2017-2018 SEASON

2017-2018 Grooming Calendar

1/6/18: They did groom Razor Hone, Anderson, and Hannigan Pass Road last Wednesday or Thursday.  And the snow has held up surprisingly well with a little corduroy still showing!  I skated part way up Cougar this afternoon and it was ‘good’!  (Watch out for a very few rocks…) Broadly speaking, I’d expect it to be faster in the morning and a little softer and more forgiving in the afternoon.  No tracks were set, but classical skiers reported that it was smooth and reasonable skiing.  It was reported that White Salmon had fresh snow.  (It was a very gentle mist of rain at Razor Hone.)
1/4/18: I went not far from the end of Anderson Cr Road on my Hok skis.  Crossing at the 0.9 mile washout can be difficult and very dangerous if you slip crossing the culvert.  There are downed trees across the road on several places.

1/2/18: We’re hoping for grooming Razor Hone tomorrow (Wednesday morning) in which case it should be great conditions.  Today’s report – Razor Hone: Solid, firm base, relatively smooth, no tracks. It was reasonably good skating, but not for beginners – no corduroy and a little bumpy. Not very inviting for diagonal (in-track) skiing. Temperature 34 degrees at 12:30.  White Salmon: Beautiful snow with multiple user-created snowshoe trails, but no grooming.  Main highway in very good condition up to the icy parking area.  (Road conditions can change in minutes!) Temperature 37 degrees at 12:00. Weather reports suggest tomorrow might be great, Thursday ok, and ‘not-so-good’ for the weekend
