Due to extreme weather, all trails are closed effective immediately! Stay tuned for further announcements.
Gee/Haw trail (off the 2-mile) was packed and groomed today, with a little help from resident moose. Kris also groomed a trail around Beach Lake - not recommended for sprint teams at this time. Access from alternate (south) side trail only (connector from 4-mile trail is gated.) The ski club groomed a parallel trail around Beach Lake with tracks, please stay on the sled-dog side.
Kris groomed main trails (north side) through 8 mile plus staging area with help from guest groomer Jim Cantor.
The 10, 12, and 14 mile were groomed today, crust was broken up but they are only good for distance teams - groomed today - crust is broken up.
KR groomed Junior 1/4 mile trail through 8-mile, including turns. Volunteers needed to shovel snow into culverts - runnable but very thin on south end.
Alt and 16 miles and inlet trails are groomed and ready for distance teams, enjoy. If you are using any sprint sections( 2-3-4-6-8) please make sure you are going in the right direction. kp
All trails at CDMA are officially groomed and opened to all members! Our crew worked hard to put it together for you! Please make sure you get your trail pass.
Beach Lk, Dee Lk and Clunie Lk all have a base trail packed around them. Only 3" pack on top of ice. Hooks will NOT hold on the lakes. Beach Lk packed extra wide for skijoring ON LAKE ONLY. Enjoy.....
KP packed north side trails outbound trail to Clunie Lake, turned around at "Cinnamon" (the new lollipop at the 8 mile turn) and came backward on the outbound 6 trail. The 4- and 6-mile inbound trails are not packed. Plan is to pack the alternate (south) side tomorrow.
KR structured the staging area, 2-mile, 3-mile, and outbound trail to Junior loop. Should be okay for delicate sprint dog feet! Beach Lake Road is sanded.
The 4-mile trail is in good shape after yesterday's earthquake. Wet/icy areas in the swampy area after the inlet loop turnoff. Photos courtesy of Kris Rasey.
