March 23rd Grooming Report--FIS Race 1 Week From Today!

March 23rd Grooming Report

FIS Race 1 Week From Today!

Looking at the image above of the FIS (International Ski and Snowboard Federation) Nordic racing schedule there are Nordic ski areas in Switzerland, Germany, Estonia, Turkey, Norway, Poland, Finland, and Switzerland, and then there’s little old Trail Creek for 30 March-01 April, 1 week from today!  It will be a fantastic experience to have skiers from all over the world checking out what we have to offer and while the warm weather has reduced our snow a bit, a cooler and snowy week ahead should guarantee good skiing conditions for this epic event.  Word is that volunteers are still needed, so if you’re in town and interested, check out the opportunities.

Between now and race day you should also be able to find plenty of good skiing.  If you make it out today you will discover that the Husky was out late in the day yesterday, covering most every trail.  The woods trails received a single skate/classic pass and the field trails mostly received multiple passes.  You will find quite a bit of new routing in the Close Field in preparation for the upcoming races.

Conditions have been starting very firm early in the day, softening as temps warm although the snow has stayed quite firm throughout the day considering how warm it has been lately.

Groomer’s choice is to check out some of the new grooming in the fields.
