XC Ski Conditions 3/9
Forbush Corner: We still have 2-6 inches of base left. There are a few open areas, but they are not very big. Larry will work on tilling up the trails on Friday morning. The trail is very icy as of right now, but Larry thinks he can get it into shape with the Pisten Bully PB 100. We will open Friday afternoon around one to give Larry enough time to get the trails ready. Skiing looks like it is a go for the weekend! Expect spring conditions.
XC Ski Headquarters: After three days of warm temps earlier this week, we still have a base on about 95% of our our trails. The base that we do have is boiler-plate, but fortunately, when the temps finally cooled yesterday afternoon, we received an inch of new snow to blanket our base. Because of the high winds yesterday, there are also some sticks on the trails, and also because about 5% of the trails lost their base, ‘rock skis’ are recommended until our snow doctoring crew can work their magic today and tomorrow. The trails are open for classic and skate skiing today, but because our trail crew will be prioritizing clearing sticks and patching bare spots, the trails will be un-groomed in most parts today.
