SNOWMOBILE SEASON 2016-17
ALERT--The big Windy clear-cut will no longer
be groomed due to avalanche danger.
Be careful out there.
PLEASE NOTE: Groomer operators are not authorized to begin grooming until there is 18 inches of snow at the groomer shed. Grooming cannot begin until
after December 15th.
January 11th--The Area 29 groomer is back up and running and headed out of Elk River today. It went up the basin towards windy and down towards four corners. It then back tracked to try to pack the trail. The groomer will be going out again tomorrow.
Elk River has received lots of snow and our operators are working hard to try to get the trails opened up. With all this snow the groomer operators could use some help. If anyone is riding in the ER area, please go up and try to knock the powder down on hemlock so the groomer can make it to the top.
January 12th--The groomer headed back out today. From the airport, it headed up to Captain's Cabin then out to Four Corners and back to Capt Cabin then out to Big Green and back down Pete's Creek. There's lots of powder so it will be helpful to have riders on the trails. The groomer will be out again next week. Have fun out there.
January 15th--Area 29 groomer was out Sunday. We opened the trail up Shaddock over to Morris and groomed about a mile past Perkins Cedar Grove, then back down Morris to Elk Basin and back to Elk River. The groomer will be out again on Tuesday, and if all goes well they plan to groom over to Hemlock and possibly connect with the very top of Morris, if it is not too drifted.
January 17th--The groomer went out again Tuesday morning. It headed up the Basin, over Hemlock, down the East Fork to the logging operation and back up to repack the trails to Elk River. The snow conditions are great so get out there and enjoy.
OUR GROOMER OPERATORS ARE VOLUNTEERS
So let's send out a big THANK YOU
to the Area 29 groomer operators
for all their hours dedicated to snowmobiling.
