Grooming generally happens on thursdays or fridays, and may happen on weekends if needed. We will attempt to post updates here the day grooming happens.
There is still plenty of snow on the ground, but we have concluded grooming for the season. See you next winter!
Grooming report; 5+” of snow last night. Gave me lots to work with, Trails all came out nice today. Groomed everything except Middle fork and Lower Loop, it was cool and foggy all day but no new snow. No snow predicted overnight so it should be really good tomorrow, nice weather is predicted for most of the day. That was it for grooming this year, come up and enjoy it for the last time. Pond Skim over at LT begins at 2:30. Head over after skiing for a Burger and great humor watching the crazies try and make it over the pond. Tony
Spring conditions, need to time your skiing for the rest of the season between the ice & the slop or 11:00 to 3:00.
The crust cruising in the morning is really good right now!
Groomed the multi-use trails today, will be great skiing tomorrow.
Not grooming the Chief Joe till Sat.. With the firm conditions we are going to wait till the new snow expected on Friday night falls.
This will give us some better snow to work with, other wise if I groom it tomorrow it will be frozen corduroy with 3″ of wet snow on top of it. Should be really good conditions right after its groomed on Sat. Tony
There is a leak in the propane system at the Gordon Reese Cabin. The Forest Service has completely shut down the system, so there will be no propane lights or stove the rest of this week and this weekend. They did say the solar system is working well with the warmer weather, and longer days. The Forest Service has a certified propane repairman scheduled to come out next Tuesday, March 7th. He will replace all three of the shut-off valves below the propane fixtures. He’ll have to snowmobile in from the Gibbons Pass Rd. side into the cabin, guided by USFS personnel, so don’t be surprised if you see snowmobile traffic on the trail on those days.
