Nordic ski trail grooming report – March 24, 2017 (posted 3/24/17)
Mike Looney, Groomer, Sublette County Recreation Board
Friday, March 24, 8:15AM report: Old Road Trail, outer perimeter of Upper Surveyor, Lower Surveyor, Powerline, Kelly Tie-in, Kelly Park, Half Moon Tie-in all groomed this morning. Don’t recommend Powerline – a cow and calf moose are there right now. My apologies, you will experience less than perfect skiing today. The bottom has gone out of the trails and the groomer has occasionally broken through. Very difficult to groom the trail right now, the weight of the machine is leaving ruts. Got ½ foot or more snow from yesterday. 18F degrees at the Nordic Equipment Building. Road dry. This might be the last grooming of the season, have to play it by ear.

This Nordic Ski Trail grooming report is courtesy of the Sublette County Recreation Board.

Early March (posted 3/15/17)
Ice on the Green River, bluebirds, still lots of snow
Dave Bell has posted a new album of photos from late February-early March. He reports seeing three bluebirds in Pinedale on Wednesday, March 15th, a sure sign of spring on the way. No sandhill cranes reported yet. He also sent in a photo of the ice jam buildup on the Green River north of LaBarge. Pronghorn are still lingering in the lower elevations and still haven’t started to move north due to the deep snow. Once they do start to move, viewers can watch them pass through on the Trappers Point Overpass Wildlife webcam. Click on this link to see Dave's latest photos: Dave Bell Photo Gallery
