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.
At Washburn the skate deck was cleaned up today, and some of the classic tracks were reset.
Cassian tracks were set this morning too.
Be aware the snow is soft, especially so during mid day. Try to preserve the deck and tracks by skiing very early, or perhaps don the headlamps for an evening ski. The tempetures look to be around 40 for a couple of days this week. We will continue to groom, but the higher temperatures will certainly influence that.
Got another 5 inches of more fluffy than wet snow last night. Washburn was completely redone, new tracks and deck. If the temperatures stay low, it should set up nicely.
Nose Lake was rolled and had new tracks set this morning.
Cassian was rolled again , and will be tracked tomorrow.
Last night we received somewhere between 4-6 inches of were snow. Tomorrow evening another 4 inches is expected. So stay tuned for grooming updates.
Tonight and tomorrow morning Washburn is being groomed. The skate lanes are being worked on this evening, and Sat. morning new tracks will be put in.
Cassian will be rolled Sat. morning, and again on Sun. morning, with plans to track it, on Monday.
Nose Lake got new tracks today, and is in prime shape for some classic skiing.
Nose Lake was groomed on Wednesday. The west loop did not groom very well. Tracks will be shallow, while the east loop tracked better. Those tracks should be deeper.
Cassian was groomed Thursday. These tracks set up very nicely
The weekend looks to be unsettled, so stay tuned for our trail updates.
After the last two days of freezing rain, sleet, and snow the trails got a complete makeover this morning. The tracks were ripped up and new ones set, and as it cools this evening should firm up nicely. Along with the tracks the skates lanes were freshened, and they too will be solid.
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.
Both trails were ripped up this morning with new tracks in place. Due to the dry snow conditions neither track is in mint condition, but still will provide some good skiing conditions. Special note at Nose Lake. The west loop did not groom very well. The tracks are shallow. On the east loop, the tracks are better.
Washburn is being groomed this afternoon/evening. Stay tuned for an update.
