Twin Cabins Rock Pit is the last place to unload. 

USE CAUTION on any of the plowed roads.  Logging activities are ongoing through the weekends.  You may encounter log trucks at any time.

2/8/2018 THE GOOD NEWS --- THE WET SNOW EARLY THES SEASON HAS MADE AN EXCELLENT BASE.. THE BASE IS STAYING AROUND FAIRLY WELL. THE BAD NEWS IS THAT IF YOU STIR THE WET SNOW WITH A GROOMER THE FASTER IT GOES AWAY.

 

This year has been a challenge to connect the normal routes.  We have worked with the logging activities to make some connectivity so riders could put together some loops.  

 

Currently getting to the outer (south) section from the plowed parking area at the Twin Cabins Rock Pit.  The Twin Cabins/Free Use  Road will connect you up to 4-Corners @ 221 Jct. The 221 GVl-SLM road may have bare section to the Adams Pit.  The 221 Road is CLOSED for highway traffic from Twin Cabins South.   

 

AT THIS TIME GROOMING IS SUSPENDED--- If the weather changes we will get back in operation.


THANKS FOR YOUR COOPERATON
