Sugarloaf and Greenhorn Bean Feed has been Canceled

Well, this is incredible, but we will have to CANCEL the Bean Feed tomorrow 2/11/17 for a totally different reason than usual!  Too much weather!  Looks like it will be snowing all day, which wouldn’t be all that much fun, soooooo, we will keep you apprised of a new date and time and let’s keep hoping for MORE SNOW!  What a year!
Stay safe everyone, flooding a concern throughout most of our mountain range, remember DON’T SNOWMOBILE ALONE and remember the rules of the trail.

We’ll give you some hot grub and good company.

Call to Action for Grooming our Local Mountains

After speaking with National Forest Service Bob Frenes, he told us the Sequoia National Forest is the only one not grooming in California. He’s been doing his best removing trees but has limited access without the groomer.

Per Bob we need to light a fire under Porterville National Forest Service.

Please make a telephone call and let them know how displeased you are with a banner year of snow and no grooming. Let them know that our OHV funds need to be used to start grooming and trail safety is a major issue without grooming. Let them know the forest is a land of many uses and without grooming our recreation is being impeded. Make the call personal with any other thing you think would help.

The two folks in the Porterville are:
Karen Miller – Recreation Officer
Kevin Elliot – Forest Supervisor
559-784-1500

Please persist until you get through to Karen or Kevin. Bob mentioned Karen is very accessible by calling the above number. Kevin not so much, but demand to speak to one of them.

Member Don Brown is taking another route and he will update us soon.

Thanks for your time and lets get our trails GROOMED!!
