Groomed at 9am. Frozen, icy classic track. Some loose granular on top of firm base for skate.
The Skate Power and Conditioning class starts at Eaglecrest this Saturday, 10-noon. Call 790-2000 ext. 211 for info and sign up. Class is suitable for anyone struggling with skate skiing!
The expanded Upper Loop was freshly groomed this morning and should be excellent packed powder for both classic and skate. Access is still skiing on left up to bottom of Sneaky, then hiking up Sneaky –just a 15 minute hike, try it! Lower Loop is packed awaiting new snow, but meanwhile is frozen hard even in the meadows, and not skiable.
Good classic track but tracks getting deep and want to grab your feet so take care going downhill. Snow condition fantastic for fish scale skiis.
Ken Leghorn called from EC and asked me to post a trail update. He reports the lower loop is an icy, rutted mess and completely unskiable. The upper loop is still groomed from Monday. The skate track is firm and maybe a bit icy in spots, but skiable. The classic track is still holding up and in good shape. Be careful hiking up and down – the ski slopes are hard and haven’t been groomed for two days.
Groomed this morning. Don T used leaf blower to get the spruce cones of the track. It is better.
Scott just called in after grooming the Mendenhall campground. He reports the skate ski conditions are fair to good, and the classic track is frozen and rough.
