Silvercrest Sunday (26th)

It was another beautiful Sunday at Silvercrest Trails. It doesn’t get any better up there. A good crowd of snowshoe folks and skiers. We groomed every trail except Neihart Flyer ( still doable ) for skate and classic. Weekday skiing should be good unless we get a big snow.  We anticipate the KHGA Pisten Bully will go Thursday evening with track setting either Friday  or Saturday morning. Winter Trails days is Saturday with snowshoeing and beginners ski tours. The ski tour goes at 10:15 am if you have family/friends who are interested.  1.5 hr tour. Check out the awesome Forest Service food court in the parking lot. Jeff is usually there with the big Pisten Bully also. Then Super Bowl Sunday…what a great weekend !

Weekend Update

Due to firm base conditions and ill groomers we only set fresh track on the western trails and a bit 89er. Skating is decent and classic tracks from last weekend are still skiable.

Saturday report (18th)

It was a great day at Silvercrest. In the high teens and great skiing. Jake and Drew groomed in the a.m and got it done by 10:00. All trails classic track set. We left a few sections of 89er, Sluice Box and Mt Eureka with some powder for some nice skate skiing. Sunny and in the high 20’s predicted for Sunday.

Grooming weekend update

Friday will be great for skate skiing but we do not plan to set classic tracks until Saturday (18th) morning. A couple of inches are forcast for Friday morning. We hopefully will have the Gator and Bearkat running Sat. morning and be done by 10-11 am.  Sunday looks like great weather. Warming up into the 30’s. We are planning a first time Moonlight Ski for the first Saturday in March. Watch for more details.

Sat (11th) update

We had a great day with the clinic. Warmer than expected with a great turnout. Thanks to all the participants, coaches and SCTA board members. It snowed intermittently throughout the day. Drew took some laps with the groomer late afternoon so skiing conditions Sunday should be do-able for classic with some trails packed for skating. Cold temps are predicted this week so grooming probably won’t happen till Friday. We’ll update asap.
