Yesterday eleven members of Minnehaha Academy’s Nordic Ski Team lead by their coach, Anne Rykken, worked on clearing the west end of the Banadad.. The kids on the team thought the work was great fun.-
On the westend there is about 1-2″ of snow. Not near enough snow to get onto that end of trail with equipment. However, on the east end the snow measures 3-4 inches. Four inches is almost enough, but not quite enough, to get out onto the trail and start packing. While the snowmobiles are out packing the packing crew will work on clearing the down trees remaining on the remote section of the east end just beyond the Logging camp.
GiveMn-Give to the max day -November 13A wind storm this summer dropped hundreds of trees down across the Banadad within the BWCA. We are working on clearing these trees .
While the Banadad Trail Association recently received a $5,000 grant from the US Forest Service to help pay for this work, we have to match those funds with 35% of that amount in order to access the funds. The Banadad Trail Association needs your help so we can clear the remaining 3-4 miles of Trail and get the Banadad open for skiing this winter.
We are turning to outdoor enthusiasts, skiers, and other who love the Banadad Trail and asking if you can help support this work with a donation. If you are able, please donate to the Banadad Trail at Giving to max day – November 13 - GiveMN. Thanks
