Trail Creek Report

There’s a Truck Somewhere Here!

The Lollipoppers where getting pretty far out into the woods last night and were checking out Sam the Truck who’s top is now currently sitting at about the same level as the top of the snow, thanks to Coach Kathy for the great photo!

Today at Trail Creek the Pisten Bully once again ventured out into the ongoing storm.  The deep new snow is doubly challenging to deal with as the temperatures have been hovering right around freezing which causes the snow to stick instead of flowing freely.  The image below shows the track on the Pisten Bully which is not supposed to be encrusted in snow.

In spite of the challenging conditions quite a bit was groomedtoday with double passes on Woolsey Woods, Homeward/Outward Bound, Moose Loop, the close field, Homesite/Suicide, and a slightly modified Black Hole/Boiler loop.  Also the snowmobile made a pass through the East Fields if someone is looking for an adventure classic ski.

Conditions are a bit tough today but it is worth it just to see all the snow.  Many of our 5 foot tall trail markers are currently buried.

Groomer’s choice for today is classic tour through the woods.

11:00am: Stilson is done and in Ok shape. The snow today was not great for grooming but it should be skiable. I’ll be able to widen the track next time. As a reminder Game Creek cannot be groomed when avy danger is considerable or higher which can be expected tomorrow.

8:30am: The school fields and the levee are groomed. Both with be soft and both are getting covered in new snow quickly. I am heading to Stilson now and should be done around 11:00.

Made a feeble attempt to pack down the new snow tonight. Funky snow, poor visibility, buried stakes, heavy snowfall made it basically impossible to make any progress. I’ll get out there tomorrow afternoon and get at least a little of the track skiable for the TVSEF practice. Don’t expect much though. What a winter!
