Latest Grooming Information

SkiTrails.com is providing a map of which trails were last groomed, as detected by a GPS device on the grooming machine. See map image and trail list below -- click on map to expand, and refresh browser/image for updates. Or click here for a more interactive map.

IMPORTANT NOTE

Depending on conditions, the groomer sometimes needs to make several passes on each trail in order to get the snow into a skiable condition. The times shown in the table and map below are only the last pass of the groomer. Please read this letter from Ranger Steve Christensen for more information.

Colors range from blue (just groomed) to orange (2-3 days ago) to yellow (4-7 days ago).
