Warmer tempertures of over 30 degrees on Wednesday and Thursday.
Snow Depth At Landing Parking Lot:
4" of new show at the Landing on 1/13. Unofficial snow depth for the season is 25". The lot will be plowed after the rain settles down.
1/15 It has constantly rained for several hours Wednesday and Thursday, ending at about 12:00pm today. Very wet and sloppy, and some wet spots are starting to show due to the weight on top of the ice. Trail past Yentna Station is not suggested for towing a load at this point. Snow is very wet and heavy now, so off-trail riding will be extremely challenging to keep yourself from not getting stuck.
Groomed trail on 1/13 from confluence of the (Scary Tree Trail) Yentna River north to Yentna Station. Larry will groom from the Landing to the confluence once the rain stops. The snow and rain will probably cause some overflow over the next few days. There is overflow at Root Beer Creek near the Fish Wheel. Stay high and be very careful if you are bringing a load out.
