On October 26th the Lily Lake trails on Kebler Pass, which is just 6 miles West of Crested Butte, CO, were groomed for classic and skate skiing.  A packed base of 1 to 6 inches blankets roughly 5km of good early season skiing.  Rock skis are the way to go since there are a number of rocks, sticks and grasses that are exposed or right beneath the surface.  Significant snow is forecast for the next...
