Trails near lake are still icy and dirty with pine needles from wind storm.  Trails out at Deeryard are all groomed and packed powder with a firm base.  Please see www.norpinetrails.org for detailed report.

West End. The Good News. The firm base survived the rain. The Bad News it is rock hard and the rain also added more ice to ice flows and washed snow off spots on the trails. If we can get 1ʺ of snow the trails will be ski-able.  See www.norpinetrails.org for more information.  Always to this site as it is the first place updated with trail information.

Norpine Trails are Temporarily closed

Comment: 

Closed 2/21/17 due to warm conditions.  Please refrain from using trails as you will damage the remaining base.  We will re groom when more snow is received.

Groomed up really nice even though we did not get much snow. My waxless skis seemed very fast in the cold fresh tracks.  See www.norpinetrails.org for details!

Please beware that conditions are very icy in spots.  Also, the long downhill run has a snowmobile track in it from a rescue operation performed by CC search and rescue.  This cannot be repaired until we get new snow and colder weather.

West End Trails were cleaned up from snowmobile ingression yesterday.  East end trails including deeryard lake are being left alone until the temperature drops down below freezing.  There was a search and rescue crew that used the Deeryard trail with a snowmobile.  Be cautious on East side and long downhill run.

It's an inverse year! Skiing near the lake is better than out at deeryard since the lake trails have a firmer base and are holding their snow very well relative to the temperatures.  Please see www.norpinetrails.org for a detailed report.
