— The Steamboat Springs Nordic Council reported Wednesday morning that all 5 kilometers of cross-country skiing on Bruce’s Trail have opened thanks to 24 inches of accumulated snow above 9,300 feet on Rabbit Ears Pass.

Two feet of snow is sufficient to cover all hazards, but the groomed tracks remain on the soft side.

There are no fees for skiing on Bruce’s Trail, which is in the Routt National Forest. However, the Nordic Council accepts donations to cover the cost of grooming. Go to www.SteamboatXCski.org for more information.
