Trail updates, staff notes, and current weather
Last night trails on the valley floor froze but those higher up were a little softer. The warm day time temps will soften all trails by mid morning. More moisture in the way today and throughout the week which should reset some trails with fresh snow if it all comes in at the right time. We recommend skiing only trails that have been groomed in the last 24-72 hours. Some sections of trail are thin and we've noted that on individual trail reports. Click on the trail you're curious about on the live map to see individual trail notes. For those of you looking for a place to walk or run, the Big Valley Ranch Trails and the Twin Trail in Winthrop are mostly bare and open for walking. All other trails are still under winter trail access use only and not open for walking. Thank you for supporting our work by purchasing your trail pass!

Ditch the car and let TranGO do the driving! Our local public tranportation bus service is now offering trips to the upper valley, including the Mazama trailhead. Rides are just $1 and kids are free. You can even bring your bike or skis along for the ride, and drivers can drop you off anywhere along the route it is safe to pull over. TranGO runs all day, Monday-Saturday; check out their website for route and schedule details.
It's 30F this morning at 6:00 a.m. Should be a day for spring skiing, but maybe carry a rain jacket just in case...
