Snowfall - Dec 31, 2009

It was about 2 inches or so we're guessing. Your choice on to ride or not to ride.

12-27-09 Trail Update

The rain washed the majority of the snow away but there's a LOT of run-off and very wet conditions. We didn't get out on all the trails, but there's sure to be tree fall also with the wind that accompanied the rain all day Saturday. So watch for wet spots, run off, washed creek crossings (maybe - not sure, but possible), and downed trees. Enjoy the day!

Snow. Snow. Snow. Ski. Ski. Ski.

It's beautiful! The trails are open for skiing. We had about 8 inches which should put down a real nice base for back country skiing. The best skiing location is Lukes Trail on the top of the mountain. The snowmobilers usually have it packed nicely and from Lukes you can get to the rest of the trail system to check things out. Rick and I usually run out of gas by the time we do Lukes and Rim to the hang glider launch, so we end up heading back the same way we came. That's about a 3 hour tour on back country skis. If you are skating (yes, you can skate on Lukes and Rim because the snowmobiles groom things fairly nicely for skating), stay on the areas where the snowmobiles keep it packed. Have fun!
