On a grey Saturday, the 6th of January, celebrated as the Epiphany or the Feast of the Three Kings and also the birthday of French artist Paul Gustave Dore’, temperatures in the Sawtooth Valley were hovering around 33 degrees. Ski Trails at Park Creek were rated a 10 on Friday and Alturas got a 10 pointer for overall gestalt on Thursday. More good news… despite a couple of thin areas, the trail at Stanley’s Pioneer Park is groomed and looking pretty good. Our 3 grooming wise men have scheduled grooming for today at Park Creek and Alturas. One might expect generally good but somewhat wet snow conditions until temperatures drop again. At Alturas, the flooded area on North Cabin Trail appears to have frozen over. Watch for ice. Over the Hill, the Trail to the Lake as far as the Old Bridge crossing and Sheep Thrills were groomed Friday.
