Report at 11-Dec, 10:24AM MST

Dec 5th: All trails shown as groomed were groomed by snowmobile packing and roller only. On Wednesday, between 8 and 10cm's of new snow fell on the Mt Shark trail system, doubling the unpacked base in some places, and covering most of the windswept bare ground. (There is a high likelihood that there is still a patch or two of bare ground at the end of the spur to Watdridge Lake, or there may be a small amount of new snow hiding bare rocky ground.) On Dec 3rd and/or 5th, all trails were groomed with a snowmobile and roller. The first almost 3km's of the Yellow 10k (and Green 15k), were groomed on Dec 3rd, and will have the latest snowfall on top of that grooming, as will Watridge Lake Trail.

The snow base on the Mt Shark trail sytem is still very thin, and many early season natural hazards are present, including bumps and uneven terrain, exposed rocks, brush, and possibly ground, as well as open water, ice, or slush. There are a number of water crossings that are particularly hazardous, with sharp drainages at the bottom of hills, some that may contain flowing water or ice. Use extra caution if skiing any trails at Mt Shark. - Comment last updated: Dec-05 6PM
