December Snow

Well we’re half through December now and we have been skiing most of the month so far. It’s a little thin in some spots, and there are ice flows, however half to two thirds of our trails are open for skiing, both skating and classic. The best trails at Pincushion are currently West Overlook and Upper and Lower Snowman. Other skiable trails are North Advanced and Canyon Curves and some of the areas out on the Upper trails are almost mid-winter conditions. At my last check, only the upper trail on the Pincushion Mtn. loop had been groomed and you gotta be ware of an occasional rock on some of the small downhills.

 

 

Our High School Nordic Ski Team has spent a lot of time skiing West Overlook and Lower Snowman loops, so don’t be discouraged by the sight of the stadium area which has some grass poking through. Although that too can be skied around the edges; classic is best but I’ve seen some skate skiing on it too. After todays warmer temp’s it should cool down again and one 3-5″ snowfall will improve our ski trails quite a bit.
