Grooming

  Please stay off the groomed trails until we get below freezing temperatures. There are no track set and we have not groomed in a few days.

  Underlying ice protruding into fresh snow on top. Kudos to the groomers for setting track. Most was very skiable. A little more snow and it will be awesome.

  2-3" of new snow over an icy base. New snow has bonded to the icy base, our groomer is able to churn up ice from under the new snow to create good conditions. Shallow classic tracks are set on about 25% of the trails. Bicentennial trail has some overhanging tree limbs which are weighed down by the snow. Thanks to the other groomer who was out last night and this morning catching the snow at the right time. Get out and ski now.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
  Trails in the woods are a block of ice and dangerous. Golf course could be crust cruised. We cannot groom until we get more snow.

[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  Skated all trails at Hixon, including golf course. Despite temperature above freezing during the day, the cold snow remained a firm, fast, boilerplate skate deck. Classic tracks present, but are hard, glazed over and very shallow in a number of spots especially on the golf course. Some thin spots, dirt and sticks, but mostly avoidable. Skied at night with headlamp, so used B skis, but thin spots and sticks probably avoidable during daylight hours.
