Monday, Jan. 17

Nordic Center: This morning's temperature at 6:00am at the NC was a warm 47 degrees.  Way too warm for any grooming attempts.  However, the forecast calls for a chance of snow Tuesday night and Wednesday morning with temps trending cooler the last half of the week.  Let's see what Mother Nature has in store for us and stay tuned for more updates later this week.

West Fork:  The WF skied great and had a busy weekend after last Friday's new snow.  Stay tuned for updates when the crew plans to groom, depending on this week's weather events. 

Sunday, Jan 16:

Nordic Center grooming this morning was modified to include NearSide trails in and along the trees.  Meadows were not groomed due to lack of snow.  Skiers reported that groomed trails were "pretty darn good".  We hope to groom again Monday morning if conditions allow.  Enjoy!   Lee, Tom.

Saturday, Jan 15:

Nordic Center was groomed on the NearSide trails around the trees, but no tracks yet.   Open meadows and hill side are very thin so watch for hazards there.  Otherwise skiers reported good conditions on the areas that were groomed.  Sunday and Monday we plan to touch up the tree trails, conditions permitting.

West Fork was groomed and tracks set for 3 miles and through the campground.  3" of fresh at the gate and 4" at Basin. Next groom is scheduled for Tuesday, conditions permitting.  Monday is a full moon; moonlight skiing anyone?

Friday Jan 14

This Morning we were awakened to 1- 2" of new snow at the Nordic Center.  By mid-morning, sun was out, and temp was 32 degrees.  Although the meadows and ridge lines were all but wiped out from this week's unforgiving sun and unseasonal warm temps, we have managed to maintain adequate snow in our treed areas. With that in mind, the plan for this upcoming weekend is to attempt an abbreviated grooming effort on the Near Side to groom out our remaining snow that we have, along with our new dusting from this morning and hopefully give everyone a few more days of skiing while the snow lasts.  Stay tuned for an update Saturday morning for actual conditions.  All snow dances are greatly appreciated!
