Groomer's Report, Friday 3/17
Good morning skiers! We have a repeat of yesterday, with sunny skies and cold over night temps. Skiing was great yesterday and should be just as good today. As of 9:15 AM, the temp is 26 degrees with clear skies. Yesterday's high was 47 and the low was 18. Almost a 30 degree temperature swing! Just a reminder that we will be limiting our grooming just a bit, so be sure to check back daily.
There is fresh skate set with the PB100 on the Meadow Loop trails, BCT to Mtn. Springs, and Sprint Loop and upper Mill Hill. Tracks in the Meadow were left from yesterday and still look good. Up valley we groomed the skate lanes on the BCT between Stonewater and Swamp Creek as well as Stonewater Loop, Shotgun Meadow and Swamp Creek loop with the ginzu. We are going to try to get some fresh classic track set up valley this evening for the weekend.
Today's picture is actually yesterday's picture but conditions are so similar it could be from today. This is BCT near the Meadow Loop trail head.
TRAIL RE-ROUTE - BEAVER CREEK TRAIL AT MT. SPRINGS - Each spring the Yakima Indians plant fish in a pond just north of Hot Tub Hill. To get to the pond with their large truck they have to plow the ski trail down to dirt in that area. As horse sleigh rides are done for the year, we have permission to route the trail over the horse bridge, connecting back to the BCT just past the Hitching Post area.
TRAIL CLOSURE - SOUTH SIDE GRIZZLY MOUNTAIN - We have a growing melt out on the south side so we have decided to close that side. You can still ski to the summit viewpoint from the north side trail (original route).
Still great skiing out there, get it while it lasts!
