  Skied the entire trail, excellent condition! All classical tracks. Looks like a few deer also enjoyed the trails, that was the only "damage".

  It's been 10 long years since I've skied Hiram. It didn't disappoint! Perfectly groomed and such a fun trail. I think it may be my favorite. Thank you groomers!

Firsthand Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Groomed today and set new track since it finally warmed up enough for the snowmobile to start. The track is a little ragged in places because of chunks of ice getting stuck in the cutters on the track setter and there are leaves and needles mixed into the snow in some places from the strong winds earlier this week but over all it turned out pretty good. The track was firming up well when I skied after grooming and the snow was fairly fast even with the below zero temps. It should be good skiing this weekend, providing the deer don't do to much damage, so get out and enjoy the milder temperatures.

  Good skiing conditions today at Hiram. The new track setup firm over night with only a few places where it is a little shallow but still deep enough to hold the skis. The oak leaves have been pretty well covered up. The snow was a little slow with the cold temps but still a fun ski. Lots of blue sky, sunshine and clean white snow made for a beautiful afternoon on the trail. Get out and enjoy some good skiing tomorrow.

Firsthand Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Beautiful afternoon for skiing today with lots of sunshine and no wind. There was around 1" of new snow and many oak leaves in some places after the strong winds Thursday. It was slow skiing today with the new snow and the subzero temps but still a nice day to be in the quiet woods. With the little bit of new snow the track was still somewhat soft and unstable.
With the track still being fairly soft and the 1" or so of new snow I decided to reset the track after skiing today. It should have also covered up some of the leaves that had collected in the old track after the strong winds Thursday. I am not sure how the track turned out overall since it was dark by the time I finished this evening. Hopefully it turned out well and will be good skiing this weekend.
