The Pisten Bully will go through Friday night to pack it down. We will lay down classic tracks Saturday morning.
Potential for 1-2 feet of fresh snow between Thursday and Sunday on Kings Hill.
Silvercrest is organizing a Moon Light Ski March 7th at 7 p.m. Watch for info on our web-site and Facebook.
Super Bowl Sunday at Silvercrest was nice skiing and weather. Overcast but good conditions. Jake got on it early and set classic tracks and a skate lane. Thanks Jake ! The 60 mph winds did not take any trees down so the trails are clear. Of course, two hours after we finished grooming it snowed. There is close to 4 in. of new snow on the trails now with more predicted mid week. We do not plan on grooming until Thursday evening with classic tracks set Friday or Saturday. We will update asap.
We will try and set some classic tracks Sunday morning. Starting approx 0930. There could be a couple of inches of new snow in the a.m. Any trees down could throw a wrench into the plans.
All Saturday activities are canceled due to hazardous winds. Many dead snag hazard trees exist near the ski and snowshoe trails. These could blow down and kill you. Please stay off the trails during this wind event.
We will set classic tracks Sunday if conditions permit and a groomer is available.
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 !
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.
I’ll be up setting classic tracks early Friday morning. We will get the skating lane set Saturday morning. Should be another gorgeous weekend in the Little Belts.
