Baldy’s Fall Manicure is Underway
Cutting the grass and brush four to six inches on the runs at this time of year allows the grass seed and "clippings" to get spread over the runs creating a thick grass mat that allows the slope to become more stable during the rainy/early snow season. It also reduces erosion damage and minimizes run off.
First snows will now make contact with the ground to create an ice bond. This eliminates air pockets between the dirt and snow allowing for the snow pack to remain dense and durable.
Although it is only early October, Baldy’s slopes are groomed and waiting for their first coating of snow.
