New, slushy snow about 2 inches. Fun skiing, just not groomed at posting time (12:00) Sunday. Still very enjoyable. Fish scales or skate gear.
The 4H Sunday Recreational Nordic Ski group will be meeting and skiing at the campground today, 1:30-3 p.m.
All the cool kids are out at the Pioneer Road on N. Douglas. But the campground and the lake got the once over this morning. Classic reset in the campground and Skating compacted and rolled. By tomorrow all the cool kids will be back here. Bonus leg, the new out and back across the road was compacted and rolled.
Skate and classic tracks were set Saturday morning at Eagle Beach. Sticky, compressible snow was rolled and compacted to make a good base with good skiing.
Trail was rolled several times, then ran the Ginsu/comb. Classic track set. The conditions are soft and the scenery is spectacular.
Mendenhall Lake was rolled and classic track set.
Conditions were heavy falling snow and visiblity limited.
Lake conditions may improve once we go into the
next cooling cycle. Check in on Saturday for up dated
The Eagle Beach snow machine is fixed – at least for now – and Ranger Brad was busy rolling and track setting Friday. More grooming will continue through the weekend.
