High quality classic tracks were set by our new paid groomer after the new snow Sunday around almost the entire trail system! The should hold up well all week! We hope to have good skate skiing conditions for you this Friday!
Thanks for all the hard work this weekend Mike, Fenn, Chuck, Bob, Nolan, Drew, and Jake!
Silvercrest Trails members spent Friday and Saturday packing new snow and tree removal. Most of the trail system (not all ) has been gone over with the roller and ginzu. There are classic tracks set through most of the trails except Neihart Flyer and Homestake Meadow. Quality of the tracks varies. Skating is not recommended yet. The parking lot is plowed and in good condition. Up to 7 inches of snow is predicted for Saturday night until Sunday evening so those tracks could be gone by tomorrow. There were several people up skiing and snowshoeing today ! We do not plan on grooming Sunday (8th). Hopefully Jeff can get the KHGA Pisten Bully in asap and flatten out the trails. More snow needed !
Volunteers will be out with the equipment clearing the many downed trees from the ski trails and packing down the powder. We will continue packing and tracksetting efforts on Saturday morning and optimistically hope to have some Classic tracks set for Sunday.
Be advised! Early season conditions exist. Ski cautiously, especially down hill as stumps and rocks are lurking just beneath the snow surface.
Want to drive our cushy new machines for 2 hours before your ski? All we ask is a 1 or 2 morning per month, December – March commitment to a Saturday or Sunday day of your choosing. 2 inches or less of fresh snow, you don’t even have to groom, just go ski! How cool is that! Get in touch via this website or facebook and we will get you trained and scheduled. It will be fun, I promise.
Silver Crest needs your help! We NEED volunteer hours of trail work so that we can get grant funding! Please bring pruning loppers (long handled tree pruning shears) and leather gloves if you have them, water, and a lunch.
Extra gloves and loppers will be provided for those who need them. We will be snipping the small trees along the trails. This is vital work to keep up the good skiing. Spread the word, bring a friend or two!
