3-7-13 Cle Elum Ranger District Grooming Report

Groomer: John Simon – Good Afternoon everyone,  This week we have groomed to Haney Meadow from Blewett Pass Sno-Park.  Today we did maintenance and repairs on the groomer, but also we had to close the gate to Mineral Springs C.G. because there is not enough snow to keep vehicles out.  Also out of the campground the trail going up the hill is bare and we will do too much damage to the ground and machine if we keep using it.  Tomorrow we plan on keeping to our regular scheduled grooming program on Table Mtn. and Keechelus Ridge.  The days ahead are going to be clear and warm, keep in mind that means more snow melt with ditches running water under the snow or melting out altogether.   Watch for deeper tree wells and softer snow.   Be safe,   John Simon
