Spruces,White Pine

Well, that’s a wrap. Pavement showing on north side of upper loop prevents a full groom. We are finished grooming for the year. There is still plenty of snow up there to ski on, and fresh snow next week could make for nice classic skiing. However, grooming operations are concluded. Thanks for a good season!


About 1-2 inches of new snow at Spruces. I groomed the Upper Loop this morning, it was still snowing hard as I left, so if you go up it will likely be fresh snow on top of corduroy. Be careful, even though there is new snow, there is pavement just underneath it on the North side of the Upper Loops that you could go down to. Have fun!

Grooming today was not too bad today. Temps warming up with a high of 46 so being your spring skis for the afternoon. Tomorrow should be about the same. We should stay open until at least April 18, but conditions permitting. Enjoy your skiing while you can!


Folks, I’ll be honest with you, conditions were nice today. We groomed the Spruces upper loop and the practice loops. We are done grooming the lower loop and Jordan Pines for the year. Spruces upper loop still skiable all the way around, but look out for tree wells and pavement. Have fun!

Deer Hollow Winter Recreation Area

(Thurs. Mar. 31) Last Deer Hollow Grooming for the Season!
Today was the last Grooming Day for the season… 😢 it was snowing as we were grooming. The Big Cat was able to lay some good corduroy and track. All of the XC Trails were groomed with the big SnoCat Groomer, and tracks were set on most.
Snowshoe trails were groomed with the BearCat snowmobile and small YTS Groomer.
Todays Groomers were Jess H. (FS) & Volunteers: Steve, Topher, Chris, & Jim.
The Deer Hollow snow pack is a settled 3 ft., making good backcountry/off-trail conditions. These beautiful spring conditions, won’t last long, so get out and enjoy!
For us “Die-Hards”, the skiing and snowshoeing doesn’t end now! Skiable snow may last into May on protected north-facing slopes… you just have to be willing to find it.
Note: After the grooming, a couple of inches of new snow fell on the trails.

42°F at 0900. Spruces trails groomed for skating. Classic will have to wait until after the snow comes in later. Surprisingly good results this morning. It is soft with some bare spots under the trees, but overall, still good skiing.
