Groomed for skate. Still good conditions….possibly a little better than yesterday. 40 degrees and light rain at 10 am.
I’ll groom Montana for skate from 8 – 9 this morning.
Snow surface still good and plenty thick. Skate track in nice shape and classic getting worse because we can not reset it with equipment so far away. You have to walk down from the upper meadow to the last flat place before the bridge and creek to catch our grooming. But it’s well worth it if you still wanna ski.
Will reset skate but classic equipment not available
I hit the Lake Creek (UAS) trailhead at 6 and was skiing by 7. Conditions were firm and coverage was great. I started hiking back by 9:45 and it was just starting to soften.
Groomed skate early and it was 28F there. Excellent conditions then but will warm up in this sun. Earlier is better. Still a classic track but starting to fade. All in all though plenty of snow remains there and this could last all week into the weekend.
I will post on conditions after returning from grooming this morning.
