Snow depths have increased since my last report. Not as much wind, but very cold. The forecast is for a small amount of snow throughout this week and continued cold. I rode on Saturday with 13 others, three of them were my guides. We only put on 40 miles. Found one of our normal logging roads with no tracks and 4 to 5 feet of snow. Wore my old body out breaking trail and had to share the honor with Lee Hart, one of our guides. If that one trail was a sign of what is out there, I have been under reporting the last two reports. Riders are all very happy with what they are finding for riding conditions. Boondocking is also excellent, with good powder in the trees. With the new snow avalanche danger still remains high. Many hills have been sliding and a few partial buries. Be very careful around hills 45 degrees and above.

Rick’s Snow Report For Winter 2018 – 2019: As of Thursday; December 20, 2018. Just a few inches of snow since my last report, but a lot of wind. This helped settle our snow, and started our base, but also moved a ton of snow into the valleys and east facing slopes. This leaves some ridges bare that should be avoided and increased our avalanche danger. A foot of snow on what we have would make riding much better. On a more positive note, our temps are going down. Daytime highs will average 27 degrees throughout the coming week and lows will be averaging 12 degrees. Some snow in the forecast, but no blizzards are in our near future.

Rick’s Snow Report For Winter 2018 – 2019: As of Thursday; November 29, 2018. We had a full lodge this past weekend and few hungry riders. They were all happy and surprised with what snow they did find. Most said it was better than what they expected. Snow depths slowly continue to improve. They are good for this time of year. Riders can leave from the lodges on 8 to 12 inches of snow and encounter 20 to 30 inches over 75% of the riding area. We are still developing our base and more snow predicted for this weekend. Daytime highs will average 18 degrees throughout the coming week. Lows averaging 10 degrees. We are off to a good start earlier than usual this year. Let’s hope this weekend drops a bunch!

Rick’s FIRST Snow Report For Winter 2018 – 2019: As of Monday; November 19, 2018. We have had a few riders the past two weekends and they were happy with what they found for snow. Most said it was better than what they expected. Snow depths are great for this early in the year. Riders can leave from the lodges on 8 to 12 inches of snow and encounter 20 to 30 inches over half of the riding area. We still need much more to develop a good base. No new snow predicted for this coming week. Daytime temps will stay 41 degrees or lower and below 23 degrees at night. We are off to a good start earlier than usual this year. Let’s hope for more!
