Ski Trail Survey Work
Wednesday October 18th (corrected!)
8:30 to 3ish

Most of the project work on ski trails is complete; it’s time to do surveys of the trail conditions and deal with blowdowns to prepare for the upcoming ski season. 

The trails in the Dutchman ski trail system have largely not been surveyed yet. There are a few known logs down. The goal of this week’s work will be to walk the trails, cut smaller stuff that might be down on the trails, and mark the location of bigger blowdowns that will need to be cut. If we have any certified sawyers who sign up we may tackle some of these bigger logs. Depending on turnout, we’ll cover multiple trails. 

  • Wednesday October 18th 
    • The NOAA forecast for Tuesday at Dutchman:  Mostly sunny, with a high near 65
  • Plan -  Meet at Cascade Lakes Forest Service Welcome Center at 8:30 AM 
    • Please bring regular PPE (hard hat, gloves, glasses, long sleeve shirt, etc) We can provide PPE if need be.
    • Distance hiked may be 5 miles, but likely less
    • Expect to return to town between 3 and 4.
Please either sign-up here or contact Charlie at if you are interested in helping on Wednesday; also contact Charlie if you need a hard hat. 

Thanks for your support of the trails!!
