Pinedale Nordic Ski Grooming Report, December 30
December 30, 2011
No significant accumulation of new snow last night (Thursday), however there was a heavy dusting this morning and it is snowing lightly as of the time of this morning report. Slightly breezy, not too bad, temperature is 25 degrees.
Old Road Trail, Lower Surveyor, Surveyor, Tree Loop, Moose Ridge, Flatline and Kelly Park all freshly groomed. Classic tracks in where possible.
Snow coverage is getting thinner due to warm days and snow settling - use extreme caution and watch for rocks. Weather forecast is for more snow on the way, so hopefully we’ll get more snow over the holiday weekend.
Dogs permitted only on the Old Road Trail, Lower Surveyor Park and Kelly Park trails. Skiers are asked to please pick up after your dog’s droppings.
County crews keep Skyline Drive road plowed to the White Pine Parking lot. No services at the lodge (White Pine is closed for the season), however there is a new Nordic Warming Hut with a vaulted restroom at the trailhead near the White Pine parking lot.
The CCC Pond trails are groomed on the paved bike/walking path.
With more snow, the Pinedale golf course will be opened for cross-country skiing and will be groomed. Watch for announcements for the opening for that area.
