Great conditions today in 25 degree weather at Anvil. About a half inch of snow on top of freshly groomed trails gave a nice glide and quite fast conditions. Thanks Evan for the timely grooming.

Afternoon
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
10" Base. All segments have been groomed and tracked. While grooming there were several large groups hiking the newly groomed tracks and skate deck from the Military Road Trailhead, so it may appear to not have been groomed. However, from the shelter and from STH 70 Trailhead, all trail segments are in excellent skiing condition.

Thanks to Dave Peters for your fine work grooming and keeping the trails in great working order due to challenging blow downs. We know your the guy that's doing all the work out here and this was my first visit to Anvil since I worked here. Glad to see you finally got a roller!

10" Base. All segments have been groomed. Due to an equipment malfunction the access trails (Military and the short spur trail from STH 70 trailhead) were groomed but not tracked. However, the entire interior system (West, Devils Run, Ninemile and East trail) have been groomed and tracked. Conditions are excellent.

Afternoon
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
6" Base. Military, West, East, and Nine mile trail segments were groomed and tracked today. Unable to get to Lake Loop as a portion of the day was spent rolling and widening the trail where possible. Devils Run was rolled and packed in preparation for grooming on Friday. Again, with cold weather, things should firm up nicely and provide for a great week of skiing. Tentative plan is to groom and track the entire system on Friday, December 20th.

With about an inch of fresh fluff on top of perfect grooming, conditions were great! Skied all loops over two hours and really enjoyed 9 Mile Loop. Best conditions in December for a decade.
