Grooing Update, March 18, 2022

March 18, 2022 9:28 AM | Andy Quick (Administrator)

Hi all,

After looking at the long range forecast and factoring in the existing condition of the ski trails, the groomers have decided to suspend grooming for the remainder of the season.  There will be some snow events coming through in the next few days which will help to freshen up the trails, but warm temps and some rain could negate any grooming efforts, so its probably not worth it.

However, there is still some great skiing to be had and it doesn't have to be limited to the existing trails. Now that there is a great base and a firm crust, you can virtually ski anywhere there's enough snow. Just be aware of warming temperatures that will soften the crust and make your day longer and less-enjoyable. The name of the game for crust cruising is to go early and be back by the time it is too soft to hold you.

For the most part, the trails are still in good shape; The side creek is flowing across the Middle Fork trail and the frog pond is melting out, so use caution. Some tree wells are melting out on the Barn road, Haul road and other places. Other places to use caution are on the hill from race park to the highway and the bridge across Middle Fork.

Bears are starting to wake up, so bear spray is a good idea to have with you. Also, The Park Service will begin plowing the highway soon.

We will be removing trail markers and signage next week. Bridge removal will happen around the second week of April.

Enjoy the snow while it lasts!
