The warm temps continue to erode exposed parts of the track. Lower and Creek loops have been closed. Main loop, Mitten and Lolipop skate lanes are holding up well. Expect some underlying icy spots in the morning transforming to slush by afternoon. Fresh classic track was set with mixed results. Don’t forget your sunscreen! Spring is here….
Groomed and set classic track late this afternoon. The best conditions you will find is above Elbow Fork
Thurs, 3/4/21 – After Deer Hollow, east of Cedar City, rec’d 4 to 6 in. of heavy, dense snow over Wed night into this Thurs morning, the trails (about 20 Km) were groomed with the big State Sno-Cat Groomer. Corduroy was laid and classic track was set on all of the XC trails. The snowshoe trails and the new “Easy Street” trail were groomed with the snowmobiles, roller & small YTS groomer. Off trail or “backcountry” conditions are great with about 2 to 3 ft. of settled snow with the 4 to 6 in. of new making it all new again.
Groomed all loops this morning, and set classic track. Conditions were very icy to start off, and then got warm. Track is a little icy and uneven, so be careful. Hopefully more snow soon!
East Canyon Hwy groomed for skate and classic to the top. Expect spring conditions: icy in the morning, mushy in the afternoon.
Main, Mitten, Boomerang, Creek, Lollipop and Lower to Cullen’s Cutoff groomed for skate this morning. Reset classic on Main and Lollipop with mixed results due to hard underlying conditions. Lower Lower, Wiggle Room and World Cup closed due to exposed areas. Overall coverage and skiing is still quite good, but afternoon temperatures will make the course slushy and sticky in places. Best time to ski is mid to late morning.
We have groomed for skate and set the classic lane on the Upper and Lower Trails this morning. Coverage is still full. Track kept together well last night with the cold temperatures overnight. Track will soften throughout the day with warmer temperatures inbound. Have a great weekend everyone!
Beautiful Spring Day! SPF70+ firm track am with one classic reset on the 5k and 3k. Farm coming along later with a refresh on the skate lanes. Please purchase and display your pass while skiing! So many walkers and dogs on the 5k yesterday….. Please remind folks that the ski trails are a fee area and that Round Valley is a great place for dogs and walkers. Help us keep the tracks safe for you. Be aware of the dredging detour on the 5k and ski with caution near active construction. Stay safe!
Wednesday morning (March 4th!) and the majority of the course is still open for reps. Everything was groomed for classic and skate except World Cup, Wiggle Room (closed), and the lowest segment of Lower. The classic tracks are thin in places, notably on lollipop stem, lower beyond Cullen’s cutoff, and Mitten. Skate lanes are holding up nicely as of 10:30am. Have fun out there!

Today the trails are fairly firm and turned out well this morning. Expect warmer temps this afternoon with a high of 35 degrees. I might bring some glide wax for the afternoon.
Warm and overcast morning with a hint of fresh wet snow on top. Wax and STRUCTURE! Bring your skis in and we can help make them move on conditions like this. warm all day with red maybe even yellow wax needed. Spring seems to be thundering in this week so get out there and enjoy the trails. Please purchase and display your trail pass! Yes, we’ll be out checking and yes, we saw you at the Farm yesterday… Please help us remind walkers, dog owners, fat bikers and new locals that the ski trails are for skiing. There are numerous wonderful options at Round Valley and Basin Trails for those multi-use activities. Footprints on a soft track are dangerous for skiers and no one understands the compulsion that some people have to walk right down the classic tracks… It’s a mystery to us. Stay safe and healthy!
