Beautiful tracks laid today! Loops that were tracked for classic are Beginners loop, Connectors loop (may have boot tracks near buildings from school kids)and Middle Loop. Grooming plans: I will lay tracks for classic and smooth a lane for skate tomorrow afternoon on Bass Pond. Still working hard to clear brush off north and grouse loops, almost there!

Making progress! Trails that were tracked for classic skiing this morning are: -Beginners Ski Loop -Connectors Loop running from Beginners Loop to Middle Loop -Middle Loop -Connectors Loop running from building, to the Bog, to Nature Center Dr. Use B skis if you have them, plenty of debris on trails on some spots. It wasn't great snow to lay tracks in, but hey at least we are making headway on the trails! There is a loop rolled on Bass Pond that has one classic lane tracked, and a very wide lane for skate skiing.

Rolled and tracked the "beginners ski loop" and the spur off the beginners loop that goes to the south side of the building. I semi cleared and rollled the "connectors loop" to the range road. I would advise not skiing that portion as widow makers and down branches are present. Any help clearing would be appreciated. Clearing the rest of the trails is going to take a week or more.
