Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  All trails are, at a minimum, packed. Did not yet groom out the Bittersweet loop on top of the hill but hope to do it soon. The 1.5km loop with machine-made snow was groomed and tracked with the Pistenbully, and the Pistenbully also ventured into other parts of the biathlon trails where snow was not made in November. We packed the Grant-In-Aid trails and came around for a second pass with the Tidd-Tech groomer. We were hoping to get a foot of snow, which would have allowed us to groom the entire thing with the Pistenbully, but we got half that, which is enough to use the snowmobile groomer. There's a bit of vegetation showing through the groomed snow in places, but the coverage is otherwise quite solid, so you can get through it with good skis.

  Skiing was great with the new snow groomed into the man-made snow. Classic tracks set. With snow falling many skiers were gliding around both classic and skate. Upper GIA trails were snow covered with some grass sticking up. Grooming plans: Will be packed on Sunday.

  Two inches of snow on top of man-made snow made for good classic and skate skiing on the 2k trail. The frozen icy ruts had been tilled the day before but there are still some icy corners on the small downhills. A little more snow is needed before much more of the trail system is open, but this is great to be able to ski now!

  Rain and freezing temps resulted in icy rutted trail conditions this morning. Hoping the groomer will till it up tonight. Sorry I missed the good conditions earlier!
