Snow Conditions at Casper Mtn. Nordic Area

Posted to Natrona County Parks by Matt Buhler

First packing run on 5-6 inches of wet, dense new snow, plus remnants of previous storms took place on 11/5/2018. Base depth is 1-2 inches. Trails packed; Strube Loop and portions of the Maze. All other trails are CLOSED, please stay off them!  Strube Loop turned out nice, the Maze, not so much. The Stadium portion of the Maze and portions of the Lights on the east side are decent. The rest of the Maze is basically a ‘hay field’.  Lights are NOT ON until we get enough snow to cover the ‘hay field’.  Rock skis are recommended, enjoy.
