As good as it gets for March skiing. Dry, fresh powder snow, temps in the teens, light winds and sunshine. New grooming on Bullhead lake trail, Double Green and Kristin’s Kutoff this Friday morning. Most of the trail system has been groomed the past three days since the snow events on Monday and Tuesday that left 8″ of fresh snow. Grooming planned tonight on Wavy Gravy and Rootin Tootin. Expect mostly dry snow skiing (mid-winterlike) today and the morning tomorrow and then forecasted warm temps should soften the snow and make for slower skiing before clooling down and getting faster again. Grooming planned for Saturday night, bringing up drier snow for fresh skiing Sunday morning. The best skiing will for sure be in the mornings as we transition to Springlike conditions unless you just like being in the woods, enjoying snow then it will be great all day!! Warm weather forecasted for an extended period of time but there is a nice base on the trails that we plan on grooming select trails as long as possible (Hoping for April 1st!!).
Trails groomed are taking shape after 7-8″ of new snow on Monday night and Tuesday. Trails being groomed for classic includeRoys Run, Sap Run, Mother Hen, Sukkerbusk, Twin Lakes, JibFly and Mother North Star. North Loup and Skaters Waltz groomed for skating. A track was set on the side on North Loup, Friday. A cold morning with temp dropping down to -30!! Skiing should be very nice, mid winterlike conditions today (Friday) and Saturday morning with warmer temps and sunny conditions forecasted. Saturday on we look to transition to springlike conditions, fast in the morning, slow in the afternoon. Grooming today on Bullhead and grooming tonight/Saturday morning on Rootin Tootin and Wavy Gravy. By Saturday morning, the entire trail system should be groomed except Island Lake and Skaters Extension.
