Good morning skiers! As of 8:45 AM the temp is 29 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. The low was 26 and yesterday's high was 44. We had some fantastic skiing yesterday morning before the temps warmed up and today should be similar. With a little luck today's cloud cover will keep it from softening. We set fresh skate on most trails. Some of the Mill Hill complex trails did not get skied yesterday and we did not re-groom them. The BCT in the Meadow up to Mtn. Springs, Mill Hill upper and some of the Meadow loops have fresh classic. Elsewhere, classic was left from yesterday.
Today's sunny picture is from BCT trail head at the Meadow Loops.
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. We were able to put a little more snow on the road crossing last night so that should be skiable today.
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!
Today's groomers were Jason, Gus, and Rob D.
