Yentna River grooming report–2/8/19

Trail Report: Deshka to Skwentna. The Rolly Creek trail is smoother than it has been all year, Thanks Willow Creek Trail Committee for the help. The rest of the river trail is in pretty decent shape. The snow did not set up as well as I would like after grooming Tuesday due to the warmer temps and the trail is still pretty narrow due to the deep snow, so all traffic has been basically in one lane. It is better than last weekend. I am going to groom again tonight (Friday Night) so it will be great first thing Saturday but the temps are still forecast a little too warm (30) for it to set up tight. It will be good, But pray for those single digit temps so it will stay that way. Come out and play this weekend and mash up all this deep powder snow. Stay Safe.  (editor’s note: the “Split-the-Pot” poker-style snowmachine fun-run is this Saturday 2/8)
