The snow is piling up! With our last storm cycle we are looking at an incredible start to the season!!
We have a solid base and with over 40 cm's in the past 7 days it is only getting better.
That said, it is early season and we suggest a little caution to ensure you and your machine stay safe.
Our grooming team is working hard to get our zones ready for the official opening on December 1, 2018.
As always we thank you in advance for supporting Blue River and the Blue River Powder Packer Society.
Groomers are ready for another awesome season.
