Notes

Some of the best trails in southern Minnesota. Tucked in the valley behind the school, the trails run around the northern slopes of the valley making them quite challenging and also well protected from the sun. Some lighted sections, and snowmaking operations.

All the trails were leveled and new track set late Friday night. Overnight temps should make them firm for all day Saturday. All the downhills on the sledding hill side of the trails also groomed out for those up to the challenge!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
With several inches of new wet snow yesterday everything was rolled and left to freeze overnight. Temps did not get as cold as we would have liked. Steve and I groomed the whole system this morning and it looks great but it is soft. Plans are to groom after dark tonight with the idea it will set up overnight. Tracks have been set on all trails including upper hillsides. The tracks are deep, clean, and soft in most places. The trails will ski in as more people are on them.

Bruce and I rolled all of the trails after 7" of wet snow. Now the snow needs to set up and dry out. Skiing today will be soft but the surroundings are beautiful! Grooming plans: Tomorrow morning we'll take the Ginzus out and groom again and set track.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Skate deck was groomed on all trails this morning and are looking good. Debris on the trails in places, twigs, leaves, and walnuts just need to be alert as it is mainly in a handful of areas. The classic tracks have not been touched by the groomers since they were set earlier in the week.
