Quartz Creek is groomed out to the Crescent Creek Trailhead with a short spur loop near the end. Tracks are set along the road. Crescent Campground loop to come soon.

The Russian Campground loop was groomed with tracks set out to the Grayling parking lot at the end of the main road yesterday night (Thanks Elijah!) so there will be a couple inches of snow that fell today on top.

However, the Russian Campground entrance has not been plowed yet this season and should be considered impassable for any 2wd vehicles. It is challenging even in a 4wd vehicle so proceed "at your own risk" and make sure you have a shovel and somehow to extract yourself from soft snow before turning in.

Russian River Campground

Just rolled and packed all the Russian River Campground loops and main road to Grayling! We'll be running the groomer later this week. So far, snow and daylight look great!

Tuesday, February 04, 2020

The Russian River Campground road is rolled out to Grayling and around Red Salmon loop.

More work to come including a proper groom.

Thanks Elijah for your help moving the equipment and for the first roll of the season.

Quartz Creek is groomed with classic tracks out to Crescent Trailhead. Still powdery and soft on top but base is building up nicely. Russian River Campground coming soon. Cheers,
