Banadad east end opened and tracked out 6.6 km to the Meads Lake Portage
Snow on the Ground- 22"
New snow past 24 hours- 1-2"
Snow base on trail: 19"
This year due to the December ice/heavy wet snow which littered the trail with brush and trees we have not been able to get the entire Banadad cleared. We cleared the Banadad's east end (19 km.) twice and a portion of the west end but the trees and tops of conifers kept falling into the trail. Now it is litter with more trees. Don't know when the trees which are load with heavy encrusted snow are going to stop falling.
