Trail Report

Still snowing, another few inches at lower elevations and probably added another 6" up high in the last 24 hours with snow still falling. Last 2 days put down close to 18" new above 9,500 ft. Some great Colorado weather, keep it coming! The most recent two inches is beautiful dendrite crystals as air temps were cooling up high. Video from Gravel at 10:15pm, tracks from today no longer exsist. Time lapse from last night is almost the same, just a different type of snow falling. Snow is getting very deep in areas no has tracked out yet. Roller balls falling from trees were all too common tonight, although didn't move the small slide just north of Stillwater Pass. Sliced the way through Kauffman Creek tonight. Cut or pushed off about 2 dozen trees down on the trail, or hanging/ leaning into the trail, and buried many more. There is a logging project going out of Kauffman Creek Kiosk this winter, just to the west of intersection "V," we groomed to their plowed road. The plowing ends about 1/2 mile from Hwy 125. Some very deep spots south of intersection "U" where it's super shady right now, 13 gallons of deisel/hour deep. The one thin area is by Illinois Pass trailhead, amazing amount of willows showing compared to everywhere else on the mountain. Groomed all of Stillwater Pass rd to Idleglen. Rocky Mtn Nat'l Park controls the opening of the town trail and as of Monday 12/9 were waiting for more snow to open. We'll let you know any updates here. You can be first tracks tommorrow in some nice snow, get up here and ride it! Groomer phone: (970) 531-8872 12/9/19
