Generally gorgeous sunny weather and nicely groomed trails continue to make the Alturas and Park Creek ski areas a first class destination for cross country enthusiasts. Although mechanical difficulties have been a pain to deal with as our 2 quad tracks and a snowmobile all broke down at the same time, grooming has continued non stop with our back up gear with no real drop in quality. The Quad track is now back in service at Alturas where the oldest snowmobile in our fleet proved to be a quirky but dependable replacement. Warm weather with highs in the 50’s means that the trails have been going through a 3 bears’ soup cycle of too cold, just right, too hot. Temperatures are predicted to be falling later in week with more snow on Friday.
