Real Groomers of SEAK Episode 7

Ever Since Scott Fischer hung up his spurs, the title of Number One Groomer has been up for grabs. John Staub made a lunge at it with a 5am start on the upper loop. Conditions conspired against him , (snow too soft), to take the title easily, but it was a yeoman’s effort. Quality control found a few tread break throughs, and some uneven work, but a few stretches of really nice corduroy and so his grade is average. He rates it good for ‘Pioneer Skiers’.

It ain’t over yet!

Went up to EC this a.m. for one last ceremonial skate ski this season and was very pleasantly surprised that the creek side of the Forest Loop and all of Guy’s Loop was totally skiable! A little bumpy and uneven, but pretty hard and fast. There was 1 patch at the bottom of one of the big hills on the forest loop I that was turning bare and gravelly, but could still ski around it. The warming around 8 gave some bite, and it was starting to get too soft by 9:20, when I left. It was 43F at 0800. f you need one last fix, now is the time! I imagine we have a few days left. The snow on the mountain looked solid, which makes the upper loop may be doable too. Anybody been up there recently? Either way, what a great season and thanks a ton to all the groomers!
