    Excellent question.
    If you have a long pry bar maybe that's it. Lunch, pop water that type of thing. We have all the power saws we need. Sled or quad depending on my snow report tommorow.
    Club mbets camping out there in the groomer area and they supplied the burgers for supper. Come on out give us some of your time and strong back and then stick around for supper and some social time with some fellow Cataract Riders. Maybe meet some new friends.
    Thanks

    Depending how my work week goes I might be able to chip in with some leg work Friday and Saturday, I like what you guys are doing and it seems like a shame not to help out. I may be able to bring two 5 foot long pry bars along with me, and some battery operated sawzalls if needed. What time do you guys typically meet at the staging area?

    Also I wanted to ask about the monthly meeting - maybe I'm confused. On the website it says that everyone meets on the third Tuesday of every month but somewhere on page 2 of this thread it says the first Tuesday. I'm assuming the website is incorrect.
    I will stop by whichever it is

    Thanks. We think the same. We love what's happening out there and the future is looking good also. Many of us are camping out there in the groomer area that's on the East side of the road just before you turn into the Cataract Creek staging area. We will be there and leaving around 930 10.00 time.
    Be good if we can get a count so I know how much food to buy.

    Thanks Scott for getting the website issues straightened out.

    Was out there today working on grooming sleds. About 5-6 inches of fluffy snow. Talked with the C O`s out there today. I had to school them on the area being closed till December 1st. They are aware and are checking on hunters and will keep eye on the area. Snow has a good start and we need more before December. Work weekend coming up on the 11,12.

    Thanks for the update Glen. So will you be using snowmobiles or quads for trail clean-up? I take it that your measurement of 5-6" was taken at the parking lot correct? It would sure be nice to be able to use our snowmobiles to start packing down the snow on the trail. I would think that you don't want quads out there chewing up the snow base. Also, if your staging out of Catarac, can you get snowmobiles across the rocky river bed to access the rails without destroying them?

    Wilkerson Creek across from staging area is frozen already and we will be putting in the bridge across Cataract Creek Friday. Sleds and packing will be done as they remove the fallen trees. As long as weather holds it all should be good. Snow further back will be better and mostly sled only back there. We have work on the Valley Bottom Trail to get it open best as we can for the season. Will have sled guides out there packing also. Hope you can make it out.

    Relating a satellite phone message from last night from Glen: All is good at Cataract, 1 Degree above upon arrival in the dark with clear skyís, all the snow is still there from last weekend, supposed to snow last night - a sprinkling. All good to go!
