Eaglecrest set a little .50 km loop on the upper loop (the lower portion just below Black Bear base). Its skate-only, no classic track. The road is in good shape and you can skate all the way up from the lodge. You can add a little distance by doing laps on the flatter section of the road just below the Black Bear base. They also packed out a track on the hardened portion of the lower loop. I didn’t ski there – I think it is thin but just enough for skating (no classic track yet).
Ranger Brad rolled the campground around noon. No track set yet, but snow is okay for classic on main road. Major bare spot in woods on back loop, but a short loop around the hill has adequate coverage. . Too thin for the Ginzu, so skating would be rough.
Soft and slow at the beginning but the crowds were all smiling by the end. Thanks for the grooming Ray. Both the classic and skate tracks were pretty good skiing.
