Ladybird Trail Dec 29th 2019
With snow in the forecast the 275 was up to finish road building work on the Norns Creek trail. At the 19km cat turn it was snowing heavily and we probed 154cm. Hoping to get a good amount of snow so we could start running our tiller on the next groom.
Goose Creek Trail Dec 28th 2019
With heavy traffic over the past few days we decided to get on Goose Trail last night. The section of trail between the Shaw cabin and the airport should stand up better now as we were finally able to get the drag to the airport. Frosty trail got some cleanup and propane dropped off at the cabin while Shaw Cabin had some wood dopped off. We probed 165 cm up top with 5cm since our last groom. Please use caution on the trail as early season conditions are still with us. Very icy conditions for the first 2km of the trail.
Goose Creek Trail December 23, 2019
With a drop in temperatures and repairs to the 180 complete, we decided to try and get on Goose Creek to get the trail into shape for the holiday break. We had expected the trail to be pretty beat up with the heavy rains at the lower elevations and it was. We managed to pull the mogul master drag up to the 14 Km hill behind the cabin but were unable to pull the hill. All went well but was a very slow trip due to the frozen conditions. We probed 178 cm up at the top of the airport with 27 cm of fresh snow on top of the cat trail since Fridays groom. Still pretty good conditions for unloading at the parking lot but use caution as the snow is very thin for the first couple kilometres.
Our new shop being put to good use, with repairs to one of our plow trucks and the Br 180 snowcat. Thanks to all our supporters and volunteers who helped with this. Still more work to do but super nice to be dry when its pouring outside.
