April 2, 2022 Final Report

SKAGWAY & DYEA TRAILS 

The Dyea trails have very little snow on them, except on upper West Creek Road.

LOG CABIN TRAILS (see map below)

March 24 Log Cabin Grooming Report: Lots of fresh snow has fallen in the last few days which allowed the following trails to be groomed today including tracksetting:
– 2 K, 5K to the aid station, Saldi, Bourcy, Buckwheat Back Meadow including Corkscrew, and Blonde-Boorman to the 5K.
– Please note that the Caposey section out to the train tracks plus the snowmobile access trail to the aid station were also groomed BUT the section of trail alongside the train tracks (Powerline) was not groomed as the snow debris from track clearing prevented access. Skiers may be able to climb over the debris to ski along the tracks back to the parking lot or ski back on the 5 K or Boorman-Blonde trails.
 
UPDATE: Tracks were set one more time on April 2 before the equipment was brought back down to Skagway. Thanks to all our trail crew volunteers for great work this season!!!
