[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
All of the trails have new tracks. The 5” of new, wet snow were combed out and new tracks set today. Tracks look great and the woods is gorgeous with the snow hanging on the branches. If the slightly below freezing temperatures hold, skiing should be excellent.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
All of the trails received new tracks today. There was about 8” of fluffy, new snow that got compacted and then tracked nicely, burying all of the fallen oak leaves and twigs. It should set up well overnight for good skiing. It was a treat to see that someone had deep-snow skied all of the inner loops before I had a chance to groom then. Just like the old days.

Grooming

New tracks were set on the Drummond Ski Trails today. The latest few inches of fluffy snow were incorporated with the old surface and then tracked. There are still numerous oak leaves that need additional snow in order to be buried, but the tracks look good and the surface is smoother.

Fun skiing on my first visit to these trails. Skied Boulevard, NCT, and Jackrabbit trails. Excellent grooming and coverage.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
All of the Drummond Ski Trails have new tracks set. Thanks to Jesse, the 5” of fluffy, new, dry snow was incorporated into the existing damp base with some very nice tracks. As of noon today the parking lot had not been plowed.

New tracks have been set on Antler, the Boulevard as far as Jackrabbit, and all of Jackrabbit. The Racetrack, Playground, Antler Chute and the rest of the Boulevard have been rolled, but no tracks set. As soon as the deep base has set up, we'll set tracks on the rest. There is a lot of snow out there! Today's winds have brought down plenty of debris on the trails, especially oak leaves. In many places, the recent heavy snows have laid the brush along the trail down into the trail, making ducking and dodging a must until they stand up again. Thanks to crews from the Washburn Forest Service, all of the downed trees have been cut and removed.

Tracks were set on parts of the Drummond Ski Trail today. The Boulevard is single tracked as far as Jackrabbit. The whole length of Jackrabbit is tracked, as is Antler. There are pine needles and branch debris in places, but the tracks are good throughout. As more of the downed trees are cleared, we'll compact and set track on the rest. There is plenty of snow and a good base.

The Boulevard as far as Jackrabbit, Jackrabbit itself and Antler have been rolled. The Antler Chute, Racetrack, Playground, and Boulevard beyond Jackrabbit still have deep snow and may have trees blocking the trail. Dale and I cleared another half dozen trees that had succumbed to the heavy snow load of the past few weeks and rolled the trails that are open. The rolled base is quite soft and needs to be further widened and compacted before we can set tracks. The woods are beautiful with a heavy snow load on all the trees, but that early deep snow broke numerous conifers, buried them, and made grooming difficult.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Everyone is digging out from the weekend. We didn't finish in the money for snowfall in Drummond, but at 18" were at least honorable mention. That, on top of the 9" or so from two days earlier is taking time to dig out and clear roads and parking lots. Washburn is listed at 31" of snow. That amount of snow will take some rolling and compacting and hopefully not getting stuck in deep drifts. The Town of Drummond hopes to have the parking lot at the trailhead plowed by Tuesday. We'll get our equipment out there and begin grooming on Thursday.
