Be Considerate

Please have some common sense out there. Someone stood in the tracks (skis perpendicular to both tracks) on Scales Road, and watched me going quickly downhill with no effort to move. I was able to finally jump out of the tracks, but not able to recover from being off balance and crashed. A whiplashed neck and head bruises left me wondering why that person simply skied away from an injured skier. Thanks to the people who showed up later.

Snowmobiling at Ward!

Unfortunately today three guys on dirt bike style snowmobiles tore through Ward Creek trails destroying parts of Ward trail, east Ward trail and Deep Slough trail. Be aware that there are deep pockets along some of those trails and possibly others. I rebuked them and sent them on their way.. unfortunately it was after the damage was done. Otherwise, the snow is great with more to come this weekend. Enjoy.

Tracks set!

The trails were in fine condition today. It was not too windy. There are still some areas of brush coming through. It was a great day on the trails with my new skis. Hoping for an extended and powder filled season!

Feli and Donna Iovoni and myself, John Mitchell, were the first to ski the new trial trail from the Dog Loop Junction at County Line , through the woods (some great downhill terrain) around the forest edge to Scales Glad. Well done, GMNC! This run was beautimus and the conditions were perfect – highly recommended!

Lower Ward – Friday AM, December 30, 2022

There were lots skiers on the lower part of Ward Trail this morning (Friday, Dec. 20, 2022). About 2 to 3 inches of new snow on the packing that had been done yesterday (Dec. 29). The Staircase and Wild backcountry trails were also tracked by skiers and snowshoe trekkers. The packing on Ward made it easy to access some hills, which were much fun this morning. I encountered 2 small, newly downed trees about 1 to 1.5 km from the Ward trailhead, but they were easy to ski around. Photo shows some “earned turns” on “Gretchen’s Hill” in the lower Ward area.
