Friday, March 14, 10:15AM report: All trails above freshly groomed this morning except for the new portion of Lower Surveyor called Powerline Loop and Tree Loop, which should still be in good shape. Use caution on the reconstructed trail adjacent to the White Pine parking lot due to dirt mixed in with snow – recommend taking off your skis and walking that stretch to avoid damage to skis. 32 degrees, looks like it will be a nice day today. Caution to off-trail morning crust skiers: Please be considerate of wildlife on winter range in the area. Your presence can spook them into deep snow where they struggle to get through and causes them to expend energy that is crucial for their survival this time of year. Look ahead of you and if you see wildlife or fresh tracks or sign, turn around so you do not disturb them. Elk, deer, and moose use this area too and rely on the wind scoured south and west slopes to find forage this time of year. The little moose that was on the Surveyor Creek Loop trail in Kelly Park appears to have left the area, so that trail is open again.
