As of Tuesday afternoon, the lower loop had good conditions for classic or touring skis. There was about 3 inches of light snow over the packed track that Nate Abbott left when the the cat. No need for rock skis, just a few blueberry twigs showing here and there.
I asked about using my snowmobile to set a classic track, but the EC staff would like me to wait until we get a few more inches of snow. Hopefully we will get that snow today and tonight if the forecast pans out. In the meantime, the skier set tracks are still fun skiing and a good workout.
