Slide-offs force temporary closure of road to Pebble Creek Ski Area
East Green Canyon Road to the Pebble Creek Ski Area was closed temporarily on Saturday afternoon about 12:45 p.m. to clear and sand the road after some slideoffs, according to officials. The road was expected to reopen soon after sanders finished working on the road. The downhill portion of the road was considered the biggest issue, according to the Bannock County Sheriff’s Department.
There were no reported injuries in the slide-offs, according to the department.
The ski area received about 17 inches of snow Friday, according to General Manager Mike Dixon. And the ski area was at nearly its maximum capacity on Saturday afternoon, Dixon said.
