Work Day Notes Oct 8th, 2022

Thanks to everyone who are interested in coming to the trails for a get-together and some light trail work. A review is to meet at the trailhead at 8:30 am. Weather is for a high of about 58 F. That will come late afternoon so it will be a little chilly in the morning. Mostly sunny. Things can change of course so check the weather on your own as the weekend gets closer. We will have sign-in sheets for recording your work hours so be sure to get your signature before leaving for the day.

Kaylee and Nolan Taylor have already put in 5 hours for Silver Crest Trails ! Thanks guys !

If you have a sandwich ( meat or veggie) preference please mail me at bboland79@yahoo.com with that info. We have approx. 15 people signed up so far.

See you up there !

Cheers !

Bob

No grooming for this weekend. April 29- May 1

The parking lot can’t be plowed due to technical reasons and usage has gone down. Lots of cars spinning and getting stuck last weekend. Same thing for this weekend if you go. Although, its supposed to snow 9 to 16 inches Friday !

6″ of new snow overnight. The outer loop is fully groomed for skaters and with classic track.

The parking area has not been plowed. Do yourself a favor and park at the highway, and ski in! Lots of cars got stuck.

Grooming Report 22 Apr

Snowing heavily up at silvercrest! Groomed the first few inches today, will follow up with more tomorrow.

All trails EXCEPT Gold Run and Quicksilver have be groomed and track set. Neihart Flyer and the outer loop got a triple-pass for skate skiing.

Looks like the “no snowmobiles” sign doesn’t do a darn thing.

Five to eleven inches are predicted throughout the weekend starting Friday. We are going to keep grooming and skiing. Watch for specific plans. Temps in the mid 30’s.

Saturday/Sunday

Great classic and skate skiing Saturday… New grooming with a soft layer of powder on top. Nice mid 20’s temps. Mid winter conditions rather than spring ! New snow fall starting about noon just as the weather service predicted. Saturday evening saw heavy snow coming down and 1 to 3 inches predicted thru the night. 1 to 2 inches more for Sunday. We do not have grooming plans for Sunday. Good to see lots of familiar face’s today !
