Mother nature delivered exactly what we needed for some great skiing at Rock Lake this week. Rock Lake received about 3-4 inches of new snow. All the loops were groomed and tracks set today. Tracks set up nicely, and the trail is in excellent condition. Get out there and enjoy the beautiful woods and your public lands!

We skied the full 16 km loop. Trails were very icy and hard packed. The last half of the ski the grooming fell apart. Most of the downhills had kick outs, shimmys, or were mushed out. For some reason many of the downhills had three tracks that ended in switch yards at the bottom. I'd say that the trails need some fresh snow and a new grooming.

Rock Lake received just over an inch of snow yesterday. We were able to scratch up the hard icy old tracks, and set new tracks. Overall, the new tracks are in great shape, and were solid with the cold temps! One more week left to train for the big race! Enjoy!

The warm thaw last Sunday made the trail a hard block of ice. We attempted to break up the old tracks and set new tracks today, but it was doing more damage than good. A portion of the 2 Km loop is where we attempted to set new tracks, and they are shallow. The rest of the tracks are good, but icy. Trails will be groomed again when we get more snow.

Another great day of grooming out on Rock Lake trails. Special thanks to Jerome for volunteering and getting trained in on grooming! We combed in about 2 inches of new snow and set new tracks on all of the loops. The uphills are nice and wide for herringboning, and the tracks should set up nicely tonight. Hope you can get out on this classic trail and enjoy the quiet woods!

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.

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 ;-)

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!
