Today's Topics: Feb. 7, 2019: Echo Loppet CANCELLED

 

Unfortunately the Saturday, February 9 Echo Loppet is cancelled due

to the forecast of sub-zero wind chill temps, high winds (gusts up to 39

mph), and heavy snow. Although the snow is welcome, we are concerned that

the forecasted "blizzard-like" conditions may create unsafe driving and ski

conditions. For all on-line registrants, we will issue you a refund for

your ticket.

   2. Echo Ridge road to be sanded this a.m. (Catherine Willard)

 

32 degrees. No new snow

 

Tonight we groomed the corduroy on the following trails: Loly Pop, 

Tootsie Roll, Lot to Lot, Nuthatch, Alley Oop, Rim trails, No Where 

To Hide, Big Critter, Windsinger, Zippidy and Chickadee

 

We left the tracks alone as they are holding up pretty well. We made 

multiple passes on the corduroy with varying results. Some areas came 

out great and others a little rough. The warm temperatures made the 

snow a little sticky.

 

Should be some good skiing this weekend
