Location and Contact Information
Ski surface is a loose granular spring skiing snow that should soften to a wet granular as temps warm to the forecast highs. Base depths are substantial on all trails at 20 to 28 inches. Grooming: We plan to groom 35 km of trails today. The grooming plan will start with the Main Loop early on, followed by the Old Bear loop and the Ranch Connector. Work will focus on renovating the track before it gets too soft, continuing most of the day then moving to north facing trails like Valley Cruise in the afternoon. Snowshoe Hiking: This is a great activity for anyone wishing to get out into the woods for exercise today. There remains a huge snowpack in the woods, and all trails are covered deep. Trails are marked and mapped for your adventure. Maps, route advice and rental equipment are available at the Center. BackCountry Report: Spring has come early to the mountains, not unlike past years, and we seem to be in a warm weather pattern now. With huge base depths in the high country, it will hang on for some time yet. The surface will be spring corn snow and will ski nicely as the crust is strong enough now to stay on top. Be sure to come in to the center to sign out your route before using the wilderness trail system.
