The snow at Hatcher Pass is EXCELLENT. Archangel Road was primo as were all the trails around the mines. I would say you have another week of good skiing up there. ... See MoreSee Less

Skiing on the Lakes trails was great today!! Snow pack is consolidated, firm, not as punchy for poles as it was on the weekend so either skate or classic is good (though classic track is put in "best line") Get out there, people! Shorts and tee skiing cant be beat! ... See MoreSee Less

It's to early to quit skiing. So, I
checked out the ski trails today. They look so good I groomed a set track with "best line". Trail is still firm. But wet. However, The lakes are gone. lots of water on them. Hiking trail still hard. Come and get the last skiing in for the year. :-)

It was great skiing early this afternoon around the lakes trails! Fast but not icy. A little rutted but soft enough to ski over ruts. ... See MoreSee Less

Well, Tried to groom this morning. Got some of the ruts out of the trail. but, Turning ice again. unfortunately, The ski season is coming to a quick end. Forecasting warm weather and rain. The lakes are melting the little snow that they had and also icy. Ski trails are holding up well. Just hard and icy. Will keep grooming until it gets to "punchy"
