Ladybird Trail Feb 27th 2019
With reports of the Cayuse trail being in rough shape (and yes it was)the 275 made its way up to 20 km on West Ladybird. Taking some extra fuel along for the trip, the 19 km Norns Creek trail was also groomed to the cat turnaround.
Looking at the condition of Cayuse trail it would seem we are getting much more traffic in that direction when comparing to previous years. Although we can't groom it every week we will be paying more attention to it. That being said if you notice it getting bad just let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or on our face book page so we can plan on getting it fixed up.
Goose Creek Trail Feb 28th 2019
With close to 30 cm on the groomed trail Saturday we were not sure if pulling the drag was the best idea or if we should have put the compactor on. As it turned out the drag was a good choice as sled traffic spread out on the trail and made for an easy pull to the airport.
Thanks to all of you as you make the trails stand up much longer by getting the air out of the snow before the drag gets to it.
We probed 35 cm since last weeks groom with the base holding at 235 cm. On the trail today when turning around up top there was 12 cm of fresh and snowing lightly.
Frosty trail was also track packed and wood hauled to both cabins as well.
Tip of the week. Get out and enjoy the best snow of the year.
Be sure to check the Avy report and the weather forecast before every ride.
Have a great weekend.

Goose Creek Trail Feb 21st 2019
After last weeks extra couple trips with the cat to get supplies up for our family day event the trail was still in pretty good shape. We did pull the drag up to the airport and were pleased with another 20 cm on the trail since our last groom. We probed a base of 230 cm and snowing lightly during our grooming trip.
The snow is still excellent after the first couple km up the trail as the temps have stayed on our side.
Frosty trail was tracked packed and we dropped off wood at both cabins.
Thanks to everyone who helped out at our fun day event and of course those of you that showed up to make it a success.
Thank you Joe Shaw for donating the 50/50 back to the club.
Check out the Avy report and have a great weekend.
Ladybird Trail Feb 13th 2019
Ladybird Trail groomed to 19 km cat turnaround. Probed 205 cm with 30 cm of fresh powder.
Goose Creek Trail Feb 13th 2019
With the expectation of some good snow depths we opted to switch out the drag and put on the compactor bar. Turned out to be a good choice as we had 42 cm of fresh since our last groom up at the airport and a base of 210 cm.
The trail was in good shape but with the family day event this weekend we will be doing what we can to pack any new snow before Saturday.
Be sure to check avy conditions as anytime we get this much new snow things change quickly. Even if your just sticking to the trail lots of good info on the their website.
Hope to see you up at the cabin on Saturday, snow or sun last I heard sledding is a winter sport. The cabin will be warm and dry.
