    Grooming update- 1/18/24

    Pahaska received around 3" from the last storm this week; much less than predicted but welcome nevertheless!

    We were able to get the cat down the Middle Fork trail and level it out nicely. The Highway is very good with skate and classic lanes and the Park has set track to the bottom of Sylvan Pass.

    Groomers rolled Mosse Flats, Race Park, Crow Creek and the trails south of the river to 3- mile hill. it all can be skied but its variable conditions with no set track. Be aware of any sun- exposed terrain and use your old skis!

    The Groomers will be back up Friday to prepare for a Middle school race taking place Saturday afternoon. The race will take place on the Highway and Middlefork, son please be aware of racers and give them the right of way when they inevitably pass you! ( Cheering helps too...)

    Sunday is World Snow Day! There will be classic and skate ski technique clinics, Nordic Kids lessons and a wax clinic. See you up there!

    Good Chilly Morning!

    Pahaska received around 2-2.5" of fresh snow, much less than the forecast amount, but a nice refresh for the Highway and enough snow to begin rolling some other trails.

    The ridiculously cold temperatures will firm up the fresh snow and make for really good skiing for anyone brave enough to venture out. If you go, take extra care to dress in layers and cover up exposed skin!

    Middle Fork trail was rolled and leveled. It's definitely not ready for prime time yet, but we can say its officially open. Be aware of low-snow conditions and hazards under the snow.

    It looks like we may see more snow Sunday, as well as a significant warm up for next weekend!

    See you on the trails!

    Not a lot of changes since the last report, our snow pack is fairly stable but there is some noticeable shrinking. We are lucky to not get much direct sunlight this time of year, and although daytime temps have been above freezing, the nighttime temps have been near single-digits.

    We groomed with the Cat for the first time yesterday! The cat makes a wide, level, firm skate platform and a solid, straight classic track, so while there ain't much, it ain't bad!

    There's not much on the horizon for storms until well into January, so we have to be careful to protect what we have; Please keep dogs out of the classic tracks and pickup after them, dark spots in the snow melt out faster.

    If you're walking, please do so on the snowmobile side of the road. If you have a direct line with Ullr, this would be a good time to use it!

    Merry Christmas Eve! Pahaska did not get much from this storm that made white in town, nevertheless the skiing on the highway is really good for only 4 inches of snow! We reset the track and widened out the skate lane. YNP has track set to the 3-mille turnout on Sylvan Pass, so there is plenty of skiing.

    It looks like it's going to stay like this until after the New Year, so try not to let dogs walk in the tracks or bring mud onto the trail, as dark spots can eat away the snow.

    Keep doing your snow dances and Merry Christmas!

    Hey all,

    The Groomers were able to set a nice classic track on the highway last weekend. The Park Service has since also groomed up to the outhouse on the Pass about 3 miles up. Our track and wide skate lanes are holding up well as the sun doesn't shine for long on the highway this time of year.

    I would say if you plan on skiing very far into the park, classic would be best, as the skate lane gets too narrow to be effective.

    The Blue porta-potties are in place behind the old lodge.

    The snow potential for the end of the week looks promising, but there's not a dependable forecast out yet, so keep doing your snow dances !

    Well, you're probably wondering, is there any snow at Pahaska?

    The answer is, sort of...

    Most of the trails don't have enough snow to groom yet. It was very close at least twice this fall, but rain and warm temps foiled us. However, there is enough snow on the Highway to The East Entrance! The Groomers have rolled the surface and shaved off the bumps. Reports from the ski team say its very good for skating.

    The Groomers are heading up Thursday to reset it for the weekend and hopefully will be able to set some classic track as well.

    The Porta-potties are on order, but so far they have not been delivered, so plan on bushwacking for the bathroom until then.

    We will check in with an update after the trails have been resurfaced.

    Do your snow dances!
