Jeff returned and completed the groom, Skynet is defeated for now.
The fresh wet snow at Eagle Beach was rolled and packed Sunday afternoon. The few skiers that made it out there had a good day.
Word to the wise: it is always better conditions at EB than what you see out you front window. It’s colder and drier there. Rain and wind in the Valley is usually light mist and brighter light out the road.
There is currently no classic track set (this groomer ran out of time..), but skate was wet-snow good and coverage is good too.
It was snowing at Eaglecrest all day today. The lower loop has excellent coverage everywhere. The trail was packed but no classic track set. The groomers will look at it tonight and attempt to groom and track set the full loop. If we survive this short wet stretch of weather we should be in good shape for the end of the week.
Groomed for skate conditions are good.
6 inches of snow last night. Rain at present.
Jeff W. wasn’t able to complete the groom this am, due to a mechanical overheating condition. Like the terminator, he will be back.
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.
