Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
  Note: Snowflake is open to Members Only until further notice, due to the limited groomed track and the thin, fragile base. The groomed portion of the 5K is suitable for B-skis. The 10K and Special K are more exposed, and should be skied with Rock skis, at your own risk. We won't be open to Day Pass skiers until we get our next groomable snow.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]
  So I went around multiple times with the groomer and now the 4K is in pretty decent shape for skate skiing there are some bare spots and there's rock showing and there are some icy spots but all in all it should be pretty good skiing. The chalet will be open tomorrow (Tuesday) and it will be a day by day thing depending on the weather.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails: Closed, Rock skis ]
  Snowflake Nordic's trails are closed until we get the next groomable snowfall. The trails remain 99% covered, with an icy cap that is keeping the ground hard, but is too thin to scratch-up and make skiable. It is, frankly, unsafe as it is. The Chalet will be closed until we reopen the trails. After 10 days of unexpected early-November skiing, it is time to re-wax the skis and prepare for the winter to come. The seven day forecast is not promising, so we wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. The snow will return.

Grooming 
[ Trails: Closed, Rock skis ]
  We are Closing the trails at noon today, and will be Closed all day on Wednesday due to the rain and warm temps. We want to preserve the existing base, looking toward the cool-down and possible snow at the end of the week. We will post our Thursday/Friday status after the rain event departs.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  A great weekend of skiing, with hundreds of skiers on our trails Saturday and Sunday. The activity has compressed the base, and the Sunday morning grooming helped to smooth it and fill thin areas. Not December conditions, but not bad for early November. Now, we see what the weather brings for the next three days. We are open 8 - 8 today, and plan the same hours tomorrow. If weather dictates otherwise, we will notify. The East HS Nordic team begins daily practices at Snowflake today. Expect lots of activity between 4 - 6 pm.
