Lower Loop will not be set by volunteers this week with the classic sled, due to low snow and wetness, until it snows again. Also, Eaglecrest crews are using power brush cutters to trim low growing brush on the trail, to prep it for the next snow fall!
Stoneguy rolled the campground this morning and says it is very good for skating but there is not enough to set a classic track.
5.1 km of good classic track. Soft spring-like but firm and fast! High overcast. Grill and coffee stand open. Worth the trip!!
Thanks to Jack for grooming and Betsy for measuring.
I groomed this morning for both classic and skate. No rain last night there just wet snow so surface groomed up nicely. Classic track is good and skate surface very good although the large number of skaters, walkers, runners, bikers, dogs and nordic skiers will take it’s toll by mid afternoon. Get out there and try it out early.
We have breakable crust conditions up to at least 2,000 feet, so not good backcountry skiing conditions. Need more snow!
9 am start for the grooming. Set no classic, due to lack of snow, but groomed a wide skate swath. Lake was funky, no track set. Done by 10:30.
Jack groomed nice classic trail. Snowing gently. Mostly decent skiing. Bring scraper and maxiglide if you ice up after damp spots in meadow .
Note trail is officially closed.
