Grooming reports and skier comments below. Please include new snowfall, trail conditions, downed trees or anything that will be helpful to other skiers and groomers.
There’ still snow on BH!
Arab Hill Rd
Please post trail reports including location of downed trees. Significant amounts of new snow has fallen in last few days. Enjoy back country conditions!
Please provide debris and down tree info in trail reports.
Grooming plans for XC trails remain uncertain at this time. Homestead Trail has downed trees and debris with potentially more since the big winds a few days ago and our chainsaw operator is recovering from a shoulder injury. Roads will likely be groomed and open to sleds with rest of Cherry Creek network.
Widened, packed and tracked same roads as yesterday. Lewis between Ruttenbur and Cook is sketcky but the loop is great. There’s also now room to skate. Set ok classic tracks, tracksetter needs tuning.
Approximately 18″ of snow. Rolled 4 miles of forest road- see map below. Rolled width about 6+’ and no set tracks; probably not wide enough to skate but classic skier tracks will set up nicely. Two wet spots on Lewis between Ruttenbur and Cook may not freeze over night, so miss them. Otherwise dry all around the loop and on Housington. Snowmobile trails should be closed for the weekend.
Back country skiing will be very wet underneath, and as well on our un-groomed xc trails.
Thanks Joe Bender and Jason Jordan for help braking trail.
We hit a milestone tonight: we are most of the way through this season and we have yet to be rescued!
Good coverage remains on BHSC trails with some avoidable wet spots. No report for roads, but snowmobile trails are closed.
A significant warm spell is predicted in the 6-14 day range. No grooming is planned.
