  Snow hasn't arrived yet in the twin ports so we've got a full till and fresh track set for those looking to get some pre Birkie k in before the storm comes! Everything has set up solid and is looking good. Once the snow does come we'll be out periodically to do some packing and a refresh of classic tracks in the afternoon.

  Things definitely firmed up last night with the dive below the zero mark on the thermometers, but not too much to cause any issues with the snow quality. Of greater concern is wind debris and drifting; we had some 20ish mph winds come through all last night and into the morning, so unfortunately there is a significant amount of woody debris on many sections of the trail, predominantly around the stadium area. The further you head up into the woods the less debris there is. I have good skis marked since the snow is still great, but I would err to the side of caution in your ski selection. There are some smaller wind drifts out in the stadium and small pockets of trail, the largest ones have been knocked down. Tracks were set after the wind, so there is less debris in there, but there are still some unavoidable sections.

  Mother Nature has delivered! The center is looking beautiful and this is by far the best snow of the year. The trails have a full till and track set and we've even got the addition of some "Nordic cross" features courtesy of St. Scholastica in the stadium. The best skiing of the year is going on right now!

  Let it snow! As we continue to receive the flakes, we will not be doing full grooming (aside from some packing loops perhaps) until the system passes through. We did do a full pack/till yesterday with the fluffy 4-5", and we are expecting more snow on top of that through today. Once the new snow gets some time to settle and bind with the old, we should have some stellar conditions! Plans are to have a full till tonight and set tracks tomorrow morning.

  It's good to see snow again! We received approximately 2" overnight into this morning, and provided some good material to refresh the system. Skate deck and tracks are set, and fairly solid. Given a couple hours, things should be very solid. It's beautiful out there and today's the day to go! We will not be re-grooming until at least Thursday depending on weather, as this extreme cold is not very kind to machinery and man alike. Get some good laps at GANC!
