Still Skiing At Silvercrest Trails !

We set new classic tracks today (Saturday APRIL ! 17th). Except Homestake Meadow, Silverdyke and Gold Run. There are previous tracks from last week on those trails. There is also a skateable lane except the trails listed. Snow is soft but a solid base. A nice day with several skiers enjoying the sun and no wind. Weather predictions are for 3-5 inches of snow Sunday night.

We set new classic tracks and they turned out nice. Early morning they are hard but softening and very skiable mid morning. By late afternoon very soft snow. The parking lot is a variety of mud, water, hard pack and ice.

More snow at Silvercrest !

Jake and Chuck plan on grooming the trails Friday (26th) in the afternoon. They might have to pack it first with the rollers. We don’t know yet what conditions are like or how many inches of new white stuff there is. We’ll do our best to get new tracks set by Saturday morning. We’ll update asap. Check Friday night for more information. The Moonlight Ski is still a go. We won’t get started right at 7 pm ( more like 7:30 ) due to daylight savings time, so take your time getting there. We will have tour guides for snowshoe walks if desired.

Grooming update…Saturday…20th

We regroomed Saturday evening and the trails are in great shape for skate and classic skiing. Sunday… Cold in the early morning but warming to the mid 20’s late morning and low 30’s by afternoon. The trails are hard/icy in the mornings but softening late mornings/ early afternoon. A nice day Saturday for snowshoeing and skiing. A reminder to please sign in at the trailhead….the Forest Service keeps track of user numbers to keep the trails going. Thanks to everybody from Silvercrest Trails Association for your generous donations!!!! We’re going to need a bigger donor board soon.
