22 Jan 1/22/18 Girdwood valley Got 4″ light cold snow! Please exercise caution!

I skied the 5K loop today on @4' new snow. Mostly ice trailbed but portions are a rock base. Currently not enough snow to pack but snow is  the forecast. The new snow skied pretty well with a few rock hits.  the 1 and 4K loops are skiable but VERY THIN. Currently I would recommend classic skis to pack what little snow we do have down rather than lunge into it with every skate stroke. Also skiing Corkscrew Hill should be undertaken by only the boldest of advanced skiers. Any edging pushes snow aside and leaves glare ice. We hope to pack as soon as we get enough snow.  Don't give up and do your snow dance.  Have fun and be safe. Peter Z...

02 Jan 5 K loop is back to snow/rock mix.

1/2/18 PM Please use caution on first loop. ( 1 K loop) return trail is showing rocks and is only for Bold skiers who are OK with rough and rocky trails. the upper loops are also showing rocks but are slightly more skiable. Snow is currently soft and non- skiers have caused bare spots with their human and dog prints. Until snow is gone the 5 K remains a ski only  trail. Do your snow dance, Happy New Year....

After a bit of new snow, Peter rolled and put down some corduroy on the 5K Nordic Loop.  He cautions us to use our 'rock' skis since the snow pack is very thin, but it should make for a fun ski.  There's still not enough snow to groom the meadows....

The 2.8K loop at Turnagain Pass was NOT GROOMED today. At noon today, it was raining, visibility was poor and there were 15 to 20 mile per hour winds. The good news is, there's plenty of snow at Turnagain Pass so we should have plenty of spring skiing. We'll hold off grooming until the weather improves and looks like it will be good for a period of time. Stay tuned...
