Beaver Creek trail was groomed last night, and a classic ski track set, with varied results. The fluctuation in temperatures has left the trail a mixture of mushy- mashed potatoes and solidified concrete. Users should be advised that the stream crossing between the junction of the Pine Valley Trail and the Pine Valley Road is open water. There is also an under snow perennial stream on the western side of the North Fork/ Pine Valley meadow (this area will apparent due to the holes created by the snowmobile & groomer getting stuck). If you're looking for additional places to try skiing over the holiday weekend, stop by the Kamas Office, there are free Ski and Snowshoe maps located in the information boxes on the outside of the building. The Recreation Pass fee will be waived on February 20th in honor of President's Day. Hope you get out to enjoy your backyard National Forest, it's all yours!
