Snowshoe Trails Open around Ollie Lake, Ski Trails Not Far Behind

Boundary Country Trekking announce that there now is enough snow on the ground, 8-10 inches, around Ollie Lake for snowshoeing. The snowshoe trails are open! Snowshoers this year can travel on six and one half miles of trails in and around the Poplar Creek Guesthouse B&B and the Little Ollie Cabin.

According to Barbara Young co-owner of Boundary Country Trekking, "this year we added over a mile of new snowshoe trails. You can snowshoe the entire glacial esker ridgeline from the Little Ollie Cabin to Poplar Creek on a new short trail section completed this summer. It is a beautiful view from this ridgeline. Also new this year is a snowshoe trail connecting the Banadad with the Tall Pines Yurt. We already have enough snow to snowshoe. So plan to join us this winter and try your hand at this quiet sport."

Meanwhile, Boundary Country Trekking's staff are clearing the last few miles of the Banadad Ski Trail. They expect to complete their work by December 15 and officially open the entire Banadad for skiing. While not yet tracked the first six mile in from the eastern trailhead is clear and rated as good skiing.
