Jonesville Please refer to Eagle Lake Ranger District Beautiful new snow. Trails are in top condition. Storm after storm is adding mois- ture to our streams and lakes. The Forest Service sent out the survey results for Chester: As of March 1, the area is 150 percent of aver- age. Last year at this time, it measured 59 percent on the same course. The Chester/Swain system is beautiful. In places, there are 10 feet of snow. Grooming efforts have been extended through March 26. After that, groomer operators begin grading roads and preparing for the spring thaw. Bogard trails were groomed at the beginning of the week. It's unusual to have so much snow across the Pine Creek Valley. When spring hits, the dips fill with water. Be careful when flying across the flats: It is hard to see the topography when everything is flat and white! On the Fredonyer long loop the snow is getting thin. Groomers are starting to hit dirt on Moonlight and at Willard Hill. Next week inter- section signs will be pulled from this system. The short loop has plenty of snow and the Diamonds are providing beautiful riding. Take advantage of the spring conditions and spectacular vistas. Skiers: play at Hog Flat. We are trying something different this week, grooming a loop along Hog Flat. Bring the kids, the dog and enjoy skiing the open spacious meadows. Parking is avail- able at Goumaz to access this newly groomed loop. Hat Creek Ranger District Groomers at Ashpan are hard at work. Wes and George have done a super job keeping up with the storms and providing great riding opportunities at Ashpan. On the weekends, the parking lots are full. Reports say that the lower portion of the 16 Road is thin- ning out, only a foot left in places, with some of the high- est elevation trails holding 15-plus feet. Volunteers will continue to groom as long as the snow, the temperatures and interest allows. Skiers: Butte Lake Road is groomed to the Lassen National Park Boundary. Almanor Ranger District A great snow year for the west slope trails. Volunteer Larry Bird has been a positive addition to the grooming team. He is excited because everyone is out riding, enjoy- ing his hard work and dedica- tion to the program. The snow is thinning on the Mill Creek side of Highway 172. No pave- ment showing yet. The system will be open until the county plows Highway 172. Skiers: McGowan Lake Ski Trails are in beautiful shape. Ski from Highway 89 to the Church Camp Road and down to Highway 36. The five-mile trail borders the southern edge of Lassen Volcanic National Park. For more information on conditions and restrictions, call the Almanor Ranger District, 258-2141, the Eagle Lake Ranger District, 257-4188, or the Hat Creek Ranger District, 336-5521.
