This Thursday, January 6th, Tahoe XC will be grooming up to Soup Station #1 of the Great Ski Race. So for those of you interested in trying out the first half of the race course or those looking to get ready for the Tahoe Rim Tour that goes off on January 23rd it will be groomed and ready for classic and skate skiing.
Snowmobiles ARE allowed on the fiberboard segment of the course so please be courteous while on that section. This is anywhere beyond the top of Extra Gold (the dotted line on the trail map). Go early for the best conditions! In my experience it seems the snowmobile traffic is usually pretty quiet on the weekdays anyway and if by chance one went on the grooming over night the groom isn’t affected too bad and it’s still quite skiable. Either way it’s something new to ski to change up the routine.
