  • Nordic Loop Closure

    The Nordic Loop will be closed at the 4K cutoff tomorrow as we remove a few trees downed in the last storm. Impressive willawaw. We named her Irmawilla!!

  • Afternoon 5K Nordic Trail

    The 5K Nordic Loop will not be groomed again this season. Due to lack of snow and construction on the Arlberg Extension – which makes groomer and skier access to the trail extremely difficult, we are suspending grooming operations. When we get another good weather window of a week or so, we’ll groom a loop at Turnagain Pass.
