Jan 11th,Grooming on Goose Creek this week was more like logging on Goose. We had so many trees to clear from the trail we lost track. After hearing about lots of fresh and several trees we opted to leave the drag and track pack. The trip went well but was a long one due to the tree removal. Thanks to everyone that helped out by making trails around some of the trees and clearing what they could.
We filled in more of the open ditches up around 9 km, packed Frosty trail and the airport trail. The trail was in good shape due to everyone spreading out and using all of it, thanks for that.
We probed 60 cm of fresh on the trail since last weeks groom and a base of 204 cm up at the airport. The snow has dried out very nice from 5 km to the top.
Jan 12th, Ladybird was groomed to the 19 km turnaround with the tiller. Many trees were also down and had to be removed on that trail.
At the cat turnaround there was 55 cm of fresh and 165 cm of base.
Please check out the avalanche center as conditions are very high. Have a great weekend and stay safe.
Jan 4th 2018 Goose Creek trail groomed with the drag to the airport all went well. We decided to take out two more trees that looked to be ready to come down with any more snow on them.
Snow pack warmed up above about 6000 ft but still on the trees below the cabin. Settled powder up top and a snow pack of 175 cm.
Jan 5th 2018 Ladybird, no snow report for Ladybird as the cat is scheduled to head out this evening. Have a good weekend.
Dec 30th 2017 Ladybird trail was groomed to the cat turnaround at 19 km. Two trees removed from trail and 43 cm of fresh since last groom.
Jan 2nd 2018 The Br-180 went up to track pack new snow on the Cooley Lake trail and pulled the drag up to 9 km on Goose Creek. Two trees also had to be removed from the trail.
The 180 had been having an intermittent charging issue so the alternator had to be replaced. Although we only have one test trip since the replacement we are keeping our fingers crossed the problem is solved.
