Sunfield on Jackson Hill is not packed/rolled as of 1/21/12. This was a disappointment, as this is one of my favorite trails and one BREIA advertises for the view! Split tree down on connecting trail from “Into the Woods” to Sunfield probably blocking equipment from accessing Sunfield. Chainsaw anyone?
Otherwise all else seems like early season conditions – in the middle of January! – on Jackson Hill.

BREIA response:

Thanks, Matt, for reporting the downed limb.

The Sunfield is not closed to skiing, it just hadn’t been groomed by yesterday. Skiing is permitted any time you can get there and that there is enough snow.

The BREIA system had a huge amount of blow-down throughout our 38 miles of trails last weekend during the windstorm. That, the sudden flash-freeze and our first real snowfall that could be rolled and then groomed, created a great amount of work for our crew. The Sunfield and and spur trail from Into The Woods was one of the last trails on the list, and one we couldn’t get to Saturday.
We will try to get to this tree and begin grooming the Sunfield in the next day or two. Depending on Monday’s thaw and rain, we hope to be in 100% good shape this week.
