Beautiful day on Monday, but at 9:00 am on Tuesday it is -20 F.
Snow Depth At Landing Parking Lot:
About 3" of new snow on Sunday night.
Ron V. took the groomer down on Monday to Scary Tree (mouth of the Yentna). Dave L. came down from his place on the Yentna with the groomer in the past few days as well. There are enough stakes out on the Susitna River, however the signs are not up yet. If we get some warmer weather in the few days the signs will go up as well as some more stakes. There are a few open leads on the Susitna between the Landing and Corral Hill, but the trail is put in quite a distance from the leads. The trail has set up well. Once on the Yentna the trail is straighter and has more stakes put in at this time. Kroto Slough is not marked yet, but there is a single identifiable trail that almost all people are using. Deshka X-Over is in good shape and some people have started motoring up the Su Valley Winter Trail.

Update on Thursday night
The winds over the past two days have windblow some snow off the river ice, however the trail is still in good shape. You will run into some drifting of 4-8 inches at times, but nothing horrible. There is a spot or two where the trail is running where you may run out of snow and onto ice only, but for the most part the guys coming in today had no major complaints. It's been about 17 all day, but the constant breeze is dropping it lower.
David Chappel/Loonasee at Shell Lake reports:
12/21/10 Trail through Shell Hills was groomed for the first time. Trail from Shell Lake Lodge to Hewitt Lake Trail outside of Skwentna has been marked. We will be working on the Shell Hills trail to improve it to the conditions of last year, weather permitting.
