This morning, all of Sourdough, including the Moser Trailhead, was groomed with the Pisten Bully. Classic tracks were set above the bridge but not below. Skiing should be excellent! Enjoy it while it lasts! The lower miles remain icey but are passable. Please use caution on the hill up to mile 1
No grooming this morning. It looks like we will get a freeze tonight and in that case, Sourdough will get groomed for weekend skiing. In the lower 4 miles the rocks are mostly covered still but much of the trail is turning into water ice, especially in the thin spots. Be very careful skiing the hills in the lower portion!!
Skiing from the Moser side however was nearly perfect (though slushy)! Coverage is excellent and there is little in the way of water ice.
Sourdough got a quick touch up with the snowmobile last night (just to the bridge) and should be excellent skiing!
We'll see what the weather brings us but we will be doing what we can to keep the skiing in Sourdough going as long as we can.
Last night we groomed all of Sourdough (including the Moser Trailhead) with the Pisten Bully. Classic tracks start at mile 1 and conditions should be excellent! Enjoy it while it lasts!
The Forest Service also groomed all of the Hyalite trails for classic skiing on Monday and should be great skiing as well! The County plowed the Hyalite road as well.
In town still has skiing (an inch of snow on water ice) but there is not enough coverage to justify grooming.
Thanks to some surprise snow, we are back to winter!
Sourdough got 2 roller passes to the bridge and back. There was a lot of new snow on a very icey surface and it took some work to get the snowmobile through it. Skiing will be on the soft side but the second roller pass appeared to make a dramatic difference and skate conditions should be good all things considered. As of now, the plan is to come back tonight with the Pisten Bully and get things shaped up.
Currently no grooming in town, we will likely do some work tonight to pack in the inch or so we got around town.
Yesterday morning, Eric had good results grooming between the Sourdough trailhead and the bridge. There wasnt any grooming this morning and the Sourdough end will be icey for the morning, use extreme caution!!
Softer skiing will be found by going to the Moser trailhead; the trail there softens much faster as it is not in a canyon bottom.
In town grooming is likely done unless we get more snow soon, so we will probably ove the Pisten Bully over to sourdough in the near future to keep grinding that ice up. That being said, the snow left on our in town trails should be decent crust cruising!
