No grooming Monday or Tuesday due to warm temperatures, trying to save what little snow we have left.  

3/16/24: Groomed lower trails, Amabilis and South Loop.  While it was a really warm day, the trails survived and they are freezing up for the early morning skiers.  Fast and firm on the lower trails but upper Amabilis will be a workout with the inversion and above freezing temperatures up top.

2/27/24: No grooming this morning

2/26/24: Groomed The Road.  With every forecast predicting a season saving amount of new cold snow we were overjoyed and optimistic.  

UNFORTUNATELY reality is the 1.5 inches of steady HEAVY rain Saturday and Sunday took its toll on the trails.  We have received barely 2 inches of fresh snow this morning and are still hopeful for more throughout the day.  Lower trails look good for classic today and we are optimistic more snow will fall to cover up the damaged areas.
