How It’s Been:
It pretty much snowed all week until yesterday (Jan 30) when we saw the sun for a blue sky powder morning. And now it’s snowing again.

We’ve had a lot of snow and it looks like we’re expecting a lot of snow. There’s 52cms in the forecast and it looks like the temps will stay cool. There has been a lot of wind with this weather.

Common sense says that with this much new snow that avalanches are going to be bigger and more likely. How about finding some low angle trees, where you’re at lower risk, and having a blast?

Economic Impact Study
Don’t be surprised if you are asked to fill out a survey at one of our trail heads. We are conducting an Economic Impact Study this winter. We’re hopeful the results of this study will help us get more funding to continue to make snowmobiling infrastructure better. Thank you for your patience.
