Trail Report

Temps closer to mid-May with highs of near 60° the last 4 days and little to no freeze at night has greatly effected our snowpack, especially at lower elevations. A balmy 37° at midnight tonight. Wish there was better news, but that's the reality. The trail down from "A" to the Forest border (picture) is turning into puddles with rocks and dirt showing through. We won't be down past "A" again this season without significant cold. Riding from Idleglen is better with full trail coverage leaving on Kawuneeche and, as of tonight, only one puddle just out of the parking lot on Stillwater. Shelf roads are falling apart under the snowcat as they melt from below. This slumping also indicates a very unstable snowpack creating dangerous conditions. Continued high temps in the forecast will only increase this danger. Creeks are opening up and creeks crossings are beginning to fall, so know where you cross. Season coming to a close FAST, get it this week! Groomer phone: 970 531-8872 3/17/17
