The 2 km of the upper middle loop are well groomed and in good condition today. The well tilled skating track was frozen this morning early but it’s just softening up now at about 9 AM. Because of the lower temperatures at this altitude this might be the best skate skiing in town today especially if the day warms up. Enjoy! Fred
The 2 km of trail in the upper Meadows Loop are well groomed and after freezing overnight the tilled track is just softening this morning about 9 AM. It is well worth coming up to ski this loop today. It may be our best skate skiing in town because of the cooler temperatures at this altitude. The track is set for skate skiing only and it takes a quick walk up the Sneaky trail to get to the loop. Enjoy!
Campground groomed for the racers this am. Lake groomed near 11. Jeff White cleaned up the track after the racers were done and added another skating lane on the other side of the double diagonal track on the lake. Conditions are pretty good.
Tired of skiing the flats? The upper loop will give you the hill workout you crave. Walk (or ski) up from the parking lot to the base of Ptarmigan chair, then hike up the side of the Sneaky run – an easy 15-25 min ski/hike to just below the Black Bear chair. It was really beautiful up there today and I enjoyed classic skiing the loop despite no set classic track. Skate skiing looked nice. Skiers reported a fast firm track early in the day and softer in the afternoon.
Montana Creek was groomed this morning for both
skate and classics . Conditions are good.
The Juneau Nordic Team is racing today from 10 to about 11:15 on the lake and in the campground. Everyone is always welcome to use the trails during the races – just a heads up if you want to avoid the crowd.
The 4 wheelers were out again last night. Do not know the condition of the Lake track. Ray is grooming this morning so hopefully he can smooth it out.
