Trail Creek Grooming Report

Last updated: 12/16

Sculptures on the Horizon!

Sometime in the last 24 hours a moderate breeze flowed down the canyon and proceeded to move a billion grains of snow, sculpting a lucent array of shapes in white across our very own close field; these shapes passing through the night were bedecked in a diamond array of frost crystals and are now sparkling in today’s brilliant sunshine, just waiting for your appreciation as you partake in your weekend Nordic outing.

While you are out sculpting your body with your Nordic skis today you will encounter at Trail Creek all trails having received fresh best line Pisten Bully skate grooming.  As of 11 AM the sun was intensely shining, the wind a mere whiff, and the temperature warming rapidly through -6ºC/21ºF.  Most classic tracks are in pretty good shape and skating, while a few grouser tracks are showing through, will be quite nice.

Groomer’s choice for today is the Old Pass Road access trail.

Alta Track

Grooming Schedule: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday
Last Updated: 12/16/2018 9:45:55
Skate: Good  |  Classic: Fair
Comments: I smoothed out the skate lane this morning and eset most of the classic track. The classic lane was in good shape for most of the southern half of the track; it had a lot of drifted snow covering it on the northern loops. The skate lane should be good; I smoothed out the tracks from yesterday. Get out there before it gets too warm and soft!


Grooming Schedule: Monday, Wednesday, Friday

Skate: Fair  |  Classic: N/A
Comments: Combed out and rolled with multiple laps should set up nicely but we could use some more snow as there is a fair amount of ruffage sticking out. Not bad for town skiing!

Last Updated: 12/16/2018 9:24:19
