On the last day of 2015, the cross country ski trails at Alturas Lake are looking very good and skiing well. All trails except for Wapiti and North Cabin are sporting a fresh corduroy surface suitable for skating and flat tracking. The last 200 yard stretch of trail along the east side of Alturas Lake creek and the bridge crossing itself are scheduled to be worked on today. Although classic tracks have not yet been set, they are our next priority.
At Park Creek, progress has stalled momentarily with the loss of our vintage groomer, Thaddeus Sardonicus. He has decided to move on from grooming and combing snowflakes for the skiing public to devote his time to more artistic pursuits. We expect to be back on the trail there very soon with a new grooming team for the dawning of the happy new year of 2016.
