Has anyone been on Lost Lake Trail recently and can report on the conditions?

Re: Portage Lake-I haven't been but spoke with some would be ice climbers on Sunday. They had come back into town with reports of little ice in the Portage Valley and open water on the lake. But I did not see any of this myself so keep that in mind.

Spencer was crisp corduroy on a solid base. The lighted loops were a thin groomed layer on solid ice. It was all fun, fast skating!

Stadium, Mat-Su loops and Mtn Streams access trail re-groomed for skating. One inch of powder Saturday night helped.

Any more recent updates as to conditions on Portage Lake?

Fresh groom at Kincaid. Kind of soft, but very nice.

The road was groomed for skate and classic to the gate late tonight. 2 inches of new snow saturday made for ideal grooming on a nice base. Clear skies and a 2 hour northern lights show guided the way. Enjoy!
Arctic to Indian Traverse

Pretty good coverage on the creek made for a much better ski than we expected. The bottom half of the Arctic downhill was very icy and thin. Great soft snow up near Indian Pass. We were able to ski to within a mile of the road. Good times!

Mat-Su Ski Club will re-groom Archangel Rd when the snow stops (late tonight or tomorrow). If we get enough snow at GPRA we will groom that also.

Odd conditions after the Ski for Kids - lumpy, soft, yet pretty fast. Perfectly good if not wonderful skiing (on the snowmaking loop only, of course). Bad weather, though: 31 degrees and raining hard enough to soak normal ski clothes in sub-30 minutes.
To the earlier question about salt, I don't know.

Nice ice skating on the lake today 27 k round trip. 1/4 inch frost on ice.

Skating at Rabbit Slough was in prime condition -- our gang went out to the marsh & it was all very nice ice and lots of it. A few areas of overflow only had frozen a few inches thick so far.

Question: Did the groomers / course officials salt the snow-making loop for the RMISA Champs? Picture in the paper made them look pretty firm and fast. They were soft and slow earlier in the week.

The snow making loop was the very best conditions (friday morning) that I have seen all year. Of course, that's probably because it was groomed really nicely for a national collegiate race. Thanks college! I loved it!

The RS is in pnenomenal shape for skates after mother nature's zamboni effort this week. Enjoyed a marvelous 6 mile cruise out to marshes. Though we didn't get out on the marsh area due to a late start, word on the slough was that the marsh offers some fine skating as well. Get out there and enjoy before the next snowfall arrives!

The trails were just groomed today. They are good, some overflow in places. Check us out on facebook.
Mendeltna creek lodge. I try to keep it updated daily

Things are way different in my opinion than DrGeo's report from last nite; great corduroy courtesy of NSAA, great glide on all trails. Sure there's some dirt, gravel and ice patches here and there but easily avoided and who in their right mind would bring out their best skis given what the trails have been going thru anyway! Stuff that hasn't been groomed today is a little more sketchy but still skiable, but they're hittin' plenty. Go get it while you can!
