May 11, 2017 update, *Vehicle access is not recommended* due to the amount of rainfall we are experiencing flooding and erosion on Larch Hills Rd. and Violet Creek drainage areas. A 200 meter section of Larch hills Rd. has washed away, about .5km from the Chalet, just before and up to Stig’s Loop. About a foot (30cm) or more of roadbed has been washed away. Reino’s Run before Cottonwood cutoff is also flooded. We have closed all sensitive area protection gates except for the east end of Frodo’s Bog. That gate will be closed later. This trail report will be updated as needed.
A new and updated geo referenced Snow Shoe trail map is now on-line – see link below.
Our trails are volunteer and user maintained. Please carry pruners or a small folding saw with which to assist us in trail maintenance.
All last year’s snow shoe trails have been brushed and had summer windfalls removed and signs checked and replaced if needed. However, recent snowfalls may have bent small trees onto our trails. Please help us all by removing any that are obstructing your trail.
Snow shoeing in the trees is good. All trails are being well used.
The new Bail Out Trail is open, but still under development.
Significant trail changes for safety reasons
- Easy Peasy has been deactivated
- Old Bail Out is deactivated and New Bail Out now crosses both Ermine Frolic and Hot Shot at the top of the Ermine Frolic hill and descends on the north side of Ermine Frolic
These snow shoe trails trail changes have happened because they would have had to cross high speed and potentially dangerous XC ski hills on the new Sprint Trails.
