  The trails were freshly groomed. I skate skied the entire trail system first, other than the classic only Homestead and Spruce Hills classic only trails. I was the first skater on the freshly groomed skate deck. I found the skate deck to be medium in firmness. The skate deck was of medium speed. The only problem I encountered was drifts along the connecting link to the Turtle lot. It was a perfect day for skiing with clear skies and temperatures in the high twenties. I changed into my classic skis and skied the purple and orange loops out to the Homestead trail. I then connected with Spruce Hills to complete a loop back to the cabin. The track was firm but again, speed was about medium. It was the groomer's report from Sunday that prompted me to come and ski Mecca today. I appreciate the reports. Please keep them coming.

  We got out today after it quit snowing and got almost everything groomed. We need to set track on the single track trails and on Moose loop. Grooming plan: That work should be done by 8:00 am on Monday.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  We got a hand from Brian of the Mercer Sno Goers snowmobile club to open a severely drifted area we needed to access to the Voss Lake section of our trails. We got over and rolled all Voss lake trails yesterday and groomed our complete trail system this morning. All trails are in great shape. Thanks for your patience. Get out and enjoy the spring bonus skiing we are getting this year.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  The trail was groomed and tracked this morning and are in great condition. Everything on the East side of the bridge was finished but the only part groomed on the West side is the part of the Osprey loop that is in the woods. From the old warming cabin to where the Bluebird ties in. We will continue to work on the Little Turtle end of the trail early next week, and it should be in excellent shape by mid week. See you on the trails.

  Skied the wolf and moose loop right around sunset. Tracks were firm but slow due to the cold temps (4F). Skate lane very firm and nicely groomed. So much snow-so beautiful!
