6″ of new powder….with virtually no base.
meadow is windblown w/ icy spots
North 40 trail a bit thin.
Basically survival skiing, but still fun.
Be careful out there.
Sunday January 8th
8″ of new powder squashed down into 8′ of corduroyEnjoy.But be careful!Many thin spots.CH
TOP GROOMING RE’POR MAY (yes) MAY11, 2011
six inches of new
fresh corduroy glistening
5″ New graupel/ snow
8′ of Corduroy…should actually be pretty good in the a.m.
1 1/2″ of new…just enough to resurface,
The Meadow loop may be blown in a bit
but the North Forty loop should be nice with
new classic and skating track.
Made a couple of passes around this morning with the Zamboni….much better now….
There’s always good news and bad news in a groomer’s life.
The bad news is that the Polaris has a broken steering column and will be down for a little while.
The good news is that John Kivenhoven was able to lay 12′ of corduroy down with his snowcat.
My apologies to the classic skiers, but the skating should be as good as it gets up there.
Hopefully I’ll have the snowmobile fixed by the weekend to set some tracks.
8′ of new corduroy and one set old classic tracks
snowing lightly at 5 pm……………
We’re back in business!
Nearly a foot of snow fell and it’s still snowin and blowin.
I tried grooming in whiteout conditions in the meadow…looks like inebriated route finding…
so will wait until tomorrow am (Feb 2nd) to polish the corduroy and lay the classics.
See you out there.
We got about 1-1/2″ of new snow..that’s: 3.8 cm’s for the meter heads
It’s freshly groomed for skating and classic, but still very thin coverage.
Please be careful out there…keep an eye out for rocks, sticks, sagebrush and the Coen brothers.
Best skiing is around 10 am or at sunset (4:30 or so)
Did a quick loop at the track today. It was fine… My cap is off to you Chris… Thanks… The 10″ of snow we received was packed down to 4″ but if we can get another “north side storm” soon, we’ll be in much better shape… JR
T.O.P. is officially opened.
groomed for skating… SCRATCHY but definitely skiable…there’s a price we must pay for the view!
It’s going to be soft for a while: might be set up by 4:30 …for sure in am.
I’ll lay down some classic tracks after next snowfall…too thin right now.
