The Upper loop is groomed for skate and classic. Access is via walking single file up the skiers right/looks left of sneaky right on the bamboo line on the side of the trail. Please do not try to skate ski up the trail. The upper loop is now officially open and a nordic pass, nordic add on or nordic day ticket is required.
Skied the upper loop tonight with the Juneau Nordic Ski Team and it is in beautiful condition. Skate skiing was smooth and fast. Classic track is nicely set – deep, smooth tracks. Thank you, Eaglecrest!
Decent inch of new snow, skate and classic o.k. Snow has quite a bit of humidity in it, a bit sticky.
Skated up MC this morning with several inches of fresh snow. Classic track can’t be set yet but it’s close.
Track is skate ready with everything skiable save for the backmost loop in the trees. Loops are back atop Mt. Mike as well as around it’s base. Did not set a classic track as we need just a bit more snow depth to pull that off.
Rolled for Skate. It is a little icy but not rocked turned. Classic not reset icy but gets better as you go up. Not enough snow for the Ginzu yet.
Scott just finished grooming the campground and reports that skate ski conditions are excellent. Classic track is in fair condition. It’s a little thin in places and there may be some rocks in track.
