Treacherous access. Dust on Ice this am. Above the bridge it cleaned up nice. Classic snd skating will be soft. An attempt will be made to groom late tonight so the track can harden for Sunday.
Groomed, Friday 2-19, not much has changed, icy until before the mudslide, rocks showing before the mudslide groomers beware. snowing when I left there 10AM. Topped off the gas tank. Good skate skiing after mudslide.
I spaced it. It was groomed this morning. Pretty mushy the same as yesterdays post. Still good snow above land slide.
Montana Creek Groomed for skate skiing.
Gate to Bottom 1st hill pare pavement.
hence ice to 1.5 kilometers.
Good skiing from 1.8 kilometers to end of
trail. Watch for rocks. Ice cleats recommended.
Groomed for skate skiing.
Conditions free of ice and snow from gate
to bottom of first hill. Skiing starts after bridge.
Watch for rocks.
There is soft skate skiing conditions above the avalanche area but due to icy conditions below it is not possible to get the groomer there and back. Feels like spring.
Eaglecrest is keeping the upper loop nicely groomed for skate and classic skiing for this Presidents Day weekend. Clinics with visiting PSIA Nordic Demo Team Coach Scott McGee are a huge success. If you had a chance to spend a few hours with him today either skate or classic skiing, then you know what I mean. Tomorrow morning is your last chance to take a skate ski clinic with him while he is here. You will be glad you did!
