Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Groomed and set new track at Hiram this morning after around 3 inches of snow yesterday. Most all the forest litter was covered up and the track was forming to the full depth of the track setter. Not sure how firm it will be this afternoon with the mild temps since I didn't ski right after I groomed. I wanted to let it set for a few hours before I ski on it this afternoon. Beautiful day to be in the woods, get out and enjoy.

Firsthand Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  I skied Hiram this afternoon to check it out after the inch or so of snow and the strong winds yesterday. In the more open areas the tracks were completely covered over and there were some scattered Oak leaves in the tracks that were not completely covered up. Plenty of deer damage in places also. I decided to make a single pass with the groomer and reset the track for the weekend. The track setter was icing up so the track did turn out as clean as I would like but for the most part it turned out well. With the cold temps tonight the track should set up firm. The overall conditions should be very good this weekend and make for some fun skiing. Get out and enjoy the winter wonderland if you are able to.

Firsthand Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Groomed and set new track at Hiram today after another 5 inches of new snow yesterday. Lots of snow in the woods. Track turned out well over all just a few ragged spots from ice chunks getting stuck in the track setter. Not much for forest litter since there has not been much wind lately. With the deep snow in the woods the deer are walking on the ski trail more this season but you can still ski over the damage they cause. I included some pictures so you can get a better idea how the conditions are. I skied it after the grooming was done and it was very good skiing. Get out and enjoy the good ski conditions while they last.

Firsthand Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Groomed and set track after 7 to 10 inches of new snow. It's a winter wonderland out there. There are scattered oak leaves and pine needles but not enough to be a problem. The track has some ragged spots once again from the track setter collecting ice chunks but over all the track turned out well. The deer have been using the trail a lot so there probably will be some damage from them in some places. I skied after I finished grooming and it was good skiing. The track should set up well overnight with the subzero temps. Get out and enjoy some good skiing and the beauty of the woods this weekend.

Firsthand Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Groomed and set new track at Hiram after 3-4 inches of new snow. There are some areas with oak leaves and pine needles mixed into the snow but not enough to cause a problem. Overall, the track turned out well but there are some ragged spots from ice chunks getting stuck in the cutters on the track setter. We are continuing to build up a good base with the regular snow falls we are getting so far this winter. I skied it after I had finished grooming and it was good skiing. The track was fairly firm already and the skis were getting good glide even with the cold temp. The deer were already walking on parts of the trail but not to bad yet. Get out and enjoy the great snow this winter!
