I was on the mountain on Friday this week. We have gotten 6-8 inches of new wet snow with a total about 1 1/2 feet at the groomer shed. The temperature was 39 degrees, too warm to groom and the snow is too wet to work. It would just ball up into snowballs. We really need cold weather and more snow, good snow, to groom. Grooming programs across the state are having the same problem. Lack of snow and warm temperatures parking most groomers. The rest of the week-end does not look good for grooming as temperatures are going to be in the high 30’s (it is 37 at Tollgate right now, Saturday at 10:30 a.m. with ODOT report of light rain), and night time temperatures are too warm to freeze up the snow. There is more rain in the forecast the first of next week, warm temperatures.
Wish I had better news.
