Good overall conditions

No snowfall

1 general warning

3 trail warnings

Overall good late season trails. Warm daytime weather is softening the snow and letting moguls form as the day’s riding progresses. We are cutting moguls out as good as possible without carving into the hard base. Currently there are a few areas of Trail 8 where the snow is getting “Sugary” but they are flat underneath. Trail 7 South took a hit over the weekend with not being able to groom Saturday night due to warm temperatures and “balling” snow.  There is a substantial base across our system and we are just now starting to see a few icy corners and patches. In town trails are starting to get dirty with some bare spots.
The Pisten Bully is still located on the side of Trail 8 right near M-94 in Shingleton so ride with caution in that area.

Past 24 hour Grooming Operations:
Trail 8 East and West, Trail 7 North, Trail 419, Trail 422 and Wetmore Spur

Today’s Forecast: Sunny, 33 degrees and dropping, 10 to 20 mph Northwest wind.

PLEASE ride with caution, stay right and be respectful, stay on the trail and off the throttle when in the towns.


- The warm weather over the last few days have created a few icy corners on the narrower trails. Slow down, stay right and ride with caution.
