Just got a new to me machine today. Can't wait! It was my first year mountain sledding last year and I managed to put on over 1000 km in Fernie. Praying for at least a normal snow year, lol.

Still a lot of dirt in the trees at 5800 ft, wouldn't get too anxious just yet. Its just enough to hide some nice bulkhead busting nuggets.

You guys getting the rain there too?
24 hours and counting. saw pics of the Morrissey and its down too. Right close to the staging area. Gotta wonder what else is taken out. 10 days ago the Ram creek road was washed out and WILL NOT be fixed till next year. Never saw pics of corbin yet. Hartley will probably be done too.

100% we will be having issues. not sure about the logging as of yet but if it is like the past there is always logging going on around here every winter. FSA president is aware of the Coal creek issue.

Lodgepole road is damaged by the 30Km mark. Coal creek just past the old dump site is impassable. So at this rate EVERY SINGLE road access in around Fernie is damaged. Stay tuned fellow sledders could be interesting few weeks.
