Trails Open!

From Roy Barkley email February 17 — “Due to deteriorating snow conditions the logging operation with Northwest Energy on MacDonald pass has been terminated for this season. A good portion of the hazard was removed from the upper line but the operation will resume next year as conditions allow. The closure order for the ski trails will be rescinded and public use of the trails may resume without any further interruption. Thank you again for your continued patience and understanding, it is tremendously helpful to have LCNSC as a cooperating partner with the Helena National Forest.”

And the parking lot was full, as were the trails, of skiers getting in their last Mac Pass ski of the year. What a wonderful season we've seen up on the Pass. I trust the loggers will do their thing safely, that the hazardous trees are tucked safely into their beds, and that next year we'll have uninterrupted skiing through August. (In my dreams.)
