Winter Storm Cycle Grooming Advisory – Tuesday Jan. 10: We have seen a succession of back-to-back storm systems that have impacted the Priest and Trout Lake trails far more than trails closer to Telluride.  Snow is forecast to continue through the weekend.  The grooming crew will focus on Priest Lake during heavier snow periods.  Only limited classic track will be set as it quickly blows in during a storm. Whenever there is significant accumulation at Trout Lake the road may not be plowed until later in the day.

One of TNA’s long-time groomers will be out for the majority of this season.  Fortunately we have adequate fill-in groomers but there is a learning curve for grooming at Priest and Trout our new groomers are dealing with. Please be patient as we work towards keeping the trails in the best possible condition!

Priest and Trout Lake trail systems are both fully open now and are typically groomed on a daily basis except during a storm cycle or when other problems arise.  Skiers are encouraged to access the Trout Lake trail from Lizard Head pass due to limited parking at the lower (Trestle) trailhead.
