29°F, 1" new snow since last grooming. Upper Alpine and part of the Spur are groomed. Classic track has been set on Upper Alpine and looks ok. Skiing is out and back from the upper parking area. There’s about 10-12k of skiing if you only do one lap. Come up and try it!

30°F, 1" new snow. We’ll be grooming the same 5k section of upper Alpine and part of the Spur from the upper parking area. We’ll try to set some classic track and see how it goes with a still thin snow pack.

35°F. Groomed upper Alpine and the Spur. No classic track set. The snow is really thin past the snow fence on the Spur. Alpine is pretty nice considering the thin snow pack. Keep dancing.

We have had some trouble updating the website for the first time this season so this is a day late. We hope the problem is solved.We started grooming yesterday (Tuesday, Dec 3). Until we get more snow we will be grooming intermittently starting at the upper parking area. Upper Alpine and the Spur are skiable but the snow is thin. Got rock skis?

34°F, a few snow flakes are in the air. The skate lane is groomed all the way around the Power Line loop. New classic track is set out to the snow fence. This is likely our last day of grooming. Thanks to all of you for your support. It’s been another great season. Watch for news about our fundraiser next fall and have a great summer.
