On Friday the lower Peterson Lake trail has ok coverage for rock skis. The traverse through the woods is thin. The marked trail between John Muir and Peterson is excellent as is the ski to Spaulding from John Muir. Skiing down Saturday from John Muir is good in the meadows but thin in the forests.
Midday Monday it was snain with some sticky snow. Bring your glide wax. Coverage is good.
Diagonal reset, skating groomed wide. Temps around 30f. Keeping up with the new snow ain’t easy but we are efforting it. Groomer moved the diagonal over to make room for a ‘sidewalk’.
Lower loop groomed for skate and classic as of 9:30 a.m. Excellent conditions at the moment, but light snow and wind may fill in tracks in places as the day progresses.
Cold, cold, fun. No crowds. The groomer made two passes with the ginzu to take out the tracks, then two passes with the roller and comb and extra weight, then 2 more passes with ginzu and track setter. The thinking was that by compressing the fresh crumb, and then fluffung again, an ideal surface could be achieved. Meh. Early Easter Egg Hunt.
Scott groomed the usual 4 km of the lower loop for skate and classic this morning. Conditions are excellent!
The Juneau Nordic Ski Team (JNST) would like to invite the Nordic ski community to participate in the second annual Ski for Gold – a community celebration of Nordic skiing on Sunday Feb. 17 at the lake and campground.
This is not a race. Ski for Gold is a chance for Juneau Nordic skiers to join together for a great day of skiing, as we collectively try to ski as many kilometers as possible in one day.Last year together we skied 1,476 km, this year’s goal is 2,000 km! Come help us make this happen!
We’ll have a place for your to record the number of kilometers skied along with snacks and drinks to fuel our efforts. Come ski for an hour or 2 or more anytime during the day.
