There is a good turn around at Forster North road around the 34km. The main staging is 27.7km, and they have a high lead logging setup at the 30km with Active logging Monday-Friday. Will be there all winter apparently.

It may turn into a **** show but nothing we can do about it, the club put a request that the grader operator make a flat cut on the bank from 27.7 to the 30 so we don't have to ride gravel.

Doom n Gloom brought to you by PanU Doom!!

Not doom and gloom, just gotta have enough toys to cover all seasons....
Had a great day in the Alpine snowboarding, crazy inversion. -15ish at the parking lot with fog and cloud and blue bird -2 above 2000m.
Large hoar below tree line may spice things up after the next storm.

That's some weird temp swings eh. Forecast looks like some fresh coming first part of next week maybe. Fingers crossed for a dump and a couple good days before Christmas holidays

Forster is about as wide open as it gets around Here. Brewer would be next, most other zones have steep terrain to cross or climb to get to.

Oh maybe we didn't get to right area, lol thx

Forster has a bunch hidden pockets in the meadow, You have to explore in the trees. I see many people follow the trail from the cabin to the thunder water lake climb and miss all the fun
