Ski Club Grooming

South Flower  2/17/18 Everything below Jabber Junction rolled and tracks set for classic and skating! 

Golf Course  Both sides of golf course groomed 2/17/18
2/17/18  " New Nine" "Back 9" "Wilderness 9"  This is the part of the golf course with the big driving range!   The Wilderness 9 is groomed -- double classic tracks. We do not groom a skating lane at the golf course.  Parking lot has been plowed.  Please enter and exit through the marked passage in the berm.

2/17/18 " Old Nine"  "Front 9"   "Cabinet 9" We now have a volunteer grooming a loop from the clubhouse that is specifically for those who like to ski with their dogs.   Please be considerate and pick up after them!  There are 2 entry points:  about 20 yards down Country Club Rd and from the parking lot at the clubhouse. 

Bear Creek  (Hiway 2 and Bear Crk Rd 8 miles south of Libby) 2/16/18 There was 6" of new snow when Jon got there and it snowed 2" while he was working. He made 3 passes grading and set track.   Bear Cr is rated  VERY GOOD.  Jon recommends that people NOT ski the most difficult loop.  The rain on snow event of a couple weeks ago took out the base at the bottom of the downhills.  He was able to fill these back in with the current storm snow, but is concerned about the quality of this base material.  I do NOT know if the parking area has been plowed.   If you ski here, please let me know!!!  This is a good place to bring your dog to play in the snow!

Flatiron Summit  (25 miles north of Libby on Pipe Creek road) 2/6/18
 packed and graded   Rated VERY GOOD!
