Skied at 1:00 today, Thursday. Once get down the first icy hill the skiing is good. Firm base with ground up granular snow atop. Skate skiing was good. The classic track is decent. Hard but not icy.
Montana Ck. was in great shape yesterday afternoon when I skated there. Classic was solid and fast. Skate was fast but not icy and had excellent layer of powder on top It should clean up nicely this morning.
Classic track is in good shape .
Will groom for skate at 12:30 hr.
Lower Meadow was excellent for skate skiing tonight. As of 7 PM. Hard base and soft micro snow layer on top. Classic grooves set well but might be hard and a bit icy overall but definitely skiable. Enjoy!
Grooming starting at 9:00 am
Conditions should be good.
Approach to trail a lot better.
Trail looked freshly groomed today when I skied beginning about 11:30 a.m. and not a single track on it. Classic was good and skate also looked nice. Not many people on the trail so far. Not as icy at the start as it was a few days ago with just a bit of fresh snow on the trail.
Eaglecrest groomed the lower loop for skate and classic today and it was very fun skiing. The track firmed up after the soft conditions of the past few days and much of the debris has cleared off of the surface. Should be good skiing for the next few days. Please remember no dogs on the track, even on days the area is closed. Use Montana Creek or backcountry trails for enjoying the snow with your pooch.
