Skier Report : Emily’s Pond Levee/Snake River Dike

Soft conditions and heavy use makes for an adventure out on the dike! While, it’s wet out there, it’s still a fun time and the classic track seems to be in decent shape. Head out early for the best conditions.


Trail Creek Report

Last Updated: 2/28

Catching Up/It Keeps Snowing!

We’re actually making significant progress at Trail Creek today even though the snow has continued to fall. The forecast does call for a bit of a reprieve over the next few days and while the snowfall today has been on the light side with only about an inch since grooming began, about 5 inches of heavy snow did fall since yesterday.

Today’s Pisten Bully grooming made double passes with fresh classic tracks on most of the trails.  The exceptions were the East Field Woods and part of the National Forest trails.  Skating lanes might have a few snowballs from the warm snow but should set up nicely and ski fast.  Classic tracks are 90% really nice although you will find a few instances of “wandering tracks” as when the edges of the deep snow were being pushed back today, sometimes the deep snow won and pushed the tiller around a bit.  You will notice quite a bit of new or renewed grooming in the close field in preparation for the collegiate competition the week after next.

As of noon the snowfall was very light, the wind calm, and the temperature a very balmy 1ºC/34ºF.

Groomer’s choice for today is a perimeter loop of all the fields.

Alta Track

Grooming Schedule: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday
Last Updated: 2/27 @ 12pm
Skate: Not Set |  Classic: Not Set
The good news is that we have a lot of snow to play in this winter. The bad news is that we lost the trail. Don’t worry, we will get it back, just need a little time and some colder temperatures. Many of our trail marking stakes were buried by this last snowfall, so we can’t see where we are going. It will take us a few days to get reacquainted with the packed trail.
You can help us by skiing around one of the loops and pulling up the snow stakes so they are visible again. Sorry for the delay, we are doing all we can to keep things groomed. Stay tuned…
