Grooming Report

Today's Comments - March 13, 2017

It's been a great year for winter trails but we're losing snow quickly with the warm temperatures. We've stopped grooming a large portion of our trails due to snow loss. We'll continue to groom around Willow Creek and Knoop park for trail users. I wouldn't recommend those for XC skiing. The upper portion of the Basin 5K still has coverage and we'll groom it as long as we can. If you're still wanting to XC ski, the 5k is your best option.

Sorry we haven't sent a grooming email lately, we've been switching computer service providers and haven't had access to computers for the last several days. We still don't have access to the grooming email so just keep checking this webpage.

We update this page each day that we groom so bookmark it for easy reference, or if you 'd like to join our email list to be notified when we groom just send a quick email to with your name and email address (and ask to be added to the grooming report list).

The Basin Recreation trails crew does not have a set grooming schedule. Our target grooming days are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday with a touch up of the heavier used trails on Saturday, but we may groom more or less depending on the weather. We typically won’t groom while snow is falling but we will proceed with grooming operations shortly after new snowfall stops. The crew has found that this is the most efficient way to provide the best trail surfaces. The grooming report will be updated and emailed as soon as grooming is complete. If you wish to receive grooming report emails, please send your request to
