The ski and snowshoe area received up to six inches of new snow over the last week. However temperatures are rising making it difficult to groom the snow we are receiving. The groomers ran today, grooming and setting track on all the inner loop trails except Loose Moose. Skateaway was groomed and track set. Skywalker was groomed and track set from the trailhead out to Eagle Run. Eagle Run was groomed and track set. On the way back in the groomers covered the first part of Elderberry out to Treetop View and Treetop View. By 11:30 Am the snow was getting so warm it was clinging to the equipment, which can overload and overheat the machines. Conditions for snowshoeing remain excellent area wide. The added fresh snow has further covered bare spot.
Snow is forecast for tomorrow followed by weather that will be too warm to groom. With rising temperatures as March progresses our opportunities to groom are few or none. Nevertheless, there is a good snowpack over the area and the ski trails have packed snow at their core. Good skiing and snowshoe conditions should persist out to the end of the month providing the opportunity for some memorable spring skis and snowshoes
