Trail Status

Valley View and the road alongside Broadway out to HB Mtn Road is closed to skiing until mid-December because of use by logging trucks accessing salvage patches at the end of Valley View. But we can carefully cross the logging road at the end of Broadway to ski out Wetzin’kwa and out and back on the Upper Logging Trail; a nice 14 km round trip from the lodge. Note that Down the Mountain is also an out and back ( or down and up) ski until Valley View re-opens.

The dog trails (10 km) are in good shape but the 5, 7.5 and 10 km sections of the Pine Creek Loop beyond Hound Heaven is blocked by rough sections and deep water on the 5 km cutoff, F-G  and the swamp. We need a deep freeze and/or more snow.

The trails are marvelous for this time of year but it is still early season so watch for wet spots and bits of dirt where the snow is still thin. There are also small twigs sticking up in places. Feel free to bring some small clippers to do a bit of pruning. Everyone will appreciate it.
