WINTERSPORTS -- Finally -- enough snow fell on the higher elevations of Mount Spokane in the past 24 hours to allow the state park to groom cross-country ski trails today.  Here's a report from Cris Currie of the Friends of Mount Spokane State Park:

Conditions are slowly improving. I skied out to Junction 9 today, Dec. 19, following the groomer's track. It was actually pretty nice, but only 6-8" of very wet snow, and slow breaking trail where the groomer hadn't been.

There is just about no snow on the Lower Kit Carson Loop Road though. The snow line is just below the upper parking lots. Maybe there will be some more snow tomorrow, but levels are expected to rise on Sunday.
