    Temps have been in the low 20's as the high, and just dipped to -10 F early Wednesday morning. We are back to 15 F at 9:00 am Friday morning.

    Snow Depth At Landing Parking Lot:

    No new snow since 2/9. Only a trace from the storm that came through Anchorage and the Valley early Friday morning.

    Trail Conditions:

    2/18 Watch out for racers this weekend! It's Iron Dog time!! Lots of flat light out there. Overflow that was showing last week is frozen and crusted over now due to the colder temps we've had the past few days. The trails are packed hard and bumpy in spots, especially after you pass Luce's Lodge on Yentna. Overall conditions on the Yentna have improved over the past week or so allowing for faster travel. Last Friday there were a lot of windblown snow drift past the big bend on the Yentna, but there shouldn't be any issues with drifting now. Conditions off trail are still challenging up north with the huge amount of snow that they have in the area.

    Default Trail Change!

    Deshka River X-over users please note that by Wednesday 23rd there will reroute do to the ice bridge starting to go out by the second island as you go up the main channel.
    New trail will be turn left after the first island and go around the west side of the second island.
    There is a ruff in trail now!
    New markers and lath will let you know. The Willow Trail Comm. will also groom the new bypass as it is part of the SVWT.
    This may be a good trail for rest of this season and hopefully also next year!
