Hey Jasperites More snow fell over night at about 3". It rained all day Sunday thru sunday night leaving everything a muddy mess. Our driveway is closed....no offense to anyone but the mud is really bad and if we dont let it freeze up or dry out, we will have nothing left of it. Big wind storm last week left many more trees toppled. Fortunately only one garage was slighty damaged and the owners have been notified. We dont have enough snow for snowmobiling but we are over 5' of snow since September so the moisture content is there! Back by popular demand.... Dude's Road report: FSR 250 remains wet muddy most of the way up from Terrace reservoir...Just past Alamosa campground expect slushy to snowpacked in shady spots...Lots of pot holes! All roads Green, Red, BOPR and yellow gate roads are wet muddy but passable as of this morning.
Currently in Jasper we have over a foot of fresh today with temps hanging around freezing. Snow off and on all day so far with another 3-5" expected....Roads are wet muddy and partially snow covered in spots. Ranger hill is clear but wet...the Narrows are slushy in spots. Colder temps this evening will cause roads to freeze. Safe travels The Caretakers
Well November is upon us again. Jerry and Kevin back for another season of caretaking. We are off to a wintery start with 5 feet of snow already as of the 6th of September when a freak 28" fell snapping hundreds of Aspen trees around the community. It looked like a war zone around here...several neighbors kicked in and got most of the roads cleared pretty quickly. All home owners were extremely lucky as no cabins were known to have been damaged. Here are the snow totals to date including this morning September 6th & 7th combined 28" October 25th & 26th 18" November 7th 8th & 9th 13" and still snowing We have installed a 130ft hose running from the spring well box up to the road for people who need water but dont want to drive down the the hill. You will still need to take a pump. Hose diameter is 5/8" by 130feet. New "SLOW" signs have been installed in old town Jasper to help quill the "need for speed" mentality some of our non-neighbors like to exhibit....New speed limit signs coming in the Spring. Friendly reminder...we dont usually call for snow removal until about 18" so feel free to call us for a road check before you come up.
