Marty and Roger groomed this one on Wed 01/06/21. The snow is thin down low but there is approx. 24 inches at Windy Gap / Gold Run. We groomed all 80 miles of trails in the tow loops. Groomed up good and smooth as well as hard, so will need scratchers. Can pick up snow along side the road as you go in. Seen several Avalanches on the banks along the road. Biggest was between Windy Gap & Gold Run. Groomed out Hay Camp Road to Fish Creek and back to Transfer Park as well as Across to Jersey Jim.
Other Information
Gate at the parking lot is open. snow is thin but you can ride, currently all the way and not have to ride dry. Will need scratchers due to hard snow conditions. You may drive up the road further and unload. Gate is closed at Transfer park. Road is totally covered above gate but thin the first couple miles. Be Cautious of Avalanche Danger and Rocks/stumps just under the serface of the snow.
