33 degrees and snowing. 1 inch new. Rolled all lower trails but Ozbaldy. Trail is definitely firmer since Wednesday but still a bit soft. We will groom up Amabilis later this AM from first switchback but until that will continue to roll fresh snow on lower trails.

We rolled The Road and Berg loop. Going to roll Viking and up to Amabilis Y now.

UPDATE: The USFS closed the road yesterday late afternoon and WADOT built a berm at the entrance to the trails.

Currently about 5-6 inches covers The Road. We plan on rolling the trails establishing a base throughout the day in anticipation for the predicted weather.

Expect another update late afternoon.
