Road plowed to 27.5km. Active down hill traffic every day of the week. Weekends are usually service guys and the fly down the road!
I imagine this could be a bit touchy with the rapid warm up

We went up rocky point today. Parked at the 2 km in the rain. Was pretty wet most of the way up. Was raining tell around 4200' and real wet heavy snow up top. None of the slides have let go yet but I'd expect them to go in the next week with the warm temps. Visibility was next to none so we just played in the couple drainages at the bottom and called it a day.

rode Forster the day befor. Was snowing and socked in bad enough that we never bothered to try and get out of the bottom of the valley. There was a pretty good hump blown into the back wall and looked like no one had been up there in a few days. Trail was mint tell the wood shed then beat to hell like it usually is. If the light was better it would have been a great day.

Thanks for the update guys. Heading out tomorrow for a couple days. If anyone wants to tag along pm me.
What's the deal with the wood hut to the cabin I thought they'd be grooming right to the cabin this year?

I'm not to sure what the deal is ether. The snow bridge is in but they aren't grooming past there for some reason? Oh and the shed is just about out of wood. but that only matters if your willing to try and jump a piece of wood up the roughest trail around on your $15k sled lol.

Haha hey theyre trying.
In all honesty the couple times we've been back in there this year the trail to the bridge has been the best I've ever seen it. That's my experience this year. From the turnaround on is a different story for sure.
Heading in this weekend I'll let you guys know what we find.

You have issues carrying 6 pieces of wood on your big dollar sled I guess you deserve to have no fire....

Trail will not be groomed to the cabin this year, snow cat is to unreliable. Don't want it to crap out on the wrong side of the creek and have no way of getting it back.
Still looking for another machine, every trail fee counts and is appreciated.

Groomer should be able to make a great snow bridge now!
