Rolled campground again this morning. Not enough snow to set a classic track yet. Need another 6″ plus of new snow for that. Skateable conditions though and enough to start the season.
Scott is repacking the campground this afternoon. Snow is starting to set up and it’s looking better for skate skiing. Snow is sticky. Maxiglide recommended for waxless skis.
Eagle Beach has about 6-8″ of new snow as of Wednesday morning. The main parking lot has been plowed. The campground road and trails were rolled this morning. No classic track was set. The back loop is still pretty thin to ski on. We won’t be rolling the back loop until there is more snow. If we get more snow tonight we will look at setting a classic track in the morning. Enjoy the winter wonderland out there.
Mendenhall Campground rolled this morning. Hard to keep up with all the new snow. Track is very soft. Recommend classic skis.
Montana Creek bypass around land slide not completed yet. The gate is closed now. We have moved some grooming equipment in place. You can get past the landslide on skis. The slide is about 1/2 mile above the bridge.
Camp Ground will be rolled tomorrow. Should be good for skate. Note the closed gate has been changed. It is posted.
As of 3:30 PM yesterday, there was about 4 inches of snow on the lower loop. There were ski tracks, but the snow cover was definitely thin and rock ski conditions. From this morning’s Eaglecrest website report, it looks like it snowed about 3 inches more overnight, so the coverage at least on the lower loop gravel trail should be decent. Rock skis probably still a good idea. We need a few more inches of snow to start grooming, hopefully we might get that tonight.
