Recreation at Pincushion during the Pandamec
 

We recognize that it is important to get outside for exercise during the Covid-19 pandemic, and the Pincushion Trails will remain open for day use with the following suggestions for everyone to stay safe
Always maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet from others except for members of the same household.
If possible, wash hands with soap and water as frequently as possible.  The use of hand sanitizer for disinfecting your hands is probably a more practical option while engaging in outside exercise activities.
Outdoor activities should be planned as close to home as possible.  Now is probably not a good time to travel large distances to recreate
Do not car pool to the Pincushion trail head, other than with your family members

Minimize face to face contact with others you may encounter on the trails.  Most of the Pincushion trails are wide enough that 6 foot social distancing can be maintained if encountering others
Thanks for your cooperation while recreating at Pincushion.  We want everyone to be able to enjoy this area in a safe manner. 

Please remember that the Pincushion Chalet and wax room will be locked until further notice

 

Trail Conditions

Pincushion Ski Trails Grooming Report
Saturday, March 21
 
Base 15 to 19 inches.  2 to 3 inches of new snow on Thursday.  All of our trails except Morris Maze and Hilfiker Hill were groomed for classic and skate skiing on Friday evening.  As is typical for this time of year, skiing conditions are good immediately following a fresh groom, but will deteriorate as increasing temperatures and sunshine warm the snow.

The Pincushion Women’s ski will be held at today at 2:00PM but there will be no social gathering in the chalet afterwards. We will practice social distancing where we can enjoy each other’s company while skiing or snowshoeing outdoors. We are disappointed to cancel the social hour but know it is prudent to limit exposure.
