Upper loop EC on Saturday, March 23

Classic Xcd Upper Loop Saturday afternoon. Apparently had not been groomed since the 21st (?). Several “water hazards” to navigate and many pole plants went straight through the weak, soft snowpack with no bottom. And, large portions of classic track were either missing or shallow from melt. Was stopped from skiing down the backside track by a previously flooded area covered with dirt. Still, had several lengthy passages with decent snow and overall a gratifying afternoon.

Eaglecrest upper and lower loops groomed daily

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.
