No picture, just a quick update.  Art Dahl and Eric Boley were on the trail today packing the new snow received over the week.  It looked like trails got at least 18″ of new snow.  Unfortunately, even after a day of packing, the new snow on the trails was too soft to run the ginzugroomer.  We’ll have equipment on the trails over the weekend so when the base firms up we’ll run the groomer.

Enjoy the soft snow on the trails and the deep powder if you go bushwhacking this weekend.

Winter storm coming!

Zeus’s Cutoff before grooming today

At 12:30 p.m. the temp was 35 degrees at the trailhead. The winds increased steadily through the afternoon as winter storm clouds stacked up. During the week the trails picked up another 3-4 inches.

Tod Tibbetts groomed all trails today in preparation for the coming storm so there will be a nice firm base when the powder arrives.

Happy trails!
