Groomer’s report – Saturday, 8 AM

No grooming yet. Today it is 30 degrees and snowing hard. We have only 1″ of snow on the ground. ┬áTouring is available up all the river drainage’s such as the Chiwawa River, White River, and the Little Wenatchee. ┬áCoverage near Fish Lake Snowpark is around 6-10″ of very consolidated snow. Snowmobile grooming has not started yet in that area, so some good touring and snowshoeing opportunities there. Rentals for xc skis and snowshoes are available at Plain Hardware. Steven’s Pass Nordic Center has started some grooming but is not officially open yet.

Closed for the season.

The ski and snowshoe trails are closed for the year due to multiple meltout areas.

I ask that skiers, snowshoers, or hikers not use the trails so as to protect the alfalfa fields and to respect the private property of the owners of the land.

Thanks for a great year!

Groomer’s report – Sunday 10 AM

Good morning! I did groom one last time last night setting new skate platform on the Beaver Creek Trail, with new classic tracks for nearly all of it. There are some route changes due to melt out areas so watch carefully and ski aware!

It is currently 41 degrees. The overnight low was 32 and yesterday’s high was 41. A trace of rain early today but now partly sunny!

Have fun and have a great summer!

Groomer’s Report – Saturday 7 AM

Good morning skiers! Under a high overcast it is 31 degrees. The overnight low was 28 and yesterday’s high was 42. While we did receive some rain yesterday, it was cold for most of the day and the trail held up well.

The Beaver Creek Trail was groomed late last night with fresh classic tracks and skate platform. Some substantial trail re-routes to avoid melt out areas! Follow the fresh classic tracks! Skiing should be good today with the overnight lows getting down there to firm up the groomed trail! Last day of grooming for the season. The Meadow Loop Trail and the Beaver Hill Loop Trail were not groomed.

The snowshoe trail is still flagged but much has melted out. Last day for this trail as well.

Have a great summer! Time to bike, run, hike, and SUP!

Groomer’s report – Friday 8 AM

Good wet morning! With a light rain falling it is currently 34 degrees. We have received about 1/10th of an inch of precipitation starting around 5 AM. Rain is expected to taper off around 11 AM today.

The Beaver Creek Trail was groomed late last night with fresh classic tracks and skate lane. Watch for the melt out areas and trail re-routes! Still is some good skiing out there for most of the trail system, just a few very limited rough spots.

That being said, we are very near the end of the season due to the warm weather. Grooming for Saturday is likely, but that should about do it for the year!

Groomer’s report – Thursday 7 AM

Good morning, spring skiers! Under blue skies it is 25 degrees. The overnight low was 23 and yesterday’s high was 52. We have 12″ of snow on the ground.

The Meadow Loop Trail and the Beaver Creek Trail have been groomed out with fresh classic track and skate lanes and they are looking awesome! They were groomed last night and should be very firm and fast today especially before noon, but they have been holding up very well all day.

There are a few melt out areas where I have re-routed the trail so ski aware!

Probably some of the best skating of the year right now – super fast snow!

The snowshoe trail is marked and packed out.

Due to the melt out areas, we may only be able to groom a few more days at this point.

Get some spring skiing in today!

Rob

Groomer’s report – Wednesday 8 AM

Another great day to ski! Under blue skies it is currently 22 degrees. The overnight low was 21 and yesterday’s high was 56. We currently have 13″ of snow pack.

The Beaver Creek Trail and the Meadow Loop Trail were groomed late last night for skating and will be in great shape this morning. Classic track was OK so I did not re-set that. The firmness should hold up for many hours today with the very cold night time temps. I expect that by 1 PM it will be getting soft in the sunshine, but in the trees and sheltered areas the trail showed almost no signs of getting soft yesterday!

The Peavine Railroad Snowshoe Trail is tromped out and marked.

We have a few meltout areas on the ski trails so ski aware. I am working on re-routing a few sections but not sure these will work out just yet! Still some really fun and fast skiing out there!

Groomer’s report – Tuesday 9 AM

Good morning! Another bluebird day here in Plain! It is currently 29 degrees. The overnight low was 23 and yesterday’s high was 50.

The Meadow Loop Trails and the Beaver Creek Trail were groomed late last night and they should be very nice (and fast) this morning. We are getting some areas with low snow coverage so ski aware!

The Beaver Hill Loop is not groomed at this time. If conditions allow I may try to groom it tonight.

The snowshoe trails are marked and tromped out. Snow coverage is getting low with the warm afternoons! Nearing the end of the season, sadly!

Have fun and get some skiing in while we still have it!

Good morning, spring skiers! Under blue skies it is currently 35 degrees. The overnight low was 31 and yesterday’s high was 54.

We’ve had some good skiing this last weekend, and looks like more for this week.

Grooming is underway on the Meadow Loop Trails and the Beaver Creek Trail. Should be good classic and softer skate today.

Snowshoe trail is in good shape today and should offer up some nice views of Big Jim Mountain!

Have fun out there!
