditches and holes everywhere so don’t go where you can’t see a safe path. The weather is great and no fog. Come see the sun and have fun  JWG
