Snow! It is here! And with it, the first roll of the season.

Conditions are soft so stick with your classics. The roller just knocks down the deep snow consolidating it to less deep snow but can't condition it like the groomer.

A couple gates were still locked so only the main road and loops west of and including Silver Salmon are rolled.

Rumor is there may be work truck traffic to the trailhead for some time yet so don't despair if it gets tracked up. Just encourage any related workers to leave a lane for us if possible.

Also, it is deep snow and just a few of us doing the work. If you know and appreciate the skiing please consider donating some sweat equity with a little shovel work to keep equipment free of snow and ice or some cash to the Community Club to help pay for fuel and equipment maintenance. Make sure to note Nordic skiing with your donation.

That is all for now. Fingers crossed for more to come. Get out there and ski!

Just groomed the Russian River Campground trails today. Track has been set throughout. Great skate skiing. Best to hit the trails early in the morning when the snow is set up. Hopefully we'll be able to groom for a few more weeks!

RRCG Groomed today!

Russian River Campground Trails have been groomed through most of the campground loops and the main road into the Campground. A track has been set throughout. Good skate and classical skiing!!!

Only the main road saw the groomer today but look for loops to get a comb later this week. Tomorrow morning should be fast and firm if temps hold. Get your skate skis ready.

The new snow at the Russian River CG is rolled but still a little too soft for skating.

Head out with your classic skis this weekend and think cold thoughts so it will set up for good grooming.

There are a few inches of newer snow at the Russian but they rest, unbonded, on top of icy conditions.

Good enough to enjoy making some classic tracks with friends to find the sun.

Not good enough to groom without risk of equipment damage or just sweeping all the snow away.

All Russian River trails have been rolled and groomed after our last snow fall. Best to ski in the morning hours before temps get to high and trails become somewhat slushy!
