Mt. McIntyre ski report

The McIntyre Loop was groomed and tracked on Monday and is very good for classic skiing. There are a few rocks poking through.

The McIntyre Loop was groomed and tracked on Monday and is very good for classic skiing. There are a few rocks poking through.

Selwyn’s Loop, Lower Valley, Upper Valley and Copper are fair for skating. 

Skating on the World Cup 10K is fair between Fireweed Junction and Moose Hill.

Classic skiing is possible, but no tracks are set.

Day passes are half-price this week.

Use extreme caution on all downhills — walk if in doubt.

Rock skis are required on the lower Mt Mac trails and skiing is still not recommended for novice or beginner skiers.  Novice skiers should try Jackson Lake for the first outing of the year.

If skiing the McIntyre Loop, it is strongly recommended to walk up the Ascent or Descent Trail.

If driving up the Descent Trail, good winter tires and/or chains and four-wheel drive are essential.

Do not attempt to drive unless properly equipped.

Use caution and be prepared to meet oncoming traffic. The road is one lane most of the way.

World Cup 10K is closed at Raven’s Ridge. Use the power line to bypass the development.

The Raven’s Ridge detour will be open and well signed when skiing starts on the 10K.

See the club webpage for more details.

Please do not walk or run on the ski trails.

Dogs are allowed only on designated trails.

Wax suggestions: If you’re skiing the McIntyre Loop or Jackson Lake use Rode Blue. If slipping, try Rode Superblue.  Always take extra waxes and a cork with you.
