Goose Creek Trail Dec 20 2018
First pull with the Mogul Master drag behind the Br 180 for the year. With above average temps down low and below average snow pack for the first 6 km we struggled to keep the snow moving out of the drag. After 6 km the snow slowly got easier to work with and we were able to get the drag to the Shaw cabin.
We dropped the drag there and track packed to the airport . The snow pack was very nice powder but that thick crust from last week was definitely noticeable when probing. The probe showed 155 cm of base and 55 cm on top of last weeks snow pack. The wind was blowing hard up top so expect some wind drifts.
On our way down we dropped the drag and track packed the Frosty Cabin Trail. The snow at 4 km was so hard to work on our way down we decided to drop the drag on the wide 4 km switchback.
Ladybird Trail Dec 20 2018
Trail groomed to 19 km cat turnaround. The tiller is still off the cat as we can’t risk hitting rock with it on the lower sections of trail. Probed 140 cm at the cat turnaround with 55 cm of fresh since weeks groom as well.
The staging areas for now are still at the parking lots so please don’t drive up on the trail just for safety sake.
Remember to check Avy Reports and Have a Merry Christmas
