  Skied Cedar and Brownie today around 11am. Classic trails were very washed out. It was doable, but slow. Some debris on the trails, too. Hopefully they will be groomed after the next snowfall. It was still a beautiful day, though!

  Skied Brownie and Cedar around 12:30 pm today. Disappointed to find that it appears to have been a few days since they were groomed. Trails in rough shape from lots of foot traffic, fat bikes, and blowing snow.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  Repaired, rolled, groomed and tracked all the rest of Brownie, Cedar and the land segments. Trails are now in good shape, with some drifting still ongoing. We are still not able to groom Isles and Maka Ska until we are cleared for safety through the channels.

  Brownie Lake and the hill to 394 was in excellent shape with fresh grooming for skate and classic. However, Cedar Lake did not appear to be groomed as of about 2pm. I ran into a snowmobile heading toward Cedar Lake, so perhaps it will be groomed soon. Also, be careful on the 394 overpass, there were some nasty rocks and a lot of "snirt" sprayed everywhere from the road snowplowing.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  We groomed this morning and all was good. We were hoping to groom tonight but the Loppet needed our sled so not grooming tomorrow. Coverage is good and still no grooming on Isles or Bde Maka Ska. We will get out and groom on Sunday morning.
