Eaglecrest has been regularly grooming Lower & Upper Trails for about a week now. Upper Trails are groomed for skate and classic skiing with a snowcat. Lower Trails are groomed (rolled) with snowmachine YTS setup for skate only. We will continue to groom and improve each operating day. Partial routes. Expect staff to be off the trails by 10:00 AM each morning!
Trail is in great shape today for both
classic and skate skiing. Very good
glide on this Christmas Day.
I just returned from a ski on the Lower and Upper Loops. They are groomed for skating! The Lower Loop is not completely groomed, but they have done a great job with what they have to work with. It is firm with a bit of early-season wash-board. Pretty good skiing! About 2km of the Upper Loop is groomed, the first .50 km loop with an additional inside trail, and then a down-and-back from below Black Bear chair base to the lower end of the Hilda Loop. It is smooth, firm, wide and good skiing. It looks really promising for the coming days. Get up there!
Skate track rolled Classic still good
Hi all! I’m looking for a pair of skate skis for my partner, Kevin, who is 6′ 1″ tall and has never skate skied before. They can be old skis, as long as they’re not bricks and still have their bases attached! His shoe size is 10.5 mens, just in case someone also has boots to go along with anything.
Surprising trace snow at start of Montana and about 3/4″ depth towards end. Wet snow falling as I groomed from 8:30 – 9:30. Surface is graded flat corduroy but soft. Snow cover down to bridge is thin but covers and increasingly good the further back up the valley you ski. Well worth as outing .
Despite the rain last night in Auke Bay I am headed out to try the grooming – maybe it was all snow at Montana Ck.? Will post after returning.
