These pictures show the fresh tracks from snowmobiles that were used this past February to haul up 10 propane tanks that will be used for both cooking and warmth at The Cabin for the rest of 2022. This has been a long-term project that has been years in the making.
On behalf of the Board, I want to say thanks to our neighbors who didn’t hesitate to give us permission to cross their land via snowmobile.
Also, a big thanks to the numerous volunteers who, over the last 18 months, helped cut and mark a new two-mile snowmobile trail and figure out the logistics of such a haul.
We even had a person donate his snowmobile and backcountry riding skills to break trail up to The Cabin so we could haul the supplies and prove that we could make the concept work.
It was an awesome, successful day of bringing up critical supplies. In just four hours, our small crew used two snowmobiles to bring up enough propane and other material that would have taken four people an entire summer to haul up the trail on their backs.
We will always need help from volunteers to carry supplies up there, but this snowmobile haul gives us valuable flexibility and another key option when needed.
