TUESDAY TRAIL REPORT

Please no boots on the ski or snowshoe trails.
6-7″ POWDER SNOW OVERNIGHT
MECCA Trails got 6-7″ new powder overnight. Groomers were out today and rolled the 21K system. The grooming plan for tomorrow is to comb the skate lane and set tracks. So HAPPY to have new snow to work with….and snow on the forecast!
Snowshoe trails are inviting.
Please wear snowshoes whether shoeing on the snowshoe trails or the ski trails (please keep off the tracks). Please do not hike the ski or snowshoe trails wearing boots.
4-5″ NEW SNOW YESTERDAY
MECCA Trails received 4-5″ of powder snow yesterday. The grooming team combed the trails today but have not yet set tracks. Skiing conditions are marginal with thin spots throughout the trail system. Snowshoe trails are open.
SNOWSHOE TRAILS OPEN FOR HIKING
Ski trails are not skiable as we need snow. The snowshoe trails from the chalet trailhead are open for hiking. You don’t need snowshoes on them now, since they need more snow too.
TRAILS CLOSED TODAY
Due to the warm weather, we’re asking skiers and snowshoers to stay off the trails today. The base is fragile and will be difficult to repair. The grooming team is planning to meet later this afternoon as temps drop below freezing….stay tuned and do a little snow dance.
VERY GOOD SKIING TODAY, CLOSED ON WEDNESDAY
The grooming team is out this morning setting tracks and renovating the skate lane. Skiing should be Very Good Today, But we’re asking skiers to stay off the trails tomorrow when temps are forecasted for 50*. We’re trying to protect the early season base from damage. Temps should cool down with the trails reopening on Thursday.
