Cassian 2/4

This morning the trail was rolled and later new tracks were set.  The snow was pretty fluffy, so be aware there could be a soft spot or two…  Otherwise favorable skiing conditions exist.

Nose Lake 2/4

Nose Lake has new track this morning.  Keep in mind this was a fluffy snow, so there can be some soft spots in the deck.  Otherwise  favorable conditions exist.  Enjoy the cold temps, while they’re here.  They’ll be gone by March.

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.

Got 2-3 inches of snow last night.  As a result it allowed us to tear up and set  a new deck and tracks.   With falling temperatures tonight this will allow both surfaces to harden nicely.  Despite the predicted cold temps. for the weekend, some nice skiing conditions should exist.

Washburn,Cassian updates 1/29

The deck was tore up at Washburn this morning.  Due to the weekend thawing it needed a lot of work.  It was resurrected back to life.  If we get the forecasted snow on Tues./Wed. it will certainly help conditions.  The classic tracks were left alone.

Cassian had its tracks tore up today, and new tracks were set.  The snow was not in the best condition, but the new tracks are very skiable.

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.

As of early this afternoon all three trails were groomed and ready to go.  The last amount of snow to fall was somewhat dry, and is not packing the way we like it, so the deck is a little soft.  Otherwise we should have some nice skiing conditions.

Washburn,Cassian, and Nose Lake update 1/23

Well after getting 10+ inches we’re getting the trails closer to up and running again.  About 1/2 of Washburn has classic tracks along with a new skate deck.  The rest will be finished  tomorrow morning, and will be ready to go.  Both Cassian and Nose Lake were rolled again today, and are ready to be groomed tomorrow.  Cassian should be ready by noon, and Nose Lake by the early afternoon.

So far we’ve gotten between 6-8 inches, and its still falling.  All three trails were compacted and rolled late this afternoon/evening.  Depending on what falls tonight will dictate how we handle things tomorrow…roll again or groom.  Stay tuned for further information.
