The Battershell family owns the property formerly known as Frontier Town behind the gate above the trailhead parking lot. They have posted their property against trespass—their right as a property owner. Unfortunately, despite the fact that it is prominently posted against trespass at the trailhead, in the past week or so, somebody entered the property from the trail and was seen on security cameras wandering through the property..
Jeff Battershell has for many years taken care of plowing the parking lot at Mac Pass so that we can park in close access to the trailhead. He is under no obligation to do so, and if we had to secure that service from elsewhere, it would put a serious dent in our cash reserves. The Battershells have been a good neighbor to the ski club an d the trails.
As a result of this, we have agreed to assist the Battershells in posting no trespassing signs in a few places along the trail between the trailhead and the cabin. While I suspect that people on our listserve are not the problem here, please respect the Battershells’ private property and stick to groomed trails as you head out toward the Microwave Road.
And, if you see Jeff out there plowing the parking lot, tell him “Thanks. “
