A Pioneer Road Goodbye (until next season)

The ski season for the Pioneer Rd is over. The snow is melting away fast and Enco is plowing the road so they can remove their logs.

Thanks to Tim, Mike, and Hank for coming together at the last minute to remove JNSC equipment from the road before Enco arrived.

If you still are needing some Island Time consider Eaglecrest – especially the upper loop. It is worth the effort to get up there either by your legs or Hooter chair. The skiing is great and the scenery magnificent.

Amateur Hour

If you see R. Imel’s name on the grooming calendar, and it’s a powder day you know that the grooming will eventually be done. After the the schneef has been hoovered. So this day was like any other. There is plenty of material for a reality TV show ‘The Real Lives of Alaskan Groomers’. Episode 7 had P. Ord stranded in deep powder halfway up Montana Creek with no recovery tools! That was the last big storm. So Sedgesprite played it safe tonight, pulling the roller with Mini-Sedgesprite as shovel mate, machine handler and no. 1 ratchet puller if things went pear shaped. New snow was limited, so the BTB (Border to Border) assault was erased with a quick combover. Temps 32F, snow fast.
