Report at 19-Jan, 4:47PM MST

Jan 19th, 2020: After an almost 48 hour period with no new snow in PLPP, some light flurries moved in to at least the south half the Park on Saturday just as the night's grooming was finishing up; expect at least a trace of snow on all new grooming.

There will be some drifting and filled in tracks in some areas of the trail system from snow being blown around by recent strong winds. These winds, combined with a heavy snow load on the trees, continued to bring down more trees earlier in the week, as well as dropping "tree bombs," branches, and woody debris on to the trails: expect tree debris to be mixed in to the grooming in places.

Packers still has a few bumps and uneven surfaces on one short section about a third of the way down; there is also the possibility of some ice coming to the surface in this section. The northernmost section of Lodgepole has reopened, and the ice in the marsh is now thick enough for the snow cat; Pocaterra Hut to the Sinclair junction was groomed on Jan 18th. Lookout may have some uneven surfaces, especially on the sharp S turns- always use extra caution on Lookout, especially on the steep south side. Fox Creek and Moraine were trackset and all the fallen trees have been removed, however there is still a bit of tree debris on the trail and in the tracks in some areas. Trees may have fallen since the last grooming on Boulton Creek
