I just looked at the headline that was showing on this page (“It’s started! Trails are groomed!”) and then I looked at the weather forecast, and I felt a little guilty. The last I was there ( Jan 20), there was skiing, but marginal. The current forecast is for heavy rain and then sunny, with temperatures reaching 50. Not so nice for cross-country skiing. Hoping to report better conditions as some point.
Razor Hone, Anderson, and White Salmon have been groomed. Our groomer did a great job with some pretty marginal materials to work with. Check out the Grooming page under Trails/Reports for details.
A nice little ski up at White Salmon – see a report on the grooming page. (But don’t get too excited – no grooming has been done yet.) Don’t forget the membership meeting tomorrow (Jan 8) where we’ll learn about avalanche safety. And if you are new around here, you can read some notes on the 4 pictures above by looking at the bottom of the main Trails/Reports page.
It’s been snowing in the mountains! The first report is in: the gate is locked and there is 4″ of snow at Razor Hone. No grooming yet, but we’re hoping that it will come soon! A few more details on the Grooming and Conditions page.
Have you thought about doing something else while waiting for snow at Razor Hone and White Salmon?
Hiking and biking jump to mind. Those with good drysuits might even be thinking about kayaking. But go outside and have fun! Club members have reported excellent skiing in Canada, so North is another option.
But we’re waiting to post a big, bright picture of skiing on our local trails. Hope to soon!
