1) A dog walker dropped through to her knee last weekend on Range Lake just south of Parker Park and near shore. This was likely overflow but still be attentive as the lake is shallow.
2) The city has a curtain installed under the causeway to Latham Island. Its intention is to assist in freezing the ice but the water levels dropped so it has become a barricade. The City is going to haul snow down to the curtain and bank up both sides to make it passable.
3) There weak ice on Banting Lake at the North East corner of the big island at the north end of the lake. Trails are open but rough.
4) There is open water hole if you are traveling by snowmobile, walking or skiing towards Burwash but it is at the Burwash end just before you start the Burwash-Hay Lake trail
Keep the trail reports coming in!
For those interested we’ll be putting out another (smaller) load of gravel this Saturday. We’d appreciate your help with sled/toboggan, quad/trailer or simply a shovel. The plan is to have gravel dropped off along Deh Cho boulevard at the road crossing. At 10:00am we will haul it in towards the airport fence to fix some of that trail.
A huge thank you to those that were out last Saturday spreading 2 loads of gravel. The Range Lake airport fence trail will be much better for grooming this year and the big rock off Hordal is much easier to pass.
Your board will be meeting this Thursday to set some dates for events this year. Let us know if there’s anything specific you would like or if you’d like to host something. We’re in this together.
