GROOMING REPORTS


Trail Creek Grooming Report

Last updated: 12/17

As of 11:15 AM at Trail Creek today the temperature is -8ºC/18ºF with calm and cloudy conditions.  While no snow has yet fallen, forecasts call for light snow amounts over the next few days with totals around 4 inches.  Today’s grooming was Pisten Bully best line skate grooming on most trails.  Classic tracks were untouched and mostly pretty good although another big dump would be nice.  Skating is pretty nice where ever you go.

Groomer’s choice today is a tour through the woods.

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!
