dogs

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

I think it is great that dogs are allowed on some ski trails. I have 2 snow dogs (Siberian Husky & Samoyed), and they love the snow and skijoring. We use the other trails mostly in the winter, because The Canal trail is just too boring to do often. Where we go, the trails are groomed by volunteers, and with the packed trail, the dogs don’t affect it in any way. I think it is unfortunate that there are some closed minded people out there that just don’t like dogs, period. I can understand the aggravation caused by people that don’t ‘clean up’ after their dogs, and therefore ruin it for the rest of us. I get upset with that too. As for degrading the trail, that is rather on over statement. I have yet to have my ski swallowed up by a dog’s footprint. There are more and more real x-c ski areas that are opening certain trails to dogs, because of the growing need. It is very unfortunate that Salmon Hill ski area in Redfield had to close. They were very dog friendly. We love the breia trails in the summer for bikejoring. There really are some awesome trails there.

We groom as budget, time, and the weather permit. We’d love to groom 24/7, but sadly the budget doesn’t permit. Given the heavy weekend usage, we try to groom just before the weekend to maximize conditions for the largest amount of people.

The Alder Creek Trail system is located on Egypt Rd. in Alder Creek. Take Rte. 12 North. Egypt Rd. is the first left after the Rte. 28 junction in Alder Creek. The lower (railroad) lot is just across the railroad tracks on the right, and the upper lot is approx. 2 miles up the hill on the right.

The entire system map and individual trail maps are available on the Where We Are link of the BREIA website.

Hello BREIA,

I cannot find directions to the Alder Creek trail system. Any chance you could post them onto the BREIA site?

Thanks

As per last ski season, BREIA has started grooming the Jackson Hill trails and opening the Jackson Hill warming hut in mid-January. This is for budgetary reasons.

Hi, my friends and I were wondering why this hut is closed. We are the kind of people that like to leave it better than we found it. I hope no one has violated this place and ruined it for the rest if us. Please keep us posted at robertb@kalexenergy.com. Thank you.

The plan is to reopen the Jackson Hill warming hut and start regular grooming of the Jackson Hill trail system in mid-January.

Just wondering if the hut at JH will open eventually or is it closed for the season? Thanks.
