3/28. Groomed from Manastash up the 3100. Snows great from the second bridge up. Went up to Quartz then out the 3120rd to Tamarack Springs. Down the 3330rd. Good snow down to 3300rd. Nice place to park at junction. Then went up 119rd to Five Corners and 111rd to 4510rd.
Also did Windy Pass Loop then down the 4510 to 4517. GREAT SNOW all the way around.
The snow is great from Woods and Steele too. Probably be good riding fom there for 2-3 weeks unless they open the road to vehicles. Most snow in the last three years I’ve seen at the end of the season. Almost a foot of snow still on the road.
Looks like another sunny weekend. Be safe and have fun.
These were the last trips for the season. Have a great summer
John Simon, USFS Groomer Operator, reported this is the last grooming report of the year. We are finished grooming, I was talking with the WA State Parks and a grooming coordinator and they both suggested not grooming this week due to the climbing snow elevations and warm temps. The work we would do on the trail would not last long enough to make it worth the effort or the money spent. So we are now doing year end maintenance on the snowcats.
John Simon reported: It’s getting to be that time of year. Today we opened the following roads to wheeled vehicles: Taneum 3300, Lion Gulch 9712,and Cougar Gulch 9727. On all these roads you can get up a couple miles on mostly bare road. Also, The Reecer creek road is now plowed up to the rockpit (very icy in spots). It remains a Sno-Park. And the Sno-Park sign broke off at Pipe Creek, and with the season winding down, we did not replace it.
3/21 groomed from Manastash up the 3100rd to Quartz Mtn and back.
Great snow from second bridge up. People are parking at Barber Springs and smaller rigs at wide spots just before bridge.
Will groomed from Manastash one more time next week. Also planning grooming from Woods and Steele tomorrow and again next week.
See you on the trail… Be safe with all this new snow.
