We are done for the winter at Mountain Dell.
There is limited but still fun skiing, but you can't make a loop of it. As of 5 P.M. Wednesday, March 11, it was no longer possible to complete any loops without taking off a ski to hop over small portions of pavement or grass. It rained Wednesday afternoon, and that created those limited bare spots.
Our contract with SLC Golf requires us to stop grooming in mid-March, and have certain areas completely cleared of snow by April 1. Even after the grooming is wrapped up, there is plenty of work for the volunteer grooming crew.
It has been a great nordic season at Mountain Dell. As of Wednesday, March 11, we have had a groomed, skiable track at Mountain Dell for 103 days for the 2019-20 winter. For those who purchased their Mountain Dell pass at the preseason rate, skiing cost less than 60 cents a day. Even if you only skied once a week this year, the per day price works out to about $4 a day. Pretty good value for a track so close to town, groomed daily.
Thanks for being a part of the Mountain Dell community!
