The trails groomed up quite well this morning with the new snow (dang I should have taken a picture!) We groomed about 40 km including single track trails. Groomers will be out again in the early AM w both Pisten Bullies and 2-3 smaller groomers Taste of the Trails 12-2 ,,,looks like a great turn out. 50% off soft goods 20 % off accessories such as wax, tools etc. $100 newbie season pass on sale for next year
We saw the rain change to snow at 3 PM and it continues to snow. About an inch accumulated so far. The groomers will be back out in the AM. Looks like a great weekend for Taste of the Trails….Saturday 12-2
I am just coming back from checking the trails. It is currently raining. The trails groomed last night are very skiable, the main trails. We are open 9 -5:30 for skiing today
Just coming in from grooming, the trails are still very solid from the daily grooming with the Pisten Bullies, I groomed tonight with the Gator and 9 foot Ginzu , it worked well. We groomed about 20 km. Not sure how well iot will freeze tonight but we may take the Pisten Bully out in the early morning and groom some more….there is Rain forecast for tomorrow turning to snow. After 25 years I will do the best to make the best grooming decisions. The report will be updated at 7-9 AM Thursday morning. after I scout the conditions and look at updated forecasts. Scheduled close date is March 22 . It looks like we are closing this year with snow , but flooding from the River. March 22 is 127 days of great skiing!
Like I posted at noon on our www.abrski.com website, Great spring skiing, on the Pisten Bully power tilled corn snow. We groomed up 40 km this morning. I did a “budget groom” on 20 km of skate lanes with the Gator and 9 foot Ginzu tonight , hitting the window of opportunity for light equipment grooming so we will have some skate lanes for later in the day skaing. Both Pisten Bullies are still scheduled out in the morning. Skate skiers can expect hard and fast “budget” corduroy on 20 km at 9 AM and nice skiable corduroy at about noon, as the temps rise. Skate skiers will find about 5-10 km of softer skate lanes at 9 AM. Classic skiers will find about 15-20 km of great powertilled skiing at 9 AM and another 30-40 as the base softens on the trails groomed today. Note Single track trails will not be regroomed until the weekend of new snow. The single tracks: Hemlock, Sunset, Wolf Tracks and Otter Slide are closed , Ridge Runner and Pelty the steeper black diamonds are closed; they are not safe to ski without grooming.
