Thursday, December 4, 9:00AM report: Less than 1" of new now. 31 degrees at Kelly Park, a little colder at Surveyor Park this morning. Old Road Trail, Upper Surveyor, Moose Ridge, Tree Loop, Flatline, Lower urveyor on Powerline, Kelly Tie-in, Kelly Park all freshly groomed. Still can’t get across the bottom of the lower end of Lower Surveyor because of water overflow. Also, watch out for wildlife, there are a few moose on the loose hanging around the trails. Road plowed. Recommend coming up early today – the sun is coming out and it is supposed to warm up to about 40 degrees today. White Pine Ski Area opened for the season today – watch out for more traffic on the road in both directions. This Nordic Ski Trail grooming report is courtesy of the Sublette County Recreation Board.
