Unless things have changed since last year, the girls at the front desk rarely have a clue as to how the trails look. Sure, they have a bulletin board with the local conditions. Might also try the people at Ryden's, they get sled traffic there, and might have a better idea on what's open or not.



Next week, we'll take a quick run up Blueberry, and see how things look.

We met the Conservation officer several years ago, who had been getting his son out to help with the grooming. We met the son's girlfriend working behind the counter up at Rydens a couple years ago, maybe she tags along nowadays. I know they have a splendid area and do a great job keeping it up. Fun times!
