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!

  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.
