Rock Lake was nothing short of spectacular this morning. My wife and I hadn't been there in quite a while, and I had almost forgotten how utterly gorgeous this place is. The temp was perfect, there was a coating of fresh snow on the thinnest of branches, and we didn't see another soul in the woods. If you haven't visited this NW Wisconsin, classic-only gem of a system, you should.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Rock Lake trails received about 2-3 inches of new snow this week. I went out there this morning before 6 AM to get it groomed before it got to warm. I reset tracks on all of the loops but the Rock Lake loop. The tracks looked great, but will be soft with the warm temperatures. Hope you can get out there this weekend and enjoy this mild weather!

I skied the trail this morning. Very good tracks, a firm base, and only a little debris in the tracks. This is my favorite trail for classic, the best around. Skiers need to rediscover the USFS trails. This one and Mukwonago. The maintenance and grooming is as good as it was years ago, well, almost ;-)

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Rock Lake received 6-8 inches of new fluffy snow. The trails were all packed this morning with the snowmobile. We then groomed the trails with 2 passes and set tracks. The grooming conditions were perfect today! All the previous debris is covered and the tracks looked great. There were some skiers using the trails right after we groomed, so the tracks might we worn in some places. Hope you can get out there and enjoy this wonderful trail system on your public land!

Grooming

I groomed in the couple inches of snow that Rock Lake received this week. I started later in the morning in the hopes to work in the snow that was falling today. Most of the debris is covered up and worked into the trail. Enjoy!

All loops at Rock Lake got a fresh grooming today. The tracks will be soft until they freeze up. There was a lot of pine needles, oak leaves and little seeds on the trails from the winds last night. It should be a great week to get out skiing. Enjoy!

Pretty good conditions! Icy in spots and soft in others, but over all quite enjoyable. Only the 11k loop is groomed, but other loops have at least been skied in a bit.

Grooming

Happy New Years skiers! We've been short staffed over the Holidays, so Rock Lake was only partially groomed today. We plan to be back to more consistent grooming on Monday. I set tracks all the way around on the 11 Km loop. I did not have time to do the cut acrosses, but the outer trails are groomed up to the 11 Km, and the returns back to the parking lot are all groomed. There was about 3 inches of new snow out there. Skiers have been using the other parts of the trail that I didn't have time to groom today, so there are user made tracks on the rest of the system.

I called the USFS at 9:45 a.m. today to ask them about grooming. They said they would be grooming today and would post an update later.

Grooming

Rock Lake had received a couple more inches of new fluffy snow. We regroomed and set tracks on the whole trail system today. A special thank you to volunteer groomer Dave for helping us out with grooming today in the cold! We were able to get the uphills a little wider for those tough climbs up with skis on. The classic tracks are in excellent shape, and the snow base is as deep as its ever been in December! Get out there and enjoy this beautiful area. What's your favorite loop?
