If you got up to the top of Mt. 7 before the snow flew you might have seen this berm at the top of the new Schacher trail. A lot of thought went into this new trail's location and it did disturb another classic trail but rest easy as there is still great access to all the downhill trails off the launch of Mt. 7. Hurray for new trails and progression!
The club executive got word today that logging will begin in the blocks that are adjacent to or surround the Schacher "immediately". Where and when and how it affects trails exactly is yet to be determined, but you'll know when the club knows. Be aware of increased logging traffic on the Bowle-Evans Road. If you see trucks with logs like this, you aren't on Mount 7 and you may be lost. ... See MoreSee Less
