Conditions and grooming (February 17, 2017)

All trails are groomed with tracks except Bob's Cut Off !!!  Conditions are absolutely fantastic!!!  You have to get out there and ski over the next few days.  It does not get much better than this.  Skating will improve each day as the snow starts to transform.  

Conditions and grooming, part 2 (February 16, 2017)

All trails are packed.  No other grooming was possible due to warm and sticky snow.  The plan was to lay track and roll all trails.  That will have to wait until tomorrow. In addition, the parking lot had not been plowed as of 3:00 Thursday.


Conditions and grooming (February 16, 2017)

Grooming of trails will begin this AM. This will be a slow process due to many bent over trees. The plan is to get the training loop(Ricker's Field Loop and Perkin's Ridge Trail) opened up first but this will depend on temperature and snow conditions. We should be able to get everything opened up tomorrow for a great weekend of skiing.


Conditions and grooming (February 15, 2017)

Trails are in fantastic condition.  Everything is packed out and rolled.  No set track but skiing should be fun as new snow starts to fall.  Nothing like skiing when it is snowing.   Hopefully we will be able to set track tomorrow.


Conditions and grooming (February 14, 2017)

All trails are packed and rolled waiting for skiers and the next storm.  No track set due to more snow forecasted.  Trails are soft and flat and great for making your own track.   Get out there and enjoy the trails.


Conditions and grooming (part 2) (February 12, 2017)

The trails are all freshly tracked in duplicate and triplicate, with impeccable snow that will feel silky whether you sport fish scales or any color kick wax you fancy.  It's a classic day of epic proportions.


The big snow doesn't come for a few hours.  The major meteorological event is the tsunami of Bill Koch kids that descend at 2pm for their weekly skiing frenzy, so if you don't mind, please park across the street to minimize toddler street crossings.


Hope to see you out there.


It may take us a bit to dig out from the upcoming storm, so please be patient with our tireless grooming crew.  


Winter is here.  Game on.


Conditions and grooming (February 12, 2017)

Tracks will be set at 9:00 AM this morning if you want to get a quick ski in before the storm.  Trails are in absolute beautiful conditions.


Conditions and grooming (February 11, 2017)

Great skiing day!  Trails were groomed and tracked yesterday and with the new snow it could be a great ski.  All trails are groomed except the middle and left side of Ricker's Field.  We plan to work on that later today.


Conditions and grooming (February10, 2017)

All trails are groomed except the middle and left hand side of Ricker's Field Loop.  It was just too windy on that side to do much.  Track is set everywhere that is groomed except the Entrance Trail where we did not lay down a track.  Trails are absolutely gorgeous and ready for a moonlight ski tonight.  Winds are forecasted to die down later this afternoon.


Moonlight Ski February 10, 2017

Tomorrow night, bundle up and come out for a full moon ski around 6pm.  


Sun set and moon rise are both about 5pm, so there should be a beautiful glowing ball of light over the horizon, lighting your way as you head out.  Head lamps optional.
