Trail Reports & Current Weather Information

IF you are not a Club member, you may not be aware that many of the funds that support grooming the trails at Chief Joseph Pass come from grants. Grants are often based upon the number of people who ski on the trails. Verification for the number of people skiing at the pass comes from the sign-in sheets kept at the trailhead. Visitor sign-ins are extremely important and support the ability of our Club to continue receiving funds from grants.

Friday – February 27th – Grooming Report

Our volunteer groomers are reworking and smoothing the classic trails this morning and setting tracks in the appropriate places.

The multi-use trails are still good after being groomed last weekend.  Gibbons Pass and Trail Creek Road may be groomed again sometime today.

The snow on the Chief Joseph Ski Trails System is great and given the weather forecast, should remain so  through most of next week.

Saturday, February 21st- Grooming Report

All the classic trails were groomed today and, with 10” of new snow last night and early today, are in terrific shape.  Tomorrow should be perfect classic skiing.

 The multi-use trails will be groomed tomorrow (Sunday).
