Grooming 
[ Trails: Closed, B skis ]
  Snowflake is CLOSED today due to the warm temps, wet conditions, and fragility of the snow base. Our base is still solid, and we are preserving it for the post-thaw. We will be CLOSED again Sunday for the same reasons, but are optimistic about being open to MEMBERS by Tuesday. Will update as conditions change.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  Our 5K and 10K trails remain snow-covered, and the base is holding-up. Both trails were icy this morning, but have softened as the day goes on. Because we are unwilling to take the grooming equipment onto the soft, wet snow in above-freezing temps, the downhill turn sections are rutted and somewhat "dicey" this morning. In expectation of a return to winter conditions, and in order to preserve our base, we have decided to postpone grooming until night-time temps return to sub-freezing. We remain open today, but will be closed on Saturday, Jan 21st, due to the forecast wet weather. We will post our open/closed status for Sunday as we see what Saturday brings.

  I did some classic skiing on the Jane 5K loop from mid to very late afternoon. The track is firm and about 80 to 90% of perfect. Lotsa fun skiing! The high temp there was about 32 degrees. The snow was holding up well. No evidence of melting, except maybe a little in the sun. Purple wax gave me good grip. I'll go back tomorrow in the morning and should have another good ski!

  Amazing classic tracks - firm, deep, solid walls. Skied the 10K then onto the 5K and only left the tracks twice (the hard turns on "Tim's Turn" and onto "Special K". The skate lane had been groomed last night and was generally corduroy. Best day of skiing so far this season.

  The trails at Snowflake are in great condition. Skate lane is packed powder and very smooth. The track was set yesterday with a new track setter yielding even tracks at perfect depth. Kudos to John and Jim for the fine grooming this season.
