1-14-19 6pm Found black sz Med Au Clair gloves. E-ml firstname.lastname@example.org to reconnect.
Soft snow, but beautifully groomed and very nice classic track. We found a black ski binding “bumper” on the track, in case you’re missing one. Looks like it was probably dropped this morning (Monday). Contact Betsy or Scott Fischer – scottbetsy@gci DOT net
1. Lower parking lot is not being regularly plowed. Do not park there unless you have a high clearance 4 x 4 truck. An SUV is iffy. I think a Subaru will get stuck because of low clearance. I got stuck in my car. The pull out just down the road from the lower parking lot is cleared and sanded, so either park there or park all the way up by the lodge, as the only easy access other than the lower parking lot trail was to walk down the road to the maintenance garage below the lodge and start at the little hut where the lower cross country trail starts.
2. Corn snow is good for classic. The track is set to the extreme outer edge of the groomed trail so the bigger the basket the better on your poles, else your outside pole will sink 8 inches before it finds firm ground.
3. There is a culvert out about half way on the stretch of trail that runs along the road. It’s a narrow running creek to cross but take time as if you go in the creek, I think you’ll be up to your thighs.
Scott groomed the lower loop Sunday morning for skate and classic. Firm, corn snow, good tracks.
Montana Creek and the campground got the business this morning. Soft and fast.
About 35 youth skiers and parents on the trail this afternoon. fyi.
New, slushy snow about 2 inches. Fun skiing, just not groomed at posting time (12:00) Sunday. Still very enjoyable. Fish scales or skate gear.
