Limited Trail Grooming on Casper Mountain

Posted on March 23, 2017 at 10:34 AM by Parks Department

Due to warmer temperatures, several bare spots have appeared on the Casper Nordic ski trails area.  Snow conditions in areas such as north 40, Bishop's, beartrap and the maintenance shed have deteriorated to the point where grooming equipment will have limited effectiveness grooming the trail system.  If the mountain receives substantial spring snowfall, grooming will temporarily resume.  Please be aware that spring skiing conditions exist.  The Nordic Trails Center will remain open through the end of March.

Spring Skiing Conditions On Casper Mountain

Posted on March 17, 2017 at 2:28 PM by Parks Department

As temperatures increase, snow conditions are decreasing for winter activities on Casper Mountain.  The weather forecast for this Saturday (March 18, 2017) calls for 75 degrees during the day and only 49 degrees at night combined with winds around 24 miles per hour.  Needless to say snow conditions will not be very good.  Limited grooming will take place the remainder of March and usually is discontinued around April 1.  Rocks and other obstacles may start showing through the snow so please use caution.

Casper Mountain Trails Center Hours of Operation Change

Posted on March 6, 2017 at 9:09 AM by Parks Department

The Casper Mountain Trails Center will be changing their hours of operation effective immediately.  The new hours are; Wednesday & Thursday 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Friday 2:00 - 9:00 p.m., and Saturday & Sunday 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.  The change is due to requests from skiers to remain open later as skiing conditions are typically better in the afternoon - evening hours.  Spring conditions now exist with warmer days causing melting during the afternoon hours which freeze again at night creating icy conditions in the morning.  The Trails Center will be tentatively closing on March 31, 2017 but may vary based on snow conditions.  Take advantage of the Nordic activities while they exist.
