We were blessed with only 5" of new snow out of this last system, so we went out Saturday night and got it leveled out and tracked.  Spent 9 1/2 hours getting rid of drifts in the open and doubling up on the deck to firm it up.  Met some skiers this morning who said it was perfect.  We aim to please, so come out and enjoy.  See you on the trail.
Don't forget the Candlelight next weekend.

All the trails were groomed and tracked with the new snow and are in excellent winter conditions.  We will continue to pack the race course to full width until race time but it will be groomed for best line classical until that weekend.  Come out and enjoy the great conditions.  See you on the trail!

Grooming

The trail was groomed Friday night for the weekend. The deck should be very firm with the cold temps Saturday morning. Track was reset with the renovators and is nice and deep, so should hold up for all the racers on their way home from the SISU to get a good cool down ski on their way home. See you on the trail!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Went out on the trail Friday night with our new G-2, and leveled and firmed up the deck for the weekend. Excellent conditions. New tracks were cut everywhere but the Spruce Hills and Homestead which have had little use since the Holiday and were in excellent condition already. The snowshoe trail is packed and in great condition also. We do allow snowshoe travel on the groomed ski trail, but ask that you stay to the edge away from the track. Under no circumstance is walking without snowshoes allowed.

We got out on the trail after the gorgeous snowfall we got on Monday. All trails have been groomed, and tracked this morning. It looks beautiful but will take a bit of time to set up, but don’t worry if you ski it out, we will go back out and reset as soon as possible. Enjoy the woods and snow and have a wonderful New Year. See you on the trail!

Observation 
[ Trails Open: All ]
Because of the warm weather the trails have become very icy and thus we are waiting to groom until we can actually cut into the surface. Please be careful if on the trails and consider going snowshoeing. We will keep you updated as time goes by.

All 21K groomed last night. I skied today and my friend skated. The tracks are excellent and the skate lane mostly firm, some places soft from the fresh snow.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Groomers were out late night taking care of the trail. All trails have been renovated and tracked for some of the greatest skiing of the season. With the moderating temps it is time to get the boards out and get yourself out in the woods. Snowshoe trails have been worked on and packed also. With the snow still hanging in the trees its a wonderland out there so get out and enjoy.
