April 14th:  The final grooming of the season in PLPP was done from Elk Pass parking lot under clear skies with no precipitation falling.  The trails groomed on Friday night were down to ice in many places, but mainly in spots north of Packers, and Amos had 2 full bare spots -although they were covered they may melt out before Sunday evening.

Warm Spring temperatures and rain have brought many low elevation trails down to ice in places with some patches of bare ground or pavement and most trails last groomed before April 8th will have bare spots, with some other places not far behind.  With Spring freeze-thaw conditions, expect icy trails in the morning, softening when temperatures rise.  Grooming has now concluded for the season in PLPP and at Mt Shark.

Campground roads will be plowed starting Monday the 15th, and will affect the trails of Amos, Wheeler, Whiskey Jack and Moraine.
