Goose Creek Trail Jan 9th 2019
With new snow on the trail and warm temps forecasted we decided to hit Goose early before the snow became to hard to work with the mogul master drag.
We managed to get the drag to the 14 km hill past the Shaw cabin but the fresh was just to much for the 180 to make the steep pull. After dropping the drag we headed to the top to straighten the trail out with the blade and track pack the fresh snow.
We probed 195 cm of base and 35 cm since last groom. The snow was great up top but warmer temps were definitely moving in as we headed for home. Frosty trail was also cleaned up and firewood dropped at the Shaw Cabin.
Ladybird Trail Jan 10th 2019
Ladybird groomed to the 19 km marker with the tiller working hard to spin the heavy wet snow down low. The snow was not great till about the 16 km marker. After that it was definitely deep. We probed 40 cm of fresh at cat turn and 185 of base. Several trees were removed and more signage put up on the trail.
Please use caution as warm temps usually mean the mountains will wake up. . Check the Avy report every ride of course lots to learn just by looking over their website.
Tip of the week
If your on your way down and pass a groomer heading up please ride the right side of the groomer fresh trail so we can fix up any corners that wash out as the trail is very soft after it is freshly leveled. Thanks for your understanding on this.
Have a good weekend.
