Grooming Schedule 2018-19

March 12th, 2019

Our Grooming is  underway at  Keeler,   Spread, Whitetail.  Pete  Creek currently has logging activity and is not groomed. With two groomers, this should improve the quality of these groomed routes.

KEELER:  Keeler has been groomed 11 times, March 12th the most recent.

SPREAD CREEK:  Groomed twice.

Whitetail groomed once.

PETE CREEK: logging activity has prevented us from grooming here.

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

Before going into to the backcountry to ride and play check the conditions at

this is a change from last years avalanche forecasting.

The Bridge is back in place, allows access to Cheer & Spruce.

KEELER CHANGES

November 5th, 2018

Keeler Trail Changes: The USFS IPNF, has removed the gate and placed 3 foot boulders where the gate was on the Keeler Trail just past the saddle (in Idaho) Use the bypass located just before the gate area till we have 5 ft. of snow . Beyond the gate, the USFS has attempted to return the terrain to a natural state.

Caution: as a result, obstacles have been inserted into what was a road. use caution when trying to navigate this area. It’s best to use a workaround on the up hill side when snow conditions are not sufficient to adequately cover these boulders…
