Total Season Miles Groomed: 15244.2 Last 24 Hours Miles Groomed: 77.9
Trail Conditions/Notes: The majority of trails are still skiing great with today being our last chance for sunny skies until mid next week. Ski conditions will be better in the morning and early as we did not get down to freezing last night for the first time in a while. This is the last weekend of grooming for the Winthrop trails and Big Valley. Trails are thinning in sections exposed to the sun and we are losing some trails to the melt. I would recommend skiing trails that have been groomed in the last 24 hours. Enjoy it while you can as we plan to do our final groom on April 1st.

Spots filling fast for the Sunflower Marathon and Half Marathon so do not wait to register! Relay division is FULL.
