Cottonwood Loop: Classic/Skate – Good

Euphrates: Classic- Fair, Skate – Good
Camp Busk Loop: Classic/Skate – Fair

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!
We have experienced warmer temperatures at elevation last night (+3 degrees Celsius ) with rain . Clearwater and the Clearwater loops were packed and groomed where possible. The conditions were not favourable for machine work over night or this morning. Grooming was aborted early as the work with the BR180 only made conditions worse.
If conditions allow for track-setting today Kjell will run the ginzu up Clearwater.
All other trails on the Apex side and Busk Euphrates have not been groomed due to the very soft now conditions.
Here’s hoping for mere snow and colder temps arrive by the weekend!
Have a great day!
