Trail Conditions

Grooming Report, December 7, 2019
Base:  4-5 inches

New Snow:  2 inches

The best skiing at Pincushion this season is on tap for Saturday and Sunday.  All trails are groomed for both classic and skate with the exception of Pincushion Mountain Trail.  That trail is skiable but has some exposed rocks and ice that has the potential to damage equipment.

The skate deck is beginning to level out and classic tracks cut-in nicely.  Colder temperatures tonight will cool the snowpack and should set everything up nicely for the weekend.

See you on the trails.

Announcements

2019 Pincushion Trails Workday    
                                           

Introduction     
The Annual Pincushion Trails Workday is coming up next Saturday.  This workday is a key part of keeping the trails cleared in preparation for the upcoming ski season, and we need your help. 

Work Description           
The goal is to clear the trails of encroaching undergrowth and tree limbs, enabling a clear path roughly from outside ditch to outside ditch and 12 feet tall for the ski trail grooming equipment to ensure we are well set up for great ski trails.  Volunteer trail section “captains” have already been at work on different sections of the trail system and in many areas,  brush has been cut but still needs to be cleared from the trail into the woods. 

When  
Saturday, October 26, from 1-5PM

Where 
Meet and sign in at Pincushion chalet.    Volunteers will be organized into teams to head out to high-priority sections of the trail. 

What to Bring   
Work gloves, work boots, hand tools (saws, loppers).

To complement trail improvements made in the last few years, we would like to give the Pincushion Trail Center a much-needed facelift, creating a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere where trail users can gather and relax.  A complete description of the project and our wish list is at  THE TOP OF THIS PAGE UNDER THE TRAIL MAINTENANCE AND PROJECTS TAB
Just as Pincushion Trails and the Trail Center were built by community, we hope that the community will continue to come together to upkeep this treasure we share.  If you would like to be involved or have suggestions, contact us at pincushiontrails@gmail.com
