If you’re skiing in the Baker Creek area, Chuck noted that “no more tracksetting west of Baker Creek, and no tracksetting in Protection Campground as Olivia is denning in the area.”

From today’s trip reports, it sounds like conditions were pretty good. Hopefully the wind won’t cause any damage overnight.

When you’re considering skiing a trail which you are unfamiliar with, it’s easy, and sometimes important to research it. On the sidebar, under Places to Ski, click on the trail you’re interested in and you’ll see the updates which I’ve written over the years. 

We’re hearing about some amazing trips which skiers are doing. Sara M completed an epic ski trip to the Sundance warden’s cabin yesterday with nine hours and 45K, and today’s trip report from Rainer A and Gary M on Skoki-Pipestone was 13 hours.
