Eaglecrest groomed the lower loop for skate and classic this morning, but the snow was falling so thick and fast that by noon it was almost buried. But it is still skiable. What a nice problem to have – too much snow! The new snow is a bit sticky, so Maxiglide is recommended for waxless skis and good glide wax for skate skis. Swix violet glide would have been good today. KIck wax wax touch and go, ranging from Swix blue extra (a little too slick) and Swix purple (a little too grabby). Who knows what tomorrow will bring?
Montana Creek groomed this morning, heavy snow falling at noon.
A fresh coat of groom paint was applied this evening. I drilled again at the beginning middle and end of the long straightaway on the lake and got conistent 8″, in all three holes.
Not sure if it is the “warm” temps (15 instead of 2) or the grooming or the wax, but the conditions at Montana Creek seem to be the best in years. Fast snow, super silky and soft, tremendous white wonderland, no wind, OMG!
Groomed around noon. Skate track in good shape, classic traps also good but sometimes broken up by wandering groomer!
Groomed Montana Creek today, great for classic or skate.
I checked out the lower loop this afternoon and was pleased to see they groomed it today. Looks like it is groomed for skate and classic (I was on foot and could only go a short distance due to being sick). EC staff confirmed that they ran the groomer and classic tracksetter around today. If they get more snow it will only get better. I checked out the start of the trail and also checked at the meadow – it all looks very skiable.
