Afternoon
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Trails are all groomed and in good condition. The cold weather turned a lot of snow into sugar, so some sections are a bit soft. Hopefully they'll set up nicely overnight. The Forest History Center parking lot is currently open on weekends, so trails can be accessed from our parking lot, or from the 14th St Sylvan Point parking lot. Get out and enjoy the trails!

Afternoon
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
We groomed and set tracks on the River trail, the Swamp trail, and all the way out to Sylvan Point, in the afternoon. The snow has set up nicely overnight. Trails are in very good shape with the exception of a lot of wind blown pine needles in the tracks. We are still clearing trees on the Forest of Today Trail on the far west side of the property.

Started at Sylvan Point trailhead and created tracks to parts of FHC trails. Some areas had pine bows and debris however it was beautiful snowy landscape.

I have been working on packing and clearing downed and overhanging trees. The river trail is packed but not groomed, as is the trail out to Sylvan point. No tracks set yet.
