Snow Storm Update

Sawyer crews were out this weekend (1/8 - 1/9) clearing the trail corridor and, while they have made a considerable impact, there is still a ton of work left to do. As of Sunday 1/9 The Col Du Shade, Atomic and the Palmer Trail (power line loop) remain impassable.

PLEASE avoid the trails until crews have had a chance to get to them. The freeze/thaw cycle is also in full effect and the melting snow will soon begin (already has) to have an impact on the trail tread.

If you do go out, please try and do so when the trail tread is frozen (it won't be dry for a while) and PLEASE be safe. There are still lots of precariously hanging branches and a lot debris on the actual corridor.
