Washburn and Nose Lake have been groomed since Thursday and are ready for skiers. Washburn will be cleaned up on Sat. morning after the 2+ inches of predicted snow, and brushed again on late Saturday. Depending on the snowfall will dictate if Nose Lake will be tore up and re-tracked on Saturday. As for Cassian it took longer that planned to compact all the new snow. We are letting it sit and firm up some more, and we will be grooming it on Saturday morning.
We’re getting closer to having all three trails up and running. Washburn was completed this afternoon. It will need a little touch tomorrow after tonights snow. The only section that we didn’t groom was the Landfill loop. Drifts are highs and will need special attention to get through. Nose Lake was rolled today and even with tonight’s snow, will be tracked tomorrow. Cassian is still scheduled to be groomed on Thursday. It was packed today, and will need a little more attention tomorrow, before grooming on Thursday morning.
Washburn was packed again this morning. Portions of the trail still need to be rolled, while other segments are ready for grooming. This will be taken care of tomorrow. The landfill loop will be closed until at which time we can even get a sled through it. Cassian will be packed tomorrow, and will probably be ready by the end of Thursday. Nose Lake was compacted on Sunday, but is in need of more, along with being rolled. Would have been completed today, but didn’t plan on getting stuck in my driveway. So tomorrow is the day for final rolling. Tracks then will be set on Wednesday morning.
Another 12″ fell last night. It will take us a day or two to get the trails up and running. If our groomers can get out of their own driveways today, they are going try and begin packing at Washburn and Nose Lake. If not we will start packing tomorrow. Please be patient. We should have some good skiing conditions once things settle down. We will post again as soon as any of the trails are ready.
5+ inches of new snow arrived today. Washburn was rolled tonight, and will be groomed tomorrow. Cassian is bing rolled tomorrow, and will be groomed on Friday. Nose Lake will be rolled tomorrow, and possibly groomed. If not tomorrow, by Friday it will be groomed.
This morning the groomers refreshed the skate deck, but didn’t touch any of the classic tracks. Classic tracks will be redone after the next snowfall on Wed. In all likelihood we will be doing the same thing on Cassian, but on Thursday or Friday.
We finally did it. All three trails as of tomorrow morning will be ready to go. Washburn had the final touches done to it today. All new tracks were completed today, along with the skate deck. Nose Lake had new tracks set today , as well. Cassian got its final roll this morning, and we will be setting tracks tomorrow morning. For the weekend, Washburn will have its skate deck cleaned up on Sat. morning, and again either late Sat. , or early Sunday. Go out and take advantage of the 15+ inches we received.
In case you haven’t noticed but we’ gotten somewhere in the neighborhood of 15″ of new snow. We are working as quickly as possble to get all three trail systems up and running…….please be patient. Washburn and Nose Lake were both compacted and rolled today. Washburn is being rolled a second time as I speak. Depending on how much snow falls tonight will dictate if it gets rolled again tomorrow, of if we can begin grooming it. Nose Lake was compacted and rolled once today. It will be rolled again one more time early tomorrow. Grooming for Nose Lake will take place either tomorrow, or early Thursday. Cassian will get some attention tomorrow(compacting/rolling), but probably won’t get tracked until Thursday a.m.
As promised the Cassian trail was tracked today. If today’s cold temperatures held you back, tomorrow looks warmer and this trail is ready for you.
The skate deck was cleaned up today, and the tracks are in great shape.
It has finally stopped snowing, and we got about 15+ inches. All the trails are well covered, and its good ski time. Nose Lake was groomed this morning, and the tracks should be firm with the cold temperatures. Washburn was just finished around noon today. There is a fresh deck and new tracks. Caissian is being rolled and compacted as I type this. It will be skiable, and tracks will be set tomorrow morning. They should be ready by noon. Enjoy the new snow.
