Nordic Trail Conditions on Casper Mountain

Posted on March 16, 2018 at 2:29 PM by Matt Buhler

The winter season of 2017-18 has produced one of the lowest snow totals on record.  Casper Mountain only received 4" of wet snow last night which is not enough to keep several of the Nordic trails open.  Because of areas that have bare ground or rocks/logs sticking through; Beartrap and Ridge trails will not be groomed again.  Bishop, Good Luck and Ski Team trails will not be groomed after the weekend (March 17-18).  The weather forecast shows little chance of precipitation and warmer temperatures, which will continue to cause trail conditions to deteriorate.  The Conditions and Updates page on the Natrona County website (http://www.natronacounty-wy.gov/633/Conditions-and-Updates) will be updated with any new trail closures.  The area is still open but be aware of obstacles that may arise.

Nordic Trails Condition Update

Posted on January 23, 2018 at 1:52 PM by Parks Department

    Nordic Trails Conditions Update for January 23, 2018
  • Casper Mountain received around 12" of new snow during the weekend.  Crews have groomed all the trails.  Conditions have drastically increased from last week but skiers are advised that in some places, rocks, stumps and bare soil may still be an obstacle.  
  • There are several possible snow events in the forecast so hopefully conditions will continue to increase.
  • If you are interested in seeing what current conditions are, there are two new web cameras at the Nordic Trails Lodge.  Go to the Natrona County website under webcamera at http://weather.natrona.net/ or http://weather.natrona.net/MtnWeather.aspx?page=WebcamSouth
  • As a reminder, please be considerate of others. The mountain trails are used by Nordic skiers, snow shoes, 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 snowshoe or ride to the side of the ski track.
  • 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.

  • Casper Mountain received 3" of new snow during the week.  Both the Maze and Strube have cleaned up pretty good with thin spots throughout the trail system.
  • On average there is 1-3" groomed base so recreationalists are urged to use caution as obsticles exist throughout the trails system. 
  • We are expecting new snow starting Friday night (12/15) through Saturday that should provide several more inches of snow.  Crews will be out grooming so watch for equipment on the trails.
