Winter season is in full swing and there are many upcoming activities taking place on Casper Mountain. A great resource for information is the Natrona County website, specifically the calendar. On the weekend of January 28-29, please be aware there are several activities going on. The sled dog races will take place utilizing a variety of trails specifically in and around Bear Trap meadow. Additionally, the Cowboy State Games will hold their annual Winterfest/Cold Avenger Winter Triathlon events. The triathlon will take place on several of the groomed trails associated with the Casper Nordic trail system. Some of the trails may be temporarily closed for the triathlon so please be aware of additional people using the area. There
are miles of trails that will not be utilized by either activity so
come on up and enjoy the mountain and even watch some great competition.
Grooming will continue with new snow expected the beginning of the week of January 23rd. Conditions are excellent for cross country skiing, snow shoeing and fat-tire biking.
