Soft Snow Conditions Exist at Casper Mountain Nordic Area

Posted on November 21, 2018 at 8:40 AM by Matt Buhler

Please be aware that snow conditions at the Casper Mountain Nordic Trails Area change daily during the early season.  All users are reminded that when temperatures increase above freezing, the snow begins to melt and soften.  At that time, please do not use the trail system if you are leaving deep tracks.  There have been several instances where users have used the groomed trails and have left deep ruts.  When the snow softens, please do not use the area.  It causes the area to not be usable until another snowfall or until the groomer can make another pass.  During the early season when we have limited snow, the groomer may not be able to make as many passes, thereby making the trail system marked up and hard to use.

Snow Conditions at Casper Mtn. Nordic Area

Posted on November 6, 2018 at 7:50 AM by Matt Buhler

First packing run on 5-6 inches of wet, dense new snow, plus remnants of previous storms took place on 11/5/2018. Base depth is 1-2 inches. Trails packed; Strube Loop and portions of the Maze. All other trails are CLOSED, please stay off them!  Strube Loop turned out nice, the Maze, not so much. The Stadium portion of the Maze and portions of the Lights on the east side are decent. The rest of the Maze is basically a ‘hay field’.  Lights are NOT ON until we get enough snow to cover the ‘hay field’.  Rock skis are recommended, enjoy.
