Grooming Report 22 Apr

Snowing heavily up at silvercrest! Groomed the first few inches today, will follow up with more tomorrow.

All trails EXCEPT Gold Run and Quicksilver have be groomed and track set. Neihart Flyer and the outer loop got a triple-pass for skate skiing.

Looks like the “no snowmobiles” sign doesn’t do a darn thing.

Saturday/Sunday

Great classic and skate skiing Saturday… New grooming with a soft layer of powder on top. Nice mid 20’s temps. Mid winter conditions rather than spring ! New snow fall starting about noon just as the weather service predicted. Saturday evening saw heavy snow coming down and 1 to 3 inches predicted thru the night. 1 to 2 inches more for Sunday. We do not have grooming plans for Sunday. Good to see lots of familiar face’s today !

Weekend update & more… (snow)

Saturday saw an expected hard and fast base under a little powder after a warm day Friday. Things softened a little as the day warmed up later in the afternoon. Thanks to the Helena guys for coming over ! Weather alerts are predicting a big change coming this week…snow starting Monday (11th) night and going thru Wednesday. 7-12 inches predicted at the Silver Crest Trails area. We are still open for business ! Watch for grooming plans.

Nice classic tracks set. With the cooler weather and snow predicted for this weekend, the skiing should be excellent.

Weekend plans. Saturday April 9th

Reports are of a decent skating surface Thursday from Chuck. Temps predicted to be a high of 60 F Friday. We will wait till Saturday morning to do some experimental grooming as temps on Saturday will be in the mid 30’s. Sunday..29F. Monday 26F. We’ll see what mother nature will let us do.

If you have noticed… there is a nice comfort addition at the trailhead. We have added an eight foot bench to make putting on and taking off ski boots and snowshoes a lot easier and relaxing after burning up the calories. The bench was purchased by owners Doug and Theresa Ormseth at Short Grass Web Development. This is a memorial bench for an employee of theirs who skied the trails at Silvercrest and like all of us…found some solice and quiet time on the snow. We will add a plaque to the bench in the future. THANKS ! to Doug and Theresa for their thoughtful annual financial and bench donations !

Trail Conditions Saturday, April 2nd

The trails have a hard base with a little powder that fell late Saturday afternoon. We went over the skate lane once to level things out. Classic tracks are skiable for the most part with varying quality. The parking lot is drying out some what but still muddy as it warms up during the day.

Grooming report 31 March

All trails are groomed, some are track-set. It took three passes to eliminate all the old, criss-crossing classic tracks. There wasn’t enough time or sunshine (to soften the snow) to set track everywhere. Nice, flat surface, tho.

And the bunny rabbits are leaving their snack-wrappers all over. Must be spring, when they get a yen for green.
