Lower loop fantastic . Track is set. Lower parking lot now plowed too. The groomers have greatly expanded the lower loop. I skied where I never have today in the lower meadows area that branches off from the on ramp to the lower loop from the lower parking lot. It’s now groomed for skate and track skiing. If your first time, I went around counter clockwise, and it gets steep downhill in a hurry at the start, but there are switch backs coming around the loop back to the start so it’s not much of climb. Wow. And watch out for dog walkers as this area is available for them too.

As good as it gets

Smooth firm corduroy in the skate lane and solid classic tracks. Eaglecrest groomed every inch of the lower loop including the “dog loop” and it adds up to 7.3 km. I haven’t seen it this good in . . . ever. Upper loop also looking mighty fine but classic track not very good. Skate lane looks solid. Trail expanded to include full Troy loop.
