Excellent conditions today! Lots of new snow groomed up really well. Did most of the single track classic trails: Hemlock, Jack Pine, White Pine, down to Otter Slide, Wolf Tracks, and then checked out the new Puumala section --- very nice! Back on sunset to round out the sunny day. Tracks were firm. Pole plants good. Spring skiing is here!

Grooming

We had a full groom team out this early morning. The two Pisten Bullies took care of all the combo trails and Wide Track and "Partner" took care of all single tracks. The 8-10 inches of new snow groomed up well from yesterday. Looks like we should have another week of skiing without bare spots.

Two classic only groomers were out at 11 AM, "Partner" and "Pig Heart" groomed till 4 PM. Bully's are in their stalls in the Barn. 8-10 inches of new snow arrived today! Looks like we are good now till closing March 21. Grooming plans: We will all be out in the early morning.

What a great day of skiing today. Nice weather, good snow, happy skiers! Cousin Jason Slining doing his “Birkie” at ABR. We groomed up 84 km of trail this morning and had some great conditions. Looks like the snow will last for another few weeks based on forecast and base thickness.

Yet another great day at ABR. Skied all the classic-only trails, including the new Puumala trails which are super fun and flowing. After completing my comprehensive of the classic trails, I skated with an old friend completing his 33rd Birkie. Quite a number of folks completing Birkie events with fabulous conditions at ABR.

We picked up another inch of snow last night - unexpected but welcome. We had two of us out grooming with the two PB's . 50 km of the combination trails this morning and all of the Birkie / Korte/ Prine Haakon course.  About 20-30 folks skiing their virtual races during the day. Skiing was great today. We have three of us heading out to touch up skate lanes on the combination trails and reset classic only trails early in the morning.

Ski conditions have been excellent all week. Classic trails like River and Hemlock were a bit slow and soft today because of new snow.
