Scott just called in from Mendenhall Campground. He was going to try to groom today, but reports that the entire loop is an ice rink. No skiing at the campground until we get more snow.
Montana creek holding on. JM recommends bare feet for the first hundred yards for the full experience. It is alternatingly, thin, soft, wet but still skiable and all fun. Well ,Like McClane says, “It doesn’t have to be fun to be fun.”
Thanks for grinding the ice, even Monday morning! — made skiing possible!
Well not much left to groom. I went around once but what was left of the slush on ice turned to just ice. Most of the entire lap is now ice. We need some snow!
Don was grooming as of 10:00 AM, Monday. Don’t be fooled by conditions at the gate, which is water covered ice, and truck tracks. The snow is holding up fine past the container where the grooming equipment is stored. Spring conditions, very skiable. Bon Apetit.
Groomers, be advised that we adjusted the Ginzu to its lowest static setting on the hitch, in order to get some bite in these low conditions.
With our recent rain and warm temperatures, most of the lower loop has melted down to muskeg, gravel, or glare ice, so we are done skiing there until we get at least 6-8 inches of fresh snow. If you walk the trail, you will want your ice cleats. OK to walk your dog on the lower loop until we get more snow, but please clean up after them. Think snow!
I will groom this morning at first light and report back after I’m done. Hope there’s enough left to come out decently.
