Report from Golden Eagle:
Conditions: Good to Excellent Skiing for both Classic and Freestyle
Comments: March skiing at its best! We received lots of new snow which increased the base by about 3 inches. We are grooming with double tracks to pack the snow in and with the cold temperatures the trails should set up very nice. There is some drifting happening today so we will be out re-grooming tomorrow which will put the trails in excellent shape for the weekend.
There is indeed some drifting. Our groomers reported seeing drifts alongside trails that were close to 4 feet high. Quinn did the Lake Trail between Bearskin and the Campground Loop this morning and honestly, by 3 PM this afternoon there was virtually no sign anymore that the trail had ever been groomed. Bob hopes to go out in the pisten bully again in the morning and redo trails. If you plan to ski on Thursday, be prepared for occasional spots of “back country” challenge in open areas until the winds die down.
