Trail Report – February 29, 2024

Welcome to winter!  We received snow over the weekend! 15cm - 6-8" and a few extra inches the last few days.  Varying amounts on the trails between 6-12" in places.  Ride with caution and remember it is lower snow levels than normal.

STAGING AREAS:   Both are OPEN.  Eagle River Staging Area - Please keep out of the Gazebo and open field area and n/e of the Outhouses as we had trees taken out of that area earlier this winter.  Stumps and debris are still present.   Signs are posted. 

GROOMING

NORTH:   We groomed the Carson and Athabasca Loops.  The Pipeline Hill Loop is being groomed today.    Please do not use the Gundy  or Temporary Trail to the Gundy Rest Area as we did not get a chance to fill the creeks on neither of the trails this winter.  In addition, please do not use the Temporary Trail west of the Eagle River Casino as there is industry working on and adjacent to the trail in that section.   

SOUTH:  We have groomed the south side up to the Summit Cabin and Groat Creek Staging Area.  Summit, Bessie/Manweiler and the Goodwin Trails were groomed.  Summit to Shiningbank Lookout, Groat Connector and the Manweiler from Bessie Corner to the River is not groomed.  Please note, there is a major drop off at the Old Man River where the Silver Triangle Crosses.  It is not passable - Do not go there.  Grooming went well other that there is a stretch by the Airport that is rough.  

HAZARDS:
If you are heading out, please use extreme caution. As always, our words are "Ride at Your own Risk as the environment can change the conditions at any given time". We have not had many reports of folks riding.  Season End conditions apply - natural hazards - ice, debris, rocks. There was a few inches of hard/ice packed snow on the trails prior to the latest big dump. Creeks were filled in January.  Our trail ends at the banks - All water bodies may not be frozen.  Please stay off larger water bodies.
