12/02 Friday

Less than an inch of new snow this morning.  We had a strong breeze today which moved some snow around, and brought some branches and needles onto the ski trails.  Since Tuesday, we have rolled all ski trails, except B Loop and Haunted Forest.  We have cleared fallen trees from all trails that were rolled but, we did not recheck all trails today.  So, be cautious as the wind was very strong today and there could be new fallen trees.

 

The ski trails are mostly covered with the base being various depth.  No actual grooming has taken place as we need more snow.  Good Job on the snow dance but, keep it up!

 

FYI:  Laramie High School has a race scheduled for December 9, 10(Friday, Saturday).

The recent snowfall has allowed us to begin preparations for the upcoming ski season.  We have been clearing downed trees, properly opening gates, some fencing work and some general trail maintenance.  Incidental to this, we have rolled some of the ski trails.  To be clear, this is not the beginning of any regular grooming, it is just, hopefully, the start of this season’s base.  What base that does exist is thin, uneven and lumpy.  I will communicate when conditions change and/or daily grooming begins.

We smoothed out Meadow, Upper UW, and Phil"s thru Van's this morning.  The warm weather didn't do the trails any favors.  No more work will be done on Upper UW.

We will go out again tomorrow and do what we can, with whatever is left.  This will be the last day of any further grooming, smoothing or packing of the ski trails this season.

It was good to see old friends, and meet new.  Thanks for great season and everything else.

We smoothed out Campground thru Van's, including Upper UW this morning.  Coverage was good but, very thin.  My crystal ball, which has been somewhat cloudy this year, says we will lose a lot of base in the next 2 days.  I believe we will stop any trail work for the season before the coming weekend.

We will go up again tomorrow and try to smooth out the ski trails.

Good skiing, Randy

3" of new snow overnite.  Part of Campground, Meadow, Upper UW, and Phil's thru Van's were rolled and smoothed out.  The ski trails looked great but, will be rapidly changing as the day warms up.

Good skiing, Randy

A light dusting of new snow last nite.  Part of Campground, Meadow, Upper UW, and Phil's thru Van's were smoothed out this morning.  We didn't lose as much base as anticipated from yesterday.  Constantly changing spring conditions exist.

We will go out and smooth the ski trails again tomorrow.

Good skiing, Randy

We lost a little base since yesterday.  We smoothed out the same trails as earlier this week: part of Campground, Meadow, Upper UW, Phil's thru Van's.  We are hopeful to keep this up thru the weekend.  Constantly changing, spring conditions exist.  Be safe, have fun.

We will work the same trails tomorrow.

Good skiing, Randy
