We have groomed for skate and set the classic lane on the Upper and Lower Trails this morning. Coverage is still great! Conditions are a little soft with the mild temperatures. Enjoy the snow! Have a great week everyone!
Another Spring skiing day! Everything groomed and set. A firm track this morning making way for an afternoon of spring conditions. Wax and structure accordingly. Maybe a little breezy later but other than that SPF50 is the order of the day. Thank you for helping us stay safe and healthy by wearing your two layer/N95 masks in the shop and practicing good distancing. If you encounter walkers, dogs or bikers on the trails, please help us remind them that the Basin Trails and the Round Valley Trails are perfect locations for those activities. Stay safe and ski aware! We’ll see you outside today!
Warm and windy this morning at Solitude and that wind will affect the lake squiggles with spindrift settling into the tracks. So, excellent skiing is in the trees and the Redman Loops. Fine, cold, untransformed snow is what we’ve got. Come up and enjoy our trails.
All trails were groomed last night. Classic was reset with decent results. Skate skiing should be good. Coverage is good in most places., but watch out for the rare thin spot – we pulled out our shovels a couple times to to mitigate some offensive thin spots, but you never know if we missed something in the dark. Weather for tomorrow will be mostly sunny. Early, the track will be firm. As the day goes on, the conditions will soften with temps maxing out in the high 30’s late afternoon. Get out there and enjoy the track.
Cheers, Brock and Dan
Groomed and set track this morning. Great conditions
A solid, ice free and near perfect groom to the top of Big Mountain exists from Saturday night’s groom. To make it even more perfect by erasing rough spots from walkers, it’s currently receiving a touch up to the skate lane from the gate to the pass to make it more blissful. The classic is being reset above the first switchback.
Our season at Big Mountain is usually finished (by contract) at the end of February. Big news Big Mountain lovers; our season has been extended to the first two weeks of March! Ski on!
It is a beautiful day. Everything is groomed and wonderful. Come and ski. Remember to tell someone you love them today.

Beautiful conditions this morning at SNC. All trails groomed for classic and skating. The lake squiggles will be soft in the skate lane, and as usual, the Redmans will be the best skiing. Relax, take UTA to the Nordic Center. RODE multi-grade blue. Trust the Italians.

Groomed complete track Sunday morning, light dusting of snow over night. All loops open, including World Cup. Coverage is great…enjoy!
All trails were groomed this morning for skate and classic. Plenty of coverage up here. This spot is perfect for a workout or just getting out of the valley for a leisurely ski. Enjoy it while the conditions are good.
Gorgeous sunny cold morning! I think we are in the best conditions of the season so far. Blue wax morning, violet afternoon, fresh snow, everything groomed and set. The farm is so good right now. PLEASE purchase AND display your trail pass (or drop your money in the fee box at the Farm) Conditions should be absolutely incredible all day so get outside and play! Thank you for wearing your masks and distancing at trail heads and in the shop. Keeping each other safe is the only way we stay open. If you encounter dogs, walkers or fat bikers on the ski trails, please offer them options for that activity on the Basin Trails (across the highway from the farm for instance) or Round Valley.
If we can see your pass out on the trails, we won’t be stopping you. Pocket passes don’t count until we see them. Thank you and stay healthy!
If you missed the WCS race at the Farm yesterday, you missed a great event and a wonderful send off for Dave Hanscom as Race Director. If you see him out skiing, give him another huge THANK YOU for over 30 years as Race Director!
Light flurries this morning and about 20° F. All open trails are groomed for skating and classic. Trust the Finns- Vauhti Carrot kick wax. That’s what you need.
SR-65 was groomed Saturday night from the gate to the summit of Big Mountain for skate and classic. Still a bit western and soft from the first switchback to the summit, but Sunday should be a great day for some sliding. Pro tip: Early bird gets the worm before the Sunday billers get to it. The infamous Moab Obelisk, in ice form, has apparently found its way to SR-65. Look for it above Affleck Park. Enjoy!! – Todd & Dan O.
