A couple inches of new snow on top of a rock-hard base are providing some excellent conditions.
All trails South of the river, (Becker's, Penny's, Outlaw and Haul Road up to Three-mile hill were groomed on Thursday. All Trails past Three-Mile are considered done for the season, although for the most part still very ski-able.
All trails North of the river, (Moose Flats, Crow Creek, Barn Road, Race Park, Middle Fork) and the Highway were Groomed Friday Morning.
Considering the lack of snow overall, the trails are holding up well. Watch for a thin spot near the Frog Pond area on Middle Fork, as well as where the side creek crosses the trail. It was blown out last week but is fixed for now.
Warm temps all next week could put an end to regular grooming, but the snow coverage is firming up forest-wide, which will provide some excellent crust cruising.
Take advantage of these great conditions while they last!
