Notes: This was the first week we were able to hold the Tuesday Night Lights event this season due to the low snow conditions. The City of Cloquet did an excellent job of grooming the small amount of new snow on the trail. Some sections are in good condition (The Swamp, The Ledge, Anikin Alley) while anywhere under the pine trees it is a bit thin and caution is advised.
Next Event: We have two more Tuesdays on the schedule, January 31 and February 7. Gather at the Spafford Chalet between 6:15-6:30 p.m., skiing begins about 6:45 p.m. or when we are ready. Low-key, fun, free, and no trail fees required.
