Ladybird Trail Feb 25th 2021
Trail groomed to 19 km cat turnaround on Norns Creek.
With 30 cm of fresh since the last groom and big wind the trail from 17 km to 19km was pretty much none existent.
Probed 260 cm of base and 30 cm since last groom.
Goose Creek trail Feb 26th 2021
Trail groomed to the airport but had to drop drag at the Shaw Cabin. Frosty Trail groomed to the cabin with the drag and some perseverance.
Probed 275 cm of base and 30 cm of fresh. Some areas seemed to have up to 40cm of fresh.
Tip of the week- First trucks in parking lots can help everyone figure out a good parking pattern. Trucks with decks should park with front end facing banks and leave the center of the lot for trailers if possible. Leave only as much room between as nessasary to allow for as many as we can get into the lots. Thanks
Be sure to check the avy report and have a great weekend.
Goose Creek Trail February 23, 2021
Goose Creek Trail groomed to the airport with the drag and the Frosty Trail track packed. Firewood and propane dropped off at the Frosty cabin.
At the top we probed 265 cm of base and 20 cm of fresh snow in the past few days. Good snow at around the 6 km mark. There has been some good wind up top so play it safe on the steeper areas that may be wind loaded.
Spring like conditions for the first 3 km of trail so use caution as there are some very icy sections and areas that are starting to thin out.
Tip of the week -be sure to run scratchers when there is no powder even if your sled isn’t getting hot as it will save your track slides.

Tip of the week- first tracks on a trail with a few cm of fresh snow on it.
The first sled tracks after a snowfall can play a key role in how well a trail holds up. The tendency of most snowmobile riders is to follow a trail set by the sleds ahead of them. Packing all of your lane will help set the tone for others to move off that single trail that starts a whooped out section.
Have a good weekend and be sure to check the avy report before heading into the back country.
