EC Upper Loop in Good Shape

The 2 km of trail in the upper Meadows Loop are well groomed and after freezing overnight the tilled track is just softening this morning about 9 AM. It is well worth coming up to ski this loop today. It may be our best skate skiing in town because of the cooler temperatures at this altitude. The track is set for skate skiing only and it takes a quick walk up the Sneaky trail to get to the loop. Enjoy!

Skate ski the upper loop hills!

Tired of skiing the flats? The upper loop will give you the hill workout you crave. Walk (or ski) up from the parking lot to the base of Ptarmigan chair, then hike up the side of the Sneaky run – an easy 15-25 min ski/hike to just below the Black Bear chair. It was really beautiful up there today and I enjoyed classic skiing the loop despite no set classic track. Skate skiing looked nice. Skiers reported a fast firm track early in the day and softer in the afternoon.
