Mt. Hood Snowmobile Club Groomed Report

Grooming Report March 24, 2024

Due to the lack of snow and the warm weather, we are officially calling this season over. I would like to thank all the groomers and the people that rode along with us. It was an outstanding year. Hope everyone has a good spring and summer. See you next winter. 
Tim Curly, 
Mt Hood Snowmobile Club Grooming Chairman

Avalanche Warning
An avalanche warning has been issued for the West North, West Central, and Stevens Pass zones as of 6pm on February 27, 2024.
A major winter storm will impact our region Tuesday evening through Thursday night. This system has it all: heavy precipitation, very strong winds, and warming temperatures. All of this will fall on top of a generally cold snowpack with known weaknesses. In many spots, the storm (and avalanche danger) will peak during the daylight hours Wednesday. 
Very dangerous avalanche conditions will develop in all forecast zones. We’ve issued avalanche warnings for places near Hwy 542, Mt Baker, the Mt Loop Hwy, and Stevens Pass. Very large natural avalanches are expected. This isn’t a time to try and thread the needle. Put plenty of space between you and anywhere avalanches can start, run, and stop.

Red loop was done wed.  Blue loop was done Thursday.  A modified yellow was done friday as it took 6 hours to get the 60ish trees out of the trail on the east side loop.  Trails are hard and smooth but more snow is needed.
