We are anticipating some  changing avalanche conditions going into the weekend with moderate snow and  winds in the forecast. This new snow will be falling on weak layers that will likely cause dangerous avalanche conditions.

Grooming Schedule 2018-19

Our Grooming is  underway at  Keeler, we need more snow before we can do Spread, Whitetail, & Pete  our  other groomed routes. With two groomers, this should improve the quality of these groomed routes.

KEELER:  Keeler has been groomed 4 times, January 10th most recent.

SPREAD CREEK: 

Whitetail is our new connecting route: 

PETE CREEK: 

The North/Beetle Creek route will no longer be groomed, but is still an open route connecting Spread & Pete Creek.
