Cassian Two-Way Ski Trail, March 8, 2018

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.

Nose Lake Cross Country Ski Trail, March 1, 2018

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.

Washburn, Cassian and Nose Lake Cross Country Ski Trail Update, February 28th

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.

Washburn Cross Country Ski Trails, February 3, 2018

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.

The deck was tilled tonight and looks a lot better than it was today. Most of the snowmobile grooves from the grooming this morning were removed and the ice crust has been tenderized and should be in really nice condition. The tracks have not been reset since the meltdown on Friday. Some are in okay condition while others are shallow. All of the tracks are icy. Have fun, the deck should be super fast and hopefully soft with the grooming tonight.
