SR65 groomed to the first switchback this morning. Classic track looked good so it was left alone. Skiff of new snow at gate deepened to 2″ at the switchback.
On Thurs, 2/25/21 Deer Hollow was groomed with the big State Sno-Cat Groomer. Corduroy was laid and classic track was set on most of the XC trails.

Grooming report for Thursday night by Hammer and Havy
Festus was in sunny San Jose getting a good dose of Vitamin D so my fellow Idaho native Havy was kind enough to lend a hand last night grooming . We used Red with the ginzu and Rocky with old yeller and set classic on main and mitten. Then parked old yeller and attached ginzu to Rocky and wiped out the classic on Lower. Figured with new snow coming today, we would get a good level base for the next shift to set classic after the snow. We did re-set classic on Lower around Cullens. Re-set classic on Creek, shoveled a bare spot at bottom of lower turn, and groomed WC with both rigs. Groomed the remaining trails for skate. All the equipment was fine and no Idaho engineering was required. Left MD at 10 PM at 14 degrees.
A little windy this morning… Grooming focus will be on the 3k and 5k. The Farm is windblown before the expected storm with some drifting on the trail. A blue sky blue wax morning and winds are relatively calm closer to town. We’ll groom the farm when the wind dies down a little. Please purchase and display your trail pass while skiing. Help us remind locals, new locals and wanna be locals that the ski trails are for skiing. Basin Trails and Round Valley are wonderful locations for running your dogs, walking and riding your fat bikes. Your assistance helps keep our trails well groomed and safe. We’ll see you out on the trail today!

A balmy -3°F this morning at Spruces. Matt and Dave groomed and set track on Tuesday and we received about an inch yesterday. Skiing will be very good today and snow is expected this weekend.
Very cold this morning 3F. All trails are groomed and set but will be a bit slow early due to the cold. Firm conditions most of the day. Blue wax classic in the morning, Blue wax skate in the afternoon. Bundle up and stay warm today. Please purchase and display your pass while skiing. If we can see it, we won’t stop you to ask. Help us remind dog owners, bikers and walkers that the Basin trails and Round Valley are perfect places to go for those activities. Stay safe and ski aware!
Mountain Dell was Groomed Wednesday evening. Skate and Classic lanes were reset on the Main, Mitten, Lower to Cullen’s, Kids Cut-Off, Lollipop, Creek Loop and Boomerang. Park Road By-pass had a new skate lane created.
Skiing should be very good on the skate lanes and and good to excellent in most classic lanes sets.
Have a great day out there!
Groomed for skate to Big Mountain pass. Classic set from the gate to the first switchback. Deep ruts from snowmobile skis couldn’t be fully erased so it skis a bit grabby. Firm base with a softer inch on top makes for a good conditions overall. Very few folks had been on it when I left before sunset, so should be nice in the morning.
Main, Mitten, Lollipop, Boomerang, Creek, and Lower to Cullens groomed for skate and classic. Skate should ski well today. Classic is good in some sections. Acceptable in others.
Classic setting proved to be a challenge today! Enjoy!
