Just got down from the Mountain and the skating conditions were FAST on both the lower and upper loops. Unfortunately, a washed out track on the lower loop, and a non-existent track on the upper, made for poor classic conditions. Off piste was excellent for both. Let’s hope with the coming warm weather we can get consistent grooming on the upper loop!
I will be resetting the skating lane later this morning.
Great skate skiing with over 300
pinecones removed and classic
track reset . Conditions fast.
Eaglecrest staff says they plan to groom the upper Meadow Trail at least once a week starting this week. If we get lots of tracks on the trail they may Grimmett more often.
Lower loop has a nice hard base with some snow cat tracks showing. Thin light (old) snow cover on 80% of it. Classic groove is washed out maybe 50% or more. Light winds this morning. Get it while you can!
The tracks were really shallow. Waxless skis or a Klister binder with ice klister and topped with Toko Red worked really well. VR45 and 50 hard wax has worked for others.
No classic track set.
