Summer Glading Report

Our glading team had a very busy summer of enhancing habitat of the powder rider.  Corrie ‘The Captain” Wright and “Big” Steve kloepzig are long term Island Lake ski guides and also professional habitat enhancers.   They go in every summer and selectivly thin trees and brush, thus making it safer and easier to ski and board down tree runs.  This summer they improved about 100 acres of catski terrain.  Here is a summary of the areas they worked in:
