Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ B skis ]
2.3K open. Good shape overall. Some debris here and there but overall very solid loop and worth the drive if you’re tired of rollerskiing. Skate deck excellent and only a bit icy on the S turn. Classic tracks were a little more hit and miss.

The snow was deteroriting a bit with the warm day, but is mostly good still. It got fast as the evening got colder and iced up. The same trail as last Sunday, about 2.5k total. A few loops and an out and back trail are ready with some more that looked like they may be ready soon.

Several loops are open at the trailhead, groomed and tracked with artificial snow, so skiing is great although limited to a couple km. There are portable toilets at the parking lot but the shelter was closed, at least when I was there.

It was a totally awesome three day weekend on the man-made loop at BTH [the start area trailhead]. There’s about 2K of really primo/fast snow down. I used good skis. Huge thanks to the ABSF Krü, those guys - WOW! Get a pass and enjoy!

Awesome day to get on snow. The loops that are open for the Turkey Birkie are in mostly great shape but there a couple brown spots and areas with sticks in the tracks, so I'd recommend B skis. If you're agile you should be able to get away with good skis no problem as 95% of the trail is clean. Lots of traffic today. Oslo Blue kicked great on manmade snow today :).

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails: Closed, Good skis ]
A little Thanksgiving update - enjoy your turkey and start prepping your skis! We have finished pushing out our 1.7km of snow and will be ready for Turkey Birkie - trails opening at 8am Friday! Our snowmaking continues full steam and will produce a bunch of snow the next few days but it is not likely we will get pushed out and groomed until next week. Trail passes can be purchased onsite but likely easier and faster from the comfort of your living room!

Snow production up at American Birkie Trailhead in Cable has been going well and we have started to push out the snow (snow guns still rolling!). We are anticipating approx. 1.5- 1.75k for Turkey Birkie knowing the guns will be rolling on other parts as well during that time. Shooting for 8am open on Friday morning (Nov 26), but check back often for updates. Watch the progress livestream.

Snowguns have been running most nights over the past week, transforming much of the Birkie trailhead in Cable. No official update on how much will be open for the Thanksgiving weekend Turkey Birkie event.

Observation 
3 inches at least and more coming down at Roam Adventure Basecamp by OO. Looks very skiable but we just have our bikes so can’t test the skiing.
