December 20th Trails Update

TRAILS  CONDITIONS UPDATE

0 degrees overnight, -1 degrees at 6:30am

As of 6:30 this morning the following trails have been groomed for skate and the classic track conditions assessed:

Night Loop: Classic/Skate – Good
Cottonwood: Classic/Skate – Good
Cottonwood Loop: Classic/Skate – Good
Field Loop: Classic/Skate – Good
Busk: Classic/Skate – Fair
Euphrates: Classic- Fair, Skate – Good
Camp Busk Loop: Classic/Skate – Fair
Clearwater: Classic – Poor to Fair to 4.5km, Skate – Fair to Good

Skiers please be aware of voids in snow at intersections. Current conditions do not make for a smooth surface where the machine needs to maneuver back and forth.

The trails are developing some uneven ‘crossfall’ which will be re-structured to a flatter surface once we get some new snow and the Husky is back in service.

Kjell will put classic tracks in today where conditions permit. The snow level is expected to rise to 1200m today so we are expecting wet conditions again today. Hopefully the last day for a while!

I will provide an update on the Husky repair once the much needed part arrives!
