I walked up Stovetop and Snakes and Ladders with my saw. They are both clear now.
Rich Humphries needs to be given credit for most of Stovetop. I rolled up on him and helped him finish off Stovetop.

My saw has been seeing a lot of use. There seems to be a lot more deadfall lately than in the past.

New year, new thread

was that today? must have just missed you on snakes. fyi there's a big tree down on tseuga, couldn't move it as it was still attached.

PSA: the long curvy ladderwork on snakes (close to the end, has a left/right fork) is REALLY SLIPPERY. i was fine until i tried to turn the curve then went flying lol

Light dusting of snow top to bottom. Frozen, grippy trail (probably some of the best conditions of the season actually)

The road up is mostly frozen and fast other than in a few sunny spots where it is a bit sloppy. Lots of logging, dump, concrete, and pickup trucks up and down the road for the Hydro Powerline project.

Amazing conditions. Barely any snow below the old road gap. Jumps on Platinum, H[HTML_REMOVED]J, and a few of the other trails are running well. Thanks to anyone that cleared trees out. Had a great up there.
