LAST REPORT OF THE SEASON
XC SKI & SNOWSHOE CONDITIONS FOR THE TRILLIUM LAKE BASIN
Sat, March 31, 2018 9am
WEATHER: Overcast with small glimpses of blue sky
TEMPERATURE: 32 degrees
NEW SNOW IN THE PAST 24 HRS: none
AVERAGE ACCUMULATION OF SNOW ON THE GROUND: 12 inches - 2 feet depending on whether it’s been compacted. Snow is firm in the morning and evening and softens up mid day. Warmer temperatures and melting continue to reduce the snowpack at this elevation. Expect bare spots to be developing.
SPRING XC SKI AND SNOWSHOE CONDITIONS CONTINUE TO BE EXCELLENT! The snowcovered roads provide the best snow depth and conditions. XC Skiers and snowshoers will need to establish and reinforce separate tracks on the Trillium Lake Loop and the Hemlock Trail.
Barlow Trail is a good choice for snowshoers.
The Forest Service has locked the snow gates at Westleg and Trillium for the winter.
SnoParks are required in all winter parking areas.
