The UL is groomed to perfection for skate and classic. Well worth the short ski/ hike up there. Its cold and dry, but glide is good with green wax.
The Juneau Nordic Ski Team will be having a race at the campground this evening from 4:30-6:00. If you’re on the trails at this time, please give the racers right of way, and don’t forget to cheer! 😉 Anyone else is welcome to come toe the start line as well.
Skate track set as well as possible without teeth on Ginzu groomer working – frozen. Classic track looks good from yesterday. No new snow, not windy and temps in high teens.
Groomed for skate and classic this morning. No winds and not too cold, a few thin spots in the classic track to watch out for, otherwise the skiing is good.
Headed out now and should be done by 9:30. Will repost after returning home.
Eaglecrest upper loop groomed for skate and classic and in the usual perfect condition. Lower loop is now skiable with solid frozen base, no open water or muskeg and good snow on surface. I skied the full loop this morning following a skied-in classic track and it was fun touring. Look for grooming there tomorrow (Friday). Cold conditions – single digits when I left this afternoon.
Groomed this morning – great conditions
