Watch out for bare booters

Friday, December 31st, 2010

I skied almost 2 hours yesterday on most of the Egypt road trails and coverage was slightly better with the inch or two of snow. On my return to the north trailhead I encountered hiking boot tracks of at least four people walking in the direction of the great trail. With the limited snow they really beat up that section of trail and only wished I came across them to give them a lecture… I’m grateful for the snow we have and looking forward to a good dumping soon. Tomorrow will go out to Winona Forest where they have 2ft of snow. Thanks for all your hard work.

Ski Xmas day at Alder Creek Gorge

Saturday, December 25th, 2010

My wife and I skied the Rim Tr., Short Cut Tr. and the Glacier Tr. today, and for the lack of snow (4″ at most), it was quite good. It should be advised that if you have a pair of “rock” skis (skis that you don’t mind dinging up a little), to use them. The Short Cut seemed to have the best cover, perhaps because it’s in a little bowl. The more open the ridge (as on the Glacier Tr.) the less the cover. The little snow that is there has firmed up in the cold temps and provides a barely sufficient base, for what has been a ludicrously meager snowfall so far.

Anyone have any reports for Jackson Hill or the Canal Tr.?

Tracks?

From viewing the webcam I see what appears to be tracks.  Any reports?
