Update Jan. 1, 2019

Happy New Year from Vallecito Nordic! We welcomed the new year with approximately 3 feet of fresh snow at the trailhead this morning.
Groomers worked all day just trying to pack all of the fresh snow. It will continue to be a work in progress. Good skiing, particularly skating is still a couple of days away. We will continue tomorrow (Wed. Jan.2) to pack the trails. Hoping that all of this dry, fluffy snow will start to consolidate and set up for better Nordic skiing.
Touring and snowshoeing will be great options.
Also, FYI, as of today, Jan. 1 the road to the trailhead had NOT been plowed!! High clearance, 4WD vehicles only.
We are hoping that the road will be plowed tonight or tomorrow morning.
Thanks and enjoy the return of Winter!!

Update Dec. 31, 2018

Okay, a couple of more inches fell Sunday night. More expected tonight and tomorrow (Jan.1)
Road and East Creek have been rolled and packed. Groomers will be out in the morning to begin initial grooming. Please give them a head start and be patient. Snow will most likely be very soft and classic skiing will be better than skating (FYI).
Fresh snow makes this a Happy New Year indeed!!

Update Dec. 28, 2018

Between 3″ and 8″ fell at Vallecito from this storm. Main road has been rolled but not groomed for classic or skating. Coverage is very thin. The first half of the road should be good light touring or snowshoeing. Too soft for skating. We are hoping that snow sets up overnight and we will try to groom tomorrow (Sat. Dec. 29) Thank you for your patience.
