[ Trails: Closed ]
  Arrived at 7:30 this morning, hoping to groom a skate lane on the new snow, but we did not receive enough to put a skiable base over the ice and exposed dirt. Watched one hard-core member try an ski the 5K, but she returned for snowshoes after 5 minutes; skis were just sliding on the ice cap. So, we continue to wait for a groomable snowfall. Our equipment stands ready, the trails are clear, and we will open - and posting on Skinnyski - as soon as nature allows.

  We are closing the Snowflake trails, due to unsafe and unskiable conditions, until we receive a groomable quantity of new snow. For what it's worth, the trail conditions I encountered at West Yellowstone Friday were icy, thin, not a great deal better than what we enjoyed last week. The good news is that the ground is hard frozen, and will present a good base for the coming snowfall.

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.

  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.
