skied to Auk Mountain and found a foot more snow than last weekend, wow! Possible to walk to the Muir Cabin but we skied all the way down past the big bridge on the trail.
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.
Laid fresh corduroy for skating this evening. It should set up tonight and be really good Sunday. Merry said it was excellent! I did not touch the classic track as we need more snow.
Enjoy the road or head to the Mendenhall Campground and Lake and participate with the Juneau Nordic Ski Team in meeting the 2000k in one day goal.
Groomed for classic and skate. Fresh corduroy for the skaters. Still a few rocks in the classic track
Regroomed with the ginzu in the late afternoon. Very nice for skating and a good classic track. Still a few rocks showing in the classic track.
Come on out for some Island Time – the crowds are non existent and the skiing is good. A few rocks, but nothing to freak out about – just pay attention especially in the classic tracks. The skating is fast and fun. Planning to regroom when we get some more snow.
The Pioneer Road was gorgeous Saturday with what seems like great conditions. But the snow is deceivingly thin and sharp rocks will gouge your skis so be careful especially in the tracks. Bring your old rock skis and watch out for some that will stop you in your tracks.
