Opening of Banadad Begin as Snow Falls

With five inches of snow at the Banadad's eastern trailhead and more at the trail's western end, trail crews began to pack and clear the remaining brush and down trees along the Banadad Ski Trail. A few more inches of snow and the western end of the Banadad Should be able to be opened for skiing. With trail crews currently making good progress, the remainder of the Trail is expected to be open by around mid December.
