Our Grooming has started, we hope to have a second groomer for our Spread, Whitetail, & Pete groomed routes. This should improve the quality of these groomed routes.

KEELER:  was groomed on the 30th. of December,  January 11th, January 23rd. The LMC groomer (second one) was used to groom Keeler on the 2nd of February, the 13 of February. 

SPREAD CREEK: Has been Groomed, lots of trees made the work time consuming.

Whitetail is our new connecting route: Was groomed on 2/15

PETE CREEK: Groomed from Whitetail down to the trailhead on 2/15

The North/Beetle Creek route will no longer be groomed, but is still an open route connecting Spread & Pete Creek.
