Weather: -3c, light winds, snowing lightly
Snow: 5cm new snow overnight, 54cm in the past 7 days, total snowpack base is 176cm. Warming event with valley bottom rain at the end of the week left spring-like corn snow riding at lower elevations (below 1300m) but dumped a significant amount of new snow in our main upper riding areas.
Groomed: Morrissey Staging to Wranglers, Doug Dean Trail, Summit Trail, Notch from Wrangler’s Cabin to top of the second double hill. No grooming up the back of the Notch headwall due to avalanche hazard.
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. 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.
