Casper Mountain Conditions and Updates

Posted on January 20, 2021 at 9:13 AM by Parks Department

Nordic Trails Conditions Update for January 20, 2021

  • An inch or so of new snow; conditions are improving but still not great. We are at approximately 50% of normal snowfall for the season, which is post Thanksgiving snow levels in the latter half of January.  Think snow!!!
  • We now have a classic track set on roughly half our trails. It's the groomers' discretion if they set tracks depending on snow conditions at that time. There are still some extremely thin spots, but the exposed rocks that have been on Beartrap and Ridge have about 1/2" snow covering. Be aware hazards still exist.
  • 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.

  • Winter is back, 5 to 6 inches of new snow. Trail conditions are greatly improved. Still short a foot or more of snow to be able to groom as needed.

Nordic Trails Conditions Update for December 28, 2020

  • NC Parks is not yet grooming due to lack of snow, we are only packing fresh snow until we have enough to start grooming operations.

  • The mountain has received roughly 35% of average snowfall for this time of year.
  • The Maze and Strube Loop are in the best shape out of all of the trails. These trails have decent snow coverage and have Classic tracks set. The lights are on. 
  • All other trails have bare ground showing or very thin, rocky, dirty spots, and/or vegetation protruding.  Ski them at your own risk. Hazards exist. 
  • There will be races this weekend at the Nordic Trails as well as the Biathlon Range.
  • 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.
