SKAGWAY & DYEA TRAILS 

The warm-up last week softened up the snow considerably but the West Creek trail out to the river was groomed and is still in great shape. A small kids loop was also groomed by the river.

Mike Kramer reports soft conditions as well at Log Cabin over the weekend from the warming trend. About one meter of mostly unpacked snow. They were able to ski-pack parts of the 2K and 5K trails but it was too soft for the machines to get around. Hopefully it will cool off this week to firm up the base and snow some more. There will be another non-motorized weekend this month on Jan. 28-30.

Reminder to all: the Log Cabin Ski Trails are designated for Cross-Country Skiing Only for the safety of everyone – no snow machines on trails please!  The Log Cabin Ski Trails are part of Recreation Sites & Trails BC and are maintained by our Log Cabin Ski Society volunteers from Skagway and the Yukon. The parking lot is on Parks Canada land, and outhouses in the winter are maintained by LCSS (parks will maintain them this winter).
