Monday, January 7, 2019
Weather: -6C, overcast, light winds.
Snow: No new snow overnight, 4cm in the last 24 hours, 57cm in the last 7 days, total snowpack base is 185cm.
Groomed: Morrissey Staging Area to Wrangler’s Cabin, Doug Dean Trail, Notch, Corbin. Please note that a rain / warming event last week has left spring-like corn snow (think slurpee) conditions on top of ice below the Graffiti Rock elevation around 1300m to base. While we are grooming this area 4 days a week it can rapidly turn to moguls with traffic late in the day as the groomed snow does not have an opportunity to refreeze and bond together well under the current temperatures.
A reminder that River Road Extension and Coal Creek are CLOSED for snowmobiling by the private landowner – there is no access up Coal Creek, up the Matheson, or past Paige’s draw up to Martin / Leech via the road. Active hauling is in progress and the riding areas are currently stripped of snow from logging activities. The FSA has a zero-tolerance policy and fully supports the efforts of the landowner and conservation officers to enforce closures. IT IS ILLEGAL IN BC TO SNOWMOBILE ON A PLOWED ROAD! Those riding in closed areas, not stopping at the kiosk, or threatening FSA staff and volunteers may face fines and permanent loss of trail/facility access. Please help us spread the word and report information on anyone you see riding in these areas to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can provide education.
