Denali Highway Trail Report Cantwell to Alpine Creek 12/11/11
We continue to get heavy helpings of snow at Alpine Creek. We are near 20" of fresh stuff since December 1st on top of at least a 2 foot base. The best part is, we had early snow this fall that put down a really solid base, that we haven't seen in a few years. The ride from Cantwell to Alpine Creek is excellent! A few wind humps around the usual spots at Canyon Creek, but nothing not easily negotiable. Off trail riding is excellent, and trail riding is perfect. We will continue breaking trails in up Windy Creek, Valdez Creek and the upper and lower Clearwater. The big Su is nicely froze. We are excited about Christmas at the lodge! Lil Bob will get more than he needs, once again, including some new trapping supplies. New Years is going to be a big hit with our traditional bon fire and fireworks! If your feeling cabin fever, get out and make tracks in all this fresh snow on the Denali Highway!
