As of today’s date the EVSC wishes to notify our sledding community that access to the Yard Creek Forest Service Road (FSR) from our Blue Lake trailhead is restricted to active logging during the week from Monday through to Friday.

Due to active logging and road building on this FSR there is to be no snowmobiling in this area. It is extremely difficult for these large rigs to come off of the mountain, and the potential hazards for these drivers are easily compounded when encountering snowmobilers heading in opposing directions.

There is also active logging on Eagle Pass, Queest and Owlhead at this time, so please ride with caution and be courteous to all logging traffic, who have the right of way.

Again, we encourage our sledding community to respect the closure at Blue Lake, and to remember when using FSR’s that radios are required.
