MECCA received 2" new snow since Wednesday. Groomers were out Thursday renovating the trails, set new tracks and combed the skate lanes. Classic tracks carved in nicely leaving deep rails. Skate lanes are firm with a nicely combed surface. Overall conditions very good to excellent. Snowshoe trail loops also very inviting.

Our groomer was out early today and set new tracks on Moose.  Tracks are holding nicely on the rest of the trails due to the colder weather.  The grooming plan is to go out on Thursday to renovate the entire 21K trail system, set new tracks and comb the skate lane.   Snowshoe trails 1,2 and 3 mile loops are in great shape.

With the recent snow and dedicated grooming the skate deck was in very good shape. Minimal debris on the trail. Tracks looked like they were also in good shape. A few spots had some slight drifting from the high winds.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
MECCA Trails got 8" of Champaign powder Wednesday. All trails were packed and rolled. Grooming plans: The groomers plan to be back on the trails Thursday, first setting tracks, then combing the skate lane. The surface is soft, but we plan to continue grooming and as it stays cold it will firm up.

A gem of a place to ski. Grooming produced a skate deck that was firm and surprisingly fast given the temperature. Classic tracks were also very good.
