There is a dusting of new snow on the trail at upper Montana Creek covering the needles. And the rain has softened things a little bit so you can ski straight across those former ice patches. Skating and classic is good although slow. No rain midday Friday. Go out and get some exercise in this beautiful river valley. Check the Facebook page for a photo.
Grateful Dogs and JNSKI are hosting a Campground caca cleanup Sunday April 14 at 11:30. I know.
Both skate and classic are good despite no grooming. Go after it softens.
Problems with MC machine Transmission. Moving machine out on Tuesday. No more grooming for the season. Should be skiing for rest of week with out grooming. See you next year and have a great summer!
Awdigaan Yeèdat. That’s nice day to you in the local argot. If you know the secret to Roan Innish, you know you will have to find the empty skin of the selkie in the attic so it is no great leap from there to the bridge where the grooming starts. With Spring conditions timing is everything. Try to get there before the snow is too soft.
Ok – it is still very skiable on classic gear. The track is icy and glazed in spots, but still ok. Skating is probably the best
Must walk to last rise before the bridge where machine is parked but creepers not necessary. Track is fast early but should slow as temps rise. Track is level and hard in most places with spots of sugar snow.
Skate reset as well as possible on hard surface. At least removed most old skate tracks. Fast conditions with just one or two heavy spruce needle spots. Should last this week if groomed often.
