Thought I would share a post below from Paragliding Group. As we launch from Potatoe Hill, St, Johns and Middle Creek which is impacted as well. Sounds like its going to be a while. UUuughh
The status of the Ranch Fire area hasn't changed. The area remains
closed under Forest Order No. 08-18-17. The information is posted
We are in the process of defining our Hazard Tree Management project
which involves approximately 7,500 acres where hazard trees need to be
treated. This work needs to be done prior to reopening areas. The
winter weather always impacts our forest roads so that will be
something that needs to be addressed when conditions allow our
employees to evaluate areas again.
We are also exploring opportunities for volunteer events and should
have more information on that in late spring or early summer. We
understand people wanting to return to their favorite recreation areas
and we are doing everything we can to reasonably reduce risks and
reopen areas as quickly as possible.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have additional questions.
