What a difference a year makes! This year the snow is already setting up nicely in the LIttle Belts unlike last year that never really produced too much white stuff in this area. In fact, the snow was powdery on top but with a good base developing below, so that when we did have to break trail, it wasn’t too bad. And part of the trail had been broken already and some of it by elk.
There was at least an inch of new snow overnight, and the base continues firm. The outer loop (D), Silverdike (B), Sluicebox (C) and Neihart Flyer (E) all got groomed and track-set. The snow remarkably good. Bring a variety of waxes to get you through the changing conditions throughout the day. Happy skiing.
There’s still a firm base, but the edges of the trails are starting to get thin. Tracks have been set, but they only “took” in certain areas. Plenty of room to skate ski. All trails except for Wu Tang have been groomed.
The trails are still nice and firm, and mid-day grooming allowed for track-setting. The outer loop, Silverdike (B trail), Sluice Box (C trail) and Wu Tang are groomed and track-set. Wu Tang has very thin spots. Jeff reports that he isn’t grooming any trails until it gets colder.
An Abominable SnowShoeMan was spotted on the intersection of the B trail with a snowshoe trail. He has hair and a smile, and has a friendly wave. Say hello to him!
It is still cool enough at night to harden up the trails. The “knives” on our ginzu groomer are able to loosen it for the classic track. Should be pretty fast! All trails are groomed and track-set for your weekend enjoyment.
Foxes like classic track!
On Tuesday there was a fair amount of snow/sleet and warm temps. Today it is warm and sunny, and all the trails have been groomed and track-set for your mid-week skiing pleasure
There has been a lot of snow in the past few days. This morning the temperature shot up to above freezing, so the latest snow got pretty heavy. Nevertheless, the next generation of skiers are out exploring! All the trails are groomed and track-set. Bring your purple wax if you have it.
