End of Grooming for the Season

West Elk 4_2_16

We did one more groom on Hwy 819, Zeus’ Cutoff and Kay’s Loop as the grooming crew pulled stakes today.  More snow this last week on top of a very firm base.  The temps today were in the low 40’s so the snow softens in the afternoon.  Lots of snow in the shadows, but the snow in the sun is quickly disappearing.

Have a great Spring ski for those that still have their skis out.  See you next season!

Trails are in great shape

West Elk Kay's loop 3-26-16

Last week the trails got around 4-6 inches of high moisture, windblown snow.  Hwy 819, Kay’s Loop and Zeus’s Cutoff were groomed today.  The surface will be hard in the morning but soften as the day gets warmer.

Eric’s Loop was snowmobile packed as the trail has gotten too narrow in spots for the groomer to be used.  This loop is still a great ski.

We will be pulling stakes off the trails on Saturday, 4/2 starting around noon.  Any skiers that want to help, pull a few stakes and put them in a pile at the side of the trail for the sled to pick up. The end of the grooming season is not the end of skiing or snowshoeing, with the base snow totally firm, going almost anywhere in the woods is possible.

Enjoy the Spring conditions!

West Elk Zeus Cutoff 3-18-16

All trails were groomed with the ginzugroomer today by Bruce Kime. Several inches of snow have fallen in the past week. Great Spring skiing. Beautiful conditions.
