We received about 2-3 inches of fluffy snow today. Lots of people out on the trails. Tracks were reset and should be firmer than they were. Was able to dig up some of the older snow with our new, marvelous, fabulous, fantastic, outstanding Ginzu groomer and incorporate into the new snow. When I left, the track at the trailhead was already setup and pretty hard. Should be fabulous conditions tomorrow.
Enterprise Primitive Trail Report……All highland trails were groomed today. It looks like a silky white ribbon through the forest. All trails thru the swamp have been snowshoed in. A few of the swamp trails were ridden in with the snowmobile, but we need more cold weather to firm up the water. Lower the pressure in your tires, bring your snowshoes, and snowshoe the big swamp some more.
You can ride 4 miles out then back. Or go backwards for a 2 mile ride then back.
Special thanks to Brian Hegge, Scott Glomski, Dave Daniels, and Phil Newcomb for getting it done.
We have most of the trails snowshoed and compacted with the snowmobile. There are sections of water in the swamp that we cannot get the snowmobile past and therefore have not completed those loops. We are optimistic that these will freeze in the next week and the loops will be connected. Don’t be shy, get out and snowshoe the trails to help pack them down. Especially with the snow projected for tomorrow, Thursday.
The whole trail was groomed tonight and tracks set. North of Sheep Ranch Road there are lots of leaves so waxless ski’s are highly recommended. Immediately north of the parking area on Hwy K, the tracks are shallow in the pines. Otherwise tracks are in good shape, with some sections looking great and others with shallow tracks where the deck is thinner. Really a beautiful trail to ski right now.
We are grooming the ski trails this morning and should be done by 9:00 a.m. We will attempt to set the tracks and should be able to do so based on last nights grooming at Nose Lake. The trail probably won’t be groomed again this weekend as overnight temps will not be cold enough. Enjoy it while we have it folks.
The 2-3 inches of wet snow we received today was groomed and the tracks look pretty nice. Ski early on Friday before things soften up and it will be really nice. We probably won’t be grooming anymore this weekend with the warm temps predicted. The tracks looked the best on the west side loop.
We haven’t been grooming the trails due to the warm up and excessive melting that is going on. Based on the upcoming weather forecast, we hope to groom Washburn late Friday night or very early Saturday morning if the deck freezes hard enough. If you want to ski, please go early in the morning when the deck isn’t so soft and you don’t leave ruts. We all know more snow is coming and if it comes soon enough we should be able to extend the life of the decks as long as there are no big divots in the deck.
The entire trail system was groomed today. Two passes were taken on the deck to grind up the snow. Tracks were also torn up and reset. In general, tracks look nice but there are sections where the snow was chunky and the tracks are shallow. All in all, everything looks nice so get out and enjoy the snow.
All of the trails were groomed tonight. Most of the classic tracks were reset. The classic tracks on the main loop from the Washburn Lake Road parking lot and back up Herringbone Hill were not reset, but they look to be in good condition. Conditions look really good. Enjoy!
We received 4-5 inches of dry fluffy snow today. The skate deck was groomed and tracks reset this evening. Please let us know how the tracks and deck are tomorrow, Sunday as this snow was very dry and the deck isn’t real pretty. We like feedback on how well the tracks setup as well as the deck. A snow shower did occur when we were grooming so there is a half inch or so of fresh snow on the trails. Lots of people on the trails today, even with the snowfall.
