Trail Report: Tie City Snowshoe Trail

Winter has returned to Pole Mountain, well at least for now.

This morning we loaded up the car and headed to the Tie City to snowshoe along the multi-use snowshoe trail.snowshoe trails

It was a beautiful morning.

Here were the current trail conditions:

  • Date: 2/18/15
  • Time: 9-10 am MST
  • Temperature: 25-30°F & warming up
  • Weather: Sunny with a few scattered clouds
  • Wind: Breezy but not knock you on your ass windy
  • Trail Snowshoed: Multi-use trail (perfect for fat bikes and snowshoes)
  • Snowpack: Windblown and balding on the summit (how’s that for creative writing) but surprisingly nice and deep through the forest.
  • Snow conditions: Dry, cold, snow
  • Grooming: The multi-use trail network isn’t groomed but the areas where it does past the groomed trails were looking good. We saw the groomer up there this morning. You can check out the grooming report for the entire trail system here.
  • Wax: We snowshoed this morning but if I were to guess the kick wax of the day I’d go with something in the violet family.
