Sun 12/28 – Eaglecrest upper loop partly groomed for skate skiing!

Eaglecrest is grooming part of the upper loop for skate skiing! Walk up the road past Ptarmigan chair. You can put on your skate skis and skate up the road at the timing shack a little ways past the bottom of the Ptarmigan chair. Stay on the groomed snow on the road – the coverage is good there. Follow the groomed road up to the base of the Black Bear chair. Nate has tried to groom a skate track on limited terrain behind the BB chair and maybe has about 2 km of groomed track. A few small hazards exist, just some small brush and sticks poking through the limited snow cover, but no rocks. The creek is still open and he cannot connect the track over to the other side. It’s limited and a strenuous hill climb, but it’s a new place to ski and Eaglecrest is trying their best to give us some tracks to ski on, so please be sure to thank them!

Montana Creek Grooming

Montana Creek was Ginzu groomed today for Skate skiing. Turned
out very good I will call it **** star above the bridge. With Montana creek so
cloose to the trail there is some build up of horifrost crystals that help a great deal in adding to the skiing surface. You still have to walk past the grooming
equipiment and another 300 ft. From hear its a wonderful cruise to the end of the trail and back.
