Nordic Trails Conditions Update for February 24, 2017

  • The latest storm added approximately 18-24" of new snow on Casper Mountain.
  • The grooming crew was not able to get up on the mountain Thursday as the road was closed. They were able to start grooming on Friday.  Grooming will start on the western end around the Trails Center with Bishop's and Strube Loop and work their way east towards the Biathlon range.  
  • Crews will be working Friday and Saturday and should be able to groom all of the trails, but be aware equipment may be on the trails.
  • Conditions are excellent for cross country skiing, snowshoeing and fat-tire biking.
  • As a reminder, please be considerate of others. The mountain trails are used by Nordic skiers, snow shoers, fat-tire bikers, etc. Please respect each other and it will be a great season.
  • Please stay off of the Nordic ski tracks if you are walking or riding bikes as the additional holes/tracks make it very hard to maintain ski trails. Please walk or ride to the side.
  • Ski passes are required for all that use the mountain trail system. Funds generated from ski pass sales go to maintaining and grooming trails. Passes can be purchased at Mountain Sports, Zeelo's, 42 Degrees North and Natrona County Roads, Bridges and Parks office in Mills.

Spring Skiing Conditions Exist on Casper Mountain

Posted on February 16, 2017 at 9:23 AM by Parks Department

With increasing temperatures, spring skiing conditions exist on Casper Mountain.  The Casper Nordic ski trails system is experiencing warmer weather which causes daily melting and freezing on the groomed ski trails.  Grooming will, therefore, be limited during this time.  When a snow event occurs, grooming will take place but daily grooming between snow events will be limited.  Please note this as you are planning on skiing/biking/snowshoeing on Casper Mountain.  Fat tire bikers be aware that with increasing temperatures, the ability to sink into the snow increases.  Reducing the air pressure in your tires will help reduce indentation into the snow, thus leaving the area in better condition.
