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.
Our volunteer snowmobile grooming crew was out yesterday and groomed most trails, but since then it has snowed over a foot. Be prepared to break trail today. Lost trail is in the process of fixing the Pisten Bully, and hopefully it will resume grooming soon.
Most trails were groomed this morning, and have tracks set. Trails that were groomed yesterday are firm enough for skate skiing, but some trails are still pretty soft. Great classic skiing conditions.
Grooming had to be stopped early due to rising temperatures. But many trails were groomed.
We have received word that the snowcat has been fixed and the trails are being groomed this morning. We are expecting most or all trails to be groomed today, but will post an update later when we know exactly what trails were groomed.
The snowcat that Lost Trail Powder Mountain uses to groom the cross country trails at Chief Joe is currently down for repairs. Today they took one of the snowcats that is normally used on the downhill trails over to groom the cross country trails, but this cat is 2 feet wider than the cross country cat, and will not be able to make it on to many of the trails, and can not set tracks. Currently Lost Trail is hoping to have the cross country cat fixed tomorrow, and then resume normal grooming operations.
All trails groomed today with fresh tracks set.
6 Inches of new snow overnight, with more falling all day. Most trails groomed.
Just a couple trails groomed today, as most trails were still in decent shape from last weekend, and a big storm is just starting to come in. Trails will be groomed as-needed through the weekend.
