Trails at Lake Como currently have good snow coverage, and are well packed powder. Conditions are good for skiing with classic skis or metal edge touring skis. Skate skiing is possible from the trailhead up 550 to the middle road junction, but it is definitely advanced conditions. We are planning on grooming later this week, but the exact timing depends on weather.
We are going to hold off on grooming Lower Road(550a) for now. The amount of truck traffic on it means any grooming is a waste of resources. We are working with the USFS on a solution to keeping wheeled motorized vehicles off it, and if that happens, or if the snowpack gets deep enough to keep trucks out we will start grooming it again. Unfortunately this means there are no beginner/green groomed trails at Como for now.
