It was great to finally wake up to snow on the ground this morning. Eaglecrest is reporting 3 inches of snow overnight at the lodge as of 9:30 this morning. This snow is pretty light, and there was no snow on the lower loop prior to this snowfall, so it is probably going to take at least 8 inches to pack into a decent base for skiing and setting a classic track. I took one of the Nordic club grooming snowmobiles up to Eaglecrest yesterday, and will set a classic track as soon as there is enough snow. Thanks to Del Carnes and his helper for getting the Skandic ready to go.
I will go up this afternoon to take a look, but it is iffy whether we we will have enough snow to groom the lower loop before dark. If you have rock skis you can always give it a go.
The good news is that there is more snow in the forecast for Tuesday.
