Keith Adelmeyer had it right when he said there was a sweet surprise today in the Butterfly Garden! Trails were excellently groomed and my son, wife and I had a wonderful ski. The superb grooming made for a reward after climbing Asthma Hill to get to the Butterfly Garden trail. Thanks for providing a "Coping With Covid" ski experience!

With the report of good conditions by the groomer this morning, I chose to ski the virtual Lapham Loppet and it was fast and controllable especially on the magic carpet. My time of 1:01:32 for the 7 laps (12K) was my fastest this season. Later skied the non manmade which also was groomed and it was good with still much of the corduroy visible and good coverage.

What sweet corduroy on the loop up top by the butterfly garden this morning! The PB groomed skate deck just up from the Homestead parking lot is worth checking out. With more Mother Nature snow in the forecast, I hope the Pisten Bully will be used to improve trail conditions on more segments of the ski trails. Thanks to the groomers, dedicated volunteers and all who continue to contribute to the operating expenses so skiers can enjoy the beautiful trails at Lapham.

Wow! I had a terrific ski up top in the Homestead section of Lapham. How pleasantly surprised I was to see fresh cordouroy tracks set by the new Piston Bully for the first time in that section of trail! Asthma Hill all the way through to the Butter Fly garden was groomed to perfection. Nice to see that community investment being used in other areas of Lapham when enough snow can make it possible without damage. Thank you to whomever groomed and thank you to Lapham Peak for being the best around.

I just came in off the man-made loop, the whole lighted loop. There’s a sweet little surprise up by the butterfly garden. Our sweet new Pisten Bully has really improved the ski trails with the 3 inches of snow we received yesterday. The DNR continues to groom the whole trail system and it also has greatly improved ski conditions.

New snow made for slower conditions and more work, at least for mere mortals like me. Loose layer of fresh snow on a firm base. Okay off the manmade snow loops, but still icy underneath the new snow, especially in the pine areas.

Grooming

Good morning. It was a magical, snowy, mystical morning while I was grooming. At times it was close to a white out. Sitting in the cab of our sweet new Pisten Bully grooming Snow as Mother Nature was showering the snow down upon us. I groomed and set tracks on the entire man-made loop. The DNR continues to groom the entire trail system off the man-made. Andrew was out grooming while I was grooming. It will be a winter wonderland at Lapham Peak State Park this morning. Come on out and enjoy skiing before the Packers kick some Bucs tail.

Perfect morning to do my virtual Lapham Loppet. Manmade snow trails were freshly groomed with the Pisten Bully, providing an excellent surface for skate and stride. Comfortable temps, bright sun, and very little wind made for ideal conditions. Does not get any better.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
I groomed and set tracks on all the man-made trails with our sweet new Pisten Bully early this morning. Our sweet PB was able to till the entire hard packed skate deck and icy tracks. The skiing today should be incredibly fun! The DNR continues to groom their entire trail system off the man-made. I would definitely use B skis or rock skis.

The warmth from yesterday followed by the cold last night froze the base and surface snow layer, but the ginzu grooming was able to loosen up just enough powdery snow to provide a good skating surface on the manmade snow loops. Downhills provide some excitement, and one climb up Tail End was enough for me - frozen hard. Wind still an issue, but direction has changed. It’s very good today and should be great tomorrow.
