EJ Update – Greater SnowKing 6/20/10

Hello everyone.  Operation trail construction continues in Upper Game Creek.  The Student Conservations Association kids are doing great.  At the moment the kids along with our help have dug almost 4000 ft. of trail.  The trail is coming out great.  The soils continue to hold just enough moisture to bring the new tread right to compaction.  The new tread is very buffed out from the hard finishing work effort of the FS/FOP crew.  The kids have been troopers camping out in some inclement weather early on in their hitch.  They have never once complained and keep a great attitude.  It is nice to see them finally get some good weather.  The SCA kids are digging through Monday.  By the end of it all they will have dug for 10 days and will have constructed about a mile of trail.  Mike Welch arranged to get the kids pizza at Mountain High Pizza Pie on Monday.  Thanks Mike for the nice reward for the SCA’s.

We saw upwards of 40 people checking out the new reroute in Game Creek on Friday.  The trail users were loving it.  I bet that there will be a ton of folks out there this weekend.
