On Tuesday, January 22nd, 18 people from the department went to Gunnison Valley Hospital for helicopter landing zone training. The course was put on by Tri State Care Flight out of Durango. This was an excellent course which taught us how to prepare for an air lift emergency if/when we need one out of the Arrowhead area. Submitted by Kevin Stilley.

The Inn suffered a water break recently, the water company came up and started trying to locate the leak, then the fire bar went off at the Inn and the Fire Dept. arrived. The Houseman’s were not at the Inn. The problem was a fire sprinkler pipe in the kitchen, hidden in the roof, wrapped in heating tape, stopped working. Many gallons of water covered the floor. Heath said they will be closed for most likely a month to do repairs starting Monday, February 4th. They will replace the floor and the lobby carpet. Give them a call for more information if you are coming up to the Inn. The St. Patrick’s Day Party, on March 17th will be as planned.

Weather: Blowing Snow Jan. 28th and 29th. O degrees at 6:00 a.m. Drifting snow is a problem at Arrowhead and can create dangerous conditions for snowmobiles and vehicles. Be careful out there. Be prepared, even with a short trip to the parking lot, you can find yourself stuck, walking and cold. Plan your trips in and out according to weather conditions. Be informed and have a safe winter here.

The photos below are from Joana Misare’s. Her 4 foot pine tree was covered with about 10 feet of drifting snow. These photos are before and after the storm.
