Spring Skiing Conditions On Casper Mountain

Posted on March 17, 2017 at 2:28 PM by Parks Department

As temperatures increase, snow conditions are decreasing for winter activities on Casper Mountain.  The weather forecast for this Saturday (March 18, 2017) calls for 75 degrees during the day and only 49 degrees at night combined with winds around 24 miles per hour.  Needless to say snow conditions will not be very good.  Limited grooming will take place the remainder of March and usually is discontinued around April 1.  Rocks and other obstacles may start showing through the snow so please use caution.

Casper Mountain Trails Center Hours of Operation Change

Posted on March 6, 2017 at 9:09 AM by Parks Department

The Casper Mountain Trails Center will be changing their hours of operation effective immediately.  The new hours are; Wednesday & Thursday 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Friday 2:00 - 9:00 p.m., and Saturday & Sunday 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.  The change is due to requests from skiers to remain open later as skiing conditions are typically better in the afternoon - evening hours.  Spring conditions now exist with warmer days causing melting during the afternoon hours which freeze again at night creating icy conditions in the morning.  The Trails Center will be tentatively closing on March 31, 2017 but may vary based on snow conditions.  Take advantage of the Nordic activities while they exist.

Current Snow Conditions On Casper Mountain

Posted on March 3, 2017 at 1:44 PM by Parks Department

Nordic Trails Conditions Update for March 3, 2017

  • Strong warm winds are expected on Casper Mountain for several days.  Expect slushy conditions in the afternoon with ice in the mornings.
  • As a reminder, please be considerate of others. The mountain trails are used by Nordic skiers, snow shoers, fat-tire bikers, etc. Please respect each other and it will be a great season.
  • Please stay off of the Nordic ski tracks if you are walking or riding bikes as the additional holes/tracks make it very hard to maintain ski trails. Please walk or ride to the side.
  • Ski passes are required for all that use the mountain trail system. Funds generated from ski pass sales go to maintaining and grooming trails. Passes can be purchased at Mountain Sports, Zeelo's, 42 Degrees North and Natrona County Roads, Bridges and Parks office in Mills.
