I skied the lower loops at Grand today. The lower 1.5k loop has plenty of snow, but the snow is pretty dirty. The surface of the trail was frozen and crusty this morning, and the hard ruts are challenging to navigate. There is a classic track around the lower loops which I skied yesterday. My Red Klister was kicking beautifully when it was warm and slushy.

Grand Ave continues to be in good shape for skating. The lower 1.5k loop is really good, just some dirty snow. The upper loop is still very skiable, but it has several large icy spots. The lower 1.5k loop has many days left of good skiing ahead.

UPDATE: Grand Avenue Nordic Center trails will remain open for "health and well being" after it was announced earlier today they were closing due to COVID-19. The lower trails were groomed on 3/16. Future grooming of the Nordic trail system is weather dependent and updates will be made at that time. The Spirit Mountain chalets and runs remain closed until further notice.

As of today, grooming at GANC has ended for the season. Thank you all for coming out to ski the loops at GANC, and thanks for the staff at Spirit Mnt for their Pisten Bully grooming dedication this winter.

It was very good skating today at Grand. The lower 1.5k of trails are groomed firm and wide. The upper loops haven't been groomed for a couple weeks, and have a few big icy patches. There is a classic track set around the lower 1.5k loop, it is very icy, though.

Upper loop at GANC is icy and thin and grooming may be done for the season on this section. Lower loop is freshly groomed with PB and set with a single track due to current snow conditions.
