Cabin Hoppers urge caution in Caribou Hills

The Caribou Hills Cabin Hoppers snowmachine club is reporting very dangerous conditions on trails in the Caribou Hills.

Total snowfall in the hills is between 6 and 8 inches, and all creeks and rivers still have areas of deep and wide open water. Many trees have been downed across trails, so those riders venturing out are asked to bring chainsaws with them.

Also, trails leading to the Deep Creek drainage have been washed out, and 10- to 14-foot drops have been reported.

The Caribou Hills Cabin Hoppers remind riders to use extreme caution and to ride with their heads, not their throttles.

Hospital changes meeting date

The Central Kenai Peninsula Hospital Service Area Board will not hold its monthly meeting Monday. Regularly scheduled meetings have been changed to the second Monday of each month, starting at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 13 in the Iliamna room at Central Peninsula General Hospital.
