We also support both masters and junior ski programs based on interest.

Grooming Report

  1. Phil groomed creek side, ermine race course this morning. People skiing race course need to take care as there is a moose hanging around in sage loop to upper canyon. Thanks to Phil for a significant effort!

  2. Touched up the skate lane around the race loop, creekside, and ermine. The trails are in excellent shape for ANY time of the year! Do watch out for the moose – it was hanging around the sage loop and did look a little awkward as it fumbled through the deeper snow…..41 degrees and sunny at 5:30 pm 3/28/23

  3. From Lance who groomed with the PB this morning: I groomed everything except Jack Rabbit. There is a moose on Sage Loop that came down from Upper Canyon. It looks skinny and stressed.
    Above Ermine there was 10″+
    At the base there was 3-4″
    Everything got skate and 90% got classic track too. It groomed out pretty nice. Sage got the worst grooming because I was having technical difficulties and couldn’t get the tiller spinning after stopping for the moose.
