Casper Mountain Conditions and Updates

Posted on January 26, 2021 at 11:30 AM by Parks Department

Nordic Trails Conditions Update for January 26, 2021

  • We received a  few inches of fresh snow over the weekend; nearly all of the trails have been groomed over the last two days. These are the best conditions we’ve had so far this year. 

  • We still cannot connect Zig-zag through the meadow and View has wind scoured bare spots. Beartrap is covered and skiable but is extremely thin from a grooming standpoint. The machines are still in full contact with the ground for nearly 500 feet. Beartrap will only be groomed on larger fresh snowfalls until we get enough to cover that thin area.

  • We have received about 45 inches of snow for the season, we should have in excess of 80 inches to be average for this time of year. Due to this lack of snow, some trails are able to be groomed “as-needed” others are not.  Come and enjoy the trails!

  • 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.
