The latest from Maclaren-Jan 21 snow report

#1 Post by cleary » Thu Jan 21, 2010 2:56 pm

Hello again from the Maclaren Valley,

Well we have good news to report at last. Since the last Newsletter we have gotten a good foot and half of snow. This gives us enough snow to make riding good on and around the Denali Hwy.

The Hwy to the west of Maclaren Lodge is in great shape, and with the exception of a couple of bare spots on the pavement the east side is in great shape as well. You can now get off the road and go around these spots on the pavement, so travel from Paxson to Maclaren Lodge is good.

On the Denali Hwy there is a little drifting around 20 mile so watch out for that.

All other trails will be put in by this weekend, so riding will be a blast as the snow is light and fluffy. Be prepared to be covered in powder.

I think it’s safe to say that this time of year, most of the local business on the Hwy will have some vacancies, so get out and enjoy our most spectacular area.

We look forward to seeing you again, and as always, “keep the white underneath, the blue overhead, and all the goodies in the middle”
