Upper Loop is skiable with classic skis

I confirmed yesterday’s report by skiing to the upper loop this morning. You can ski up the road all the way from the lodge – watch for some gravel in spots. Once you are below the Black Bear chair you can follow skier set tracks around parts of the upper loop and even back on the Troy Loop. A few slightly tricky creek crossings can be managed. It’s better than not skiing and the views are incredible. Use caution skiing down as it’s harder to see the rocks. I took my skis off in a few spots as I didn’t want to gouge my bases.
