Grooming Scheduling

  We have been getting a light snow all day, Angela and I were out checking the trails tonight with Darla and we are seeing decent coverage.  We have a groom crew scheduled in the morning to pack the trails and we hope to re-open soon.

Grooming Scheduling

  We closed today until we get more snow. The thin snow is not safe to ski on and grooming is not possible. We had a good week of early season skiing and had many happy customers. We hope to reopen Friday for skiing.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  The trail froze hard last night, down to 27F. We groomed last night as it was freezing and the trails froze up hard and fast. We regroomed about 1/3 of the trails this morning and waited for the sun to warm the rest up. By 10:30 some of the hills were still fast so we regroomed a few of the hills. The base is getting very thin with many bare spots ...but it is skiable. We are going out with three of us early in morning to regroom again Sunday morning. We expect conditions to be similar to this morning but we will try to make it a bit softer.
We expect to close Sunday late afternoon as the temps warm up and the trail melts out and then we plan to reopen Thursday or Friday when more snow arrives.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  Conditions: I am just coming in from scouting the trails and doing some preliminary grooming. The low areas were starting to show signs of wet, the up hills are getting chewed up a bit on Blueberry and the River Trail. Tonight's grooming smoothed these out and I expect them to freeze tonight. The bare spots 12 inch by 12 inch are more numerous...about 75 areas in the base 10 km loop....but they are small and you can ski around them easily. I think the skiing at 9 AM will be more favorable for the advanced skiers and the skiing later towards 11 AM  will be better for the recreational skiers. Tonight is forecast to freeze hard and we will lightly groom in the early morning to keep the base firm, it is flat from the grooming tonight and ruts are groomed out. We are grooming and skiing about 25 km for Saturday.
Looking ahead I see that Sunday we are probably OK until early afternoon. We do not think we will be open Monday thru Wednesday based on the forecast.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  We groomed up about 37 km  late last night as the temps dropped after another 4 inches of snow fell during the day yesterday. We woke up to another inch or  so on the trails and re-groomed again this time setting about 20 km of classic tracks. Skiers were out today and temps rose up in the hi 30's softened the base and opening up some wet spots. We plan to re-groom in the early morning. I expect some of  the k we groomed today to be deteriorated but am hoping most of the trails will re-groom after tonight's refreeze.
