Trail Work


On Sunday, Oct. 7 this hardy crew received some instruction from Drew Marsh on using our new pole saw. We also had an update on our equipment and finished clearing tree debris from the path on side of the shelter. In addition, a trail survey was done and we are ready for a great ski season. Let it snow!

Grooming has ceased, but the skiing is still good.Thanks to all who have donated to Silver Crest enabling us to maintain one of the finest XC ski/ snowshoe areas in Montana. Thanks also to the United States Forest Service staff who give us great support.
This plaque is permanently posted at the trail head recognizing all major contributors to our grooming equipment shelter.
We are always looking for volunteers with a variety of skills to help us maintain this great winter recreation area. Special  expertise is needed in grant writing, accounting, and mechanical skills. For more information, please contact Chuck Jennings ( or 406-788-7659) or Bob Boland ( or 406-788-6565).

grooming report 6 april

More new snow!

The equipment is failing to keep up with the snow, so we’re down to using a George Foreman and tattered old roller, but managed to set track on all of the outer loop, most of the C trail, and to groom both sides of the B trail for skating. Happy spring.
