A Central Oregon Nordic Club work crew headed out from Edison Sno-Park on Saturday, July 21, to clear brush and hang new trail-marking diamonds on the section of the Supercharger trail between AC and the junction with the snowmobile trail.
“The trail [was] incredibly overgrown — almost disappeared,” says CONC co-president Gary Kelley.
Co-coordinator Jo Keen reports that 14 volunteers showed up to work, including three new helpers brought in by a Pine Mountain Sports promotion of the event.
“They were hard workers, as was everyone else,” Jo reports. “It took quite a while to walk in.”
Woody Keen drove his truck over some big lava rock obstacles to haul in the tools and lunch items.
As a result of the effort, skiing the trail should be much more pleasant this winter.
“It was really over grown with snowbush,” Jo reports. “The snow should settle down on it much better this coming season …. The project was a big success as that trail was really a mess!”
