Grooming report 14 Jan 2022

All trails except Gold Run have been groomed and track-set. There are tracks on both sides of WuTang and Silverdyke. All the rest have trackset only on one side.

Some of the trails were re-groomed, so perhaps more have tracks on both sides! Great weekend for exploring and finding a new favorite way to ski.

A moose or big ol elk is sauntering around Mt. Eureka.

Thanks to everyone !

Silver Crest Trails Assoc. put on our Learn to Ski Clinic last weekend. We didn’t do it last year due to Covid. We had a great turn out.. approx. forty to fifty funhogs showing up ! Weather conditions were sunny, calm winds and 20F most of the day. ( -6 in G.F.). We had three sessions that lasted about two hours each, which is a great time frame to get muscle memory neurons firing to teach your body balance and coordination. Fun to watch the first-time-on-snow girls from South Carolina go from fears and tears at the start to having fun at the end….the ladies from Harvard out for some recreation….and the Bad Boys Birthday Club showing up to party down. THANKS TO … Chris Leatham at Big Horn Outdoor Specialists for the use of his ski gear for everyone. All the SCTA board members who came out to coach assist ( Sarah,Chuck, Gerry, Colin, Mike, Camille, Fenn), bartend ( Mary, Laura) and groom trails ( Gary Ritter, Jasmine Krotov). Recognition to Kyle Marvinney at Cross Cut Nordic Center in Bozeman for his willingness to drive to our trails to share his knowledge of the sport. Most of all you skiers who came up that makes it all possible and a special thanks to everyone who left a donation to help groom and maintain your trails. Cheers !

Updates at Silvercrest.. Jan 9th

Classic tracks set Saturday morning for all trails. They still looked good for Sunday. Skate lane was set also Saturday but somewhat rough. Regroomed Quick Silver, Sluice Box, Mt Eureka and Neihart Flyer for skating Sunday evening. That side of the trails looks good for skate skiing. The wind is blowing so conditions will deteriorate thru the week.

Weekend Grooming Plans

Cold for Friday ( Dec 31st) -3 F for a high. We will try for a Saturday morning grooming plan but blowing snow predictions could make road conditions tough. High of 12 F for Saturday. Sunday temps in the mid 20’s. Will post plans as they develop. A big thank you to SCTA board member Gary Ritter for cutting out the four trees on Gold Run!
