Deshka Landing

We received about six inches of fresh heavy snow Thursday and the forecast has another six to ten Friday into Saturday. Trails are washboard in areas and some may not have had machines on them yet. There is significant overflow off the trail on the Deshka River so staying on the trail is highly recommended.

Deshka Landing

The recent snowfall left about twelve inches of very dry snow over the region. Trails are solid underneath but the trails are very rough so pack the eggs and beer well. Warmer temperatures should help the snow pack down better and some grooming is going on. Iron Dog starts Saturday at 11:00 so watch for racers to be heading up the Yentna River as they head out.

Housekeeping notes: Some of you have forgotten your trailers at the Landing this winter and the snow building on top of them really shows. Highly recommended to check on them as we see a few roof collapses every year. Equipment and snow machines should be trailered when left in the lot. Items left on the ground are hard to see when plowing especially with all the snow. The next several weeks will be very busy as we start getting closer to spring and the longer days of March.
