Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  All trails were dragged and tracks are still solid. Even with the warm temperatures, the trails at Swedetown are holding up well, but expect some debris on wooded trails such as Powderhouse and Pine, and beware of the occasional thin spot in places. Grooming completed at 9:30 am.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  No grooming done today, and minimal grooming will be done throughout the week to preserve the base on the trails. All trails will be dragged and tracked on Saturday morning for the weekend. Expect to find some thin spots in areas, especially in wooded areas where there isn't as much snow.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  All trails dragged and tracked, including all of Powderhouse as well as Papa Bear. Get yer thrills on Flamingo hill, but be careful, as it is a little rough yet! Take Fido/Fidette out for a walk on the Dog Loops: they are open, but still a bit damp in spots. The snow bike trail has been freshly groomed as well, so there is truly something for everyone at STC today! Grooming completed at 11:00 am.

  Sorry for the late report folks, but it was a long day! All of the new snow from Wednesday night was rolled today, and limited classic tracks were set. All trails will be dragged on Friday, and tracks will be set on all trails. The new snow has allowed us to reopen Powderhouse Field and Papa Bear, as well as Flamingo Hill, but Flamingo is still thin and a bit rough, so use caution!
The Multipurpose (Dog) Loops will be opened tomorrow--stay tuned for an update on that.
The snow bike trail was a bit soft today, so a second grooming pass was done later in the day to get the trail to firm up. Low pressure is the way to go right now!
Santa, all we want for Christmas is a little more of that Lake Effect Snow! Well, maybe a lot...

  All trails dragged and tracked, with the exception of Powderhouse field and Papa Bear. Generally good conditions, but there are some thin spots. The snow bike trail was freshly groomed this morning and is getting firmer every day. Grooming completed at 10:00 am.
