For a report on the Chemeketans’ monumental trail logging project at Maxwell SnoPark see page 12-13 of their December bulletin at: http://www.chemeketans.org/ebulletin_archive/ebulletin_2017_12.pdf

The Deschutes and Willamette National Forests do essential work keeping our ski trails open, marked and signed through the winter; but they are desperately short of winter recreation staff this season. We can help them use their limited resources efficiently by sending a Nordic Trail Report whenever we ski the marked trails. “High Cascades Forest Volunteers” records volunteer activity and reports directly to Forest Service offices. You can access their special Nordic Trail Report form at:


You can also find the Nordic Trail form by searching for “high cascade volunteers” and going to their website: http://www.highcascadesvolunteers.com/. From the home page click “HCFV Work Report Form” in the left column and then click “Nordic Trail Report” at the bottom of the right column. Fill in the boxes on the form; describe any trail obstructions or problems you encounter; and then click “Submit” at the bottom.

Thanks for your help.
