Snow Report 1/23/2014 No new tracksetting done this week.

Virginia Hill Orbit is in fair shape above 7147E and good shape on 7147E. I've been starting skiing about 1/2 mi. in on the 7147E. The area got about 1"+ snow this week.

Still Cr. Loop Track is good on Cooks Run and Still Cr. legs but pretty thrashed by snomobile traffic along West Pinkham to Cooks Run junction. I did break trail an additional ~1.5 mi up the Still Cr. Rd. to the delight of moose and even some deranged deer. Doable vertical at the 2 mi. marker on Still Cr. for addicts.

Beartrap-Helmer Loop Skied last weekend with some light crust some powder and a fine view of the valley inversion. Wind crust has made the clearcuts challenging for the general tourer but helped the base and should not be too tough for equipped skiers.
