Re: Tracks!

Less snow accumulated over here than west and north of us. So like a fool I went south and east on Saturday afternoon. Son the Younger and I still had fresh tracks though, even if they weren't deep. Time for a photo dump..... https://i.imgur.com/shxTCVil.jpg I'm sure people recognize our spot. https...

Re: Thing happening at, well, downhill ski areas

I’m hoping Bob and Robin will make it to Cannon this spring. I’m hoping some of his leathers and pins magic will rub off on me. I’ll give you a heads up if it happens.

Re: Thing happening at, well, downhill ski areas

Seems I’ve been too busy to post for awhile, though I do a quick lurk once in awhile. I made it over to Mt. Abram for the Tele Fest that Jim Tasse is now putting on. Lots of old NET crew there. Ran into Bob Dow, Robin Roaf and Chris Goldsen Friday night at the bar while Jim was strumming some gratef...

Re: Tracks!

Nice Bob! It’s nice to see white outside.

Looks like there is hope for Saddleback

Re: August and everything after

I finally made back out to finish up the signage. I also grabbed as much of the flagging that was left out there as I could. I left the trio of flags in your photo, Bob, because I thought that was a nice marker for dropping into lines 3 & 4. https://i.imgur.com/CM4yXyIl.jpg I can't wait for snow now...

Re: August and everything after

is there an exit route planned, or do you just skin back up to the top of Cole Hill and ski out the way you skinned up? Hi Craig, the plan is an out and back area. Skin up from the kiosk via that orange trail on the map, it's actually called the blue trail on the property. Ski the glades, skinning ...

Re: August and everything after

I've been busy this past week, but here goes the glading report. It started early https://i.imgur.com/CRulJqal.jpg I set up the Fire Department's tent and grill on Friday evening. GBA had sponsors for food throughout the weekend and it started with breakfast for over 80 volunteers Saturday morning. ...

Re: August and everything after

Neat. One of Telewife's hiking partners does that as a volunteer. She has been stationed at the bottom of the Bridle Path before. They have done both Owl's Heads (out and back, not over) and Isolation together this summer. Big treks.

Re: August and everything after

I know I mentioned on T-East that as a Stewardship Team member of the Cooley-Jericho Community Forest I helped organize a partnership with Granite Backcountry Alliance to develop glades on the property. Its a go! We will be glading on September 28 & 29. It's a shameless plug for help, I know. Last w...

Re: August and everything after

Last weekend Telewife and I gave Son the Younger the choice of what to do before school started on Monday. He wanted to go to Kingdom Trails to ride and then get a burrito at the Tiki bar food truck. No problem! https://i.imgur.com/0OvJAMGl.jpg Sunday was such a stellar day. https://i.imgur.com/iDfM...
