[ 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!

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.

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.

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?

Rock Lake received an additional 6" of snowfall which brings the total to just a bit below ridiculous for December. All the sections of trail were groomed and tracked and it's looking very good out there. Special thank you to our new grooming volunteer Dave, who came out and helped get the trail ready for the weekend. Please use caution at the Rock Lake Rd crossings on the 7 Km and 11 Km loops, as there are logging trucks hauling wood out of that area on the road. Come on out and enjoy this "classic" trail system.

We skied out of parking lot on a freshly rolled trail (no tracks) and the first tracks set were on the small Rock Lake spur. But the upper end (16k loop) was tracked down to the first cutoff, where for some unknown reason the groomer followed the cutoff back to the one-way outbound trail, leaving us to flounder in 5" of fresh fluff. So skiing was not great today, but the groomer said they would finish the entire system today.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Rock Lake received 8 more inches of beautiful snow. The trail was packed and all loops were groomed Tuesday. The tracks and trail are in excellent condition. Please use caution at the Rock Lake Rd crossings on the 7 Km and 11 Km loops, as there are logging trucks hauling wood out of that area on the road. The road has been plowed, so there is a bit of berm to go over to get back on the trail. Enjoy!
