Campground got a refinish with the roller and comb this afternoon. The trail across the street also saw a once over.
Not groomed today to preserve the limited snow cover. The classic track is still okay. The skate lane is very firm – almost skittery in a few locations – and rocket fast.
Many thanks to the groomers for all the fresh corduroy!
Finished two trips around the tracks at 930 and no others on the trail. Snow is about as good as it gets. Violet wax was perfect for track conditions. Lower lot is now cleared and shute to the main trail from the lower lot is groomed.
Montana Creek is ready to go for a skate and classic. Conditions are good.
Groomed the skate track on the lake inner loop and campground last night (Friday evening). It should be all set up and ready to go for those early birds Saturday morn. Did multiple laps on the lake to “iron” out some of the chatter marks that have been appearing, so it should be in even better shape usual. Nice, flat and corduroyed with zero drifts! Classic tracks looked great so they were not redone on the lake inner loop. The first 1/4-1/3, going counter clockwise, of the campground classic track is in missing in places due to mechanical issues with the setter, but the rest is in good condition. CG
Eaglecrest is on it! They are grooming the upper and lower loops daily for skate and classic with the big machines. Wide smooth corduroy skate lane, nicely set classic track. Every inch of the lower loop is groomed, including some sections that have not been set for several years. Treat yourself to true nordic skiing with hills, loops, roundabouts, forest trails and open meadows. Don’t forget to buy a day ticket at the lodge, unless you already have a season pass or alpine pass add-on.
