Good morning aficionados of undulating ribbons of dirt! It’s Friday, June 9th and here’s your weekend trail update-
Last week’s warm temps definitely helped with the melting process. With the exception of the occasional patch of snow and some runoff, most of Mid Mountain and below is ride, run and hike ready.
The MTF and Basin crews have been busy clearing blowdowns in the Mid Mtn zone. Mid Mtn is tree free from the Guard Rd to Red Pine lodge.
A little heads up- there is a summer long closure in place on upper Jenni’s from the Loose Moose intersection up to the angle station- same scenario as last year. The EPA will be capping the tailings with soil and the resort will be using this opportunity to overhaul some snowmaking. You can either climb the Drift Rd or hop on John’s Trail directly across Drift and take it to the top of Pay Day.
Mojave is closed temporarily while some of the man-made snow melts out. There was some severe rutting taking place where the snow-melt was flowing onto the trail. The MTF crew spent a lot of time and effort rebuilding the trail last year and we’d like to keep it in good shape for the long season ahead.
Rumor has it that the Wow trail is free and clear, at least from the jersey barriers down.
Please let us know via Facebook, if you come across any blowdowns in your trail travels this weekend.
Congrats to all of the 2017 graduates out there! We wish you all the best.
It should be a killer weekend for trail endeavors, so get out and get after it! And as always, be kind to one another out there!
