The usual routine is planned. The KHGA groomer is going through Thursday evening so skating should be great Friday. Classic tracks planned for Saturday morning. Difficult grooming conditions made classic and skate lanes last weekend a challenge. Cold nights make for hard snow in the mornings. Hopefully we can improve this weekend. Winter Trails Days and our Moonlight ski are scheduled for March 7th !
The skate skiing is phenomenal from the Pisten bully and we have classic tracks all around. 30f Calm and sunny at Kings Hill. Come on up for fresh mountain air and exercise!
Parking lots are plowed, and there is an honest 6 feet of snow on the ground!
Jeff is going to go thru the trails Thursday (20th) evening with the Pisten Bully so they will be packed Friday morning. Great for skating….We will set classic tracks Saturday (22nd) morning.
Due to a groomer staffing shortage the trails will be untracked powder for the Monday holiday. Which is fun skiing too…
We didn’t get classic tracks set till afternoon due to deep new snow bogging down the ginzu and roller in the morning. We eventually did get everything packed and set by late afternoon. Heavy snow at times. It was snowing at the end of the day and predictions are for 1-3 in. tonight so there will be new snowfall Sunday morning. Good to see a group using the fire pit at Mt Eureka warming hut !
We do not plan on grooming mid week. New snow predictions are for 8-12 in. Tuesday thru Wednesday with not much after that. Thursday evening KHGA will go thru as usual with Saturday morning classic tracks set. Great skate skiing Fridays. If anyone has grooming or snowmobile experience and are interested in setting classic tracks mid week please contact me at 788-6565. We would like to groom more often but the drive prohibits that.
Saturday (8th) saw 7-9 in. of new snow on the trail in the morning. Jake got the trails done early. Soft for skating but nice conditions overall. More snow after 12:00 wiped out that effort with 3-4 in. by 4:00pm. Expected total of 7-9 in. of new snow by Sunday morning. Jake will groom again Sunday morning. If you are thinking of skiing Sunday, check road conditions as they were icy Saturday night.
