Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails: Closed, B skis ]
  With the current rain and forecast highs in the 40s or 50s for the next ten days, we are suspending our grooming of cross country trails for the season. There is a lot of snow still out there, but it is already getting thin in spots and portions of the golf course will start to thaw very quickly. It will also be very hard on our equipment to try and grind up any slush that refreezes into ice. Even if we get a significant snowfall in the coming weeks we do not intend to groom again this season. In the coming days we will put away all of our equipment for the season and start preparing for golf at all of our courses.

  Como was rolled Sunday evening. Result is a skiable but incredibly variable course - a constantly changing mix of undulating / icy / drifted / firm / slow / fast .... Enjoyable as long as you're light on your feet. No classic track yet, but a wide skate lane.

  I finished just after 4:30 pm. The groomers were out on a snowmobile starting to groom. I was within 5 minutes of the snowmobile at the end of my ski and was finding some drifting in high-wind areas. As should be expected, skiing in their track was better than breaking track, but still not full corduroy with a track. I did see the snowmobile go around 2 more times pulling a roller but did not ski the rolled trail. I am not sure if they came back to set track or not.

  Nothing groomed at 3 PM. Bad drifting everywhere. Classical skiing you had to break trail, skaters had no chance. Left at 4:30 still no grooming. Disappointing.

  Conditions at Como are still really good. I skated a couple laps around 11:00am, skate deck is wide and firm. The snow has a few dirty/debris spots, but they are easy to miss. It was windy, but there wasn't drifting since the snow is pretty consolidated at this point. I wouldn't hesitate to use good skis. The classic tracks mostly looked pretty good, they were washed out on some of the hills. Thanks to the groomers for keeping up the late season grooming!
