After looking at the 7 day forecast, the word "cloudy" is nowhere to be found?!? But do not despair...there is some skiing to be had!
Hillside Tom says there are 1.5 inches of base with rocks showing here and there. The climbs are worse, but there are still a fair amount of people skiing. Yes!
Kincaid Craig hasn't left the cave yet. He's spending his time servicing "Big Red" (the Pisten Bully 600) wishing he was driving it instead.
Beach Lake Bill says the trails have some coverage with rocks and twigs showing through in places. For those who can't wait, the best bet for skating is only around the stadium (at Chugiak High School) and for classic around the Bridge Loop...on borrowed skis, that is ;) Yes!
The Coyote Trails at Mirror Lake Middle School are not recommended at this time due to, what appears to have been, an unauthorized 4-wheeler race. Besides, there is only about a half inch of base.
Eagle River High School trails have only seen foot traffic, so far.
Remember, it's not the destination but the journey...and sometimes the journey takes us over rocky trails. Have fun and be safe!
