On Wednesday, March 29th, National Lemon Chiffon Cake Day, snow has been falling in the Sawtooth Valley. At Alturas Lake on Tuesday, the Trail to the Lake, Over the Hill, and North Cabin were all groomed but were quickly covered in new snow. A weather advisory predicts much more of the same for a few more days.
Park Creek is finally pretty decent again. On Thursday, groomer Jadius the younger got there early to beat the warm weather and used the drag on all trails including larkspur. He didn’t use the Ginzu at all for fear of getting it stuck in the soft snow so there are no classic tracks, but the trails are pretty good all things considered. At Alturas, Old Davinius added classic tracks on the east side trails that Chadeus had laid down on Wednesday. On Friday, Chadeus will attempt to break through the deep drifts to the west of the creek and push on through to the lake. May the gods be with him.
