Trail was groomed and tracked in the afternoon when the wind picked up. About an inch of new snow fell overnight and there was some drifting from the college property. Manka continues to see a lot of use.

With a lot of use and an inch or two of snow overnight, a touch up was needed. The deck set up nicely after the big dump last week. The trails looks great!

Grooming

We received 11" snow over the last two days and temps did not get above zero today. It took multiple passes to pack the dry snow and a couple extra rounds with the Tidd to get a skate lane and track set. Grooming plans: It will take another day of cold temps to get things to set up and we can re-groom.

A glorious Christmas Eve morning with 2" of fresh snow. Warm temps but the trail is holding up well. Groomed and set track with holiday skiers waiting to go. Merry Christmas!

Grooming

After several light snowfalls we were able to groom and set track with good results. Looks great with no debris or bare ground showing after the December thaw. Manka appears to be getting steady use.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
We lost some ground in the recent warm up and rain event, but the base stayed frozen. Unfortunately we didn't get enough snow to set a decent track and there are a few thin spots in the skate deck. Good skis if you're careful, B skis recommended. Trail lights were reset. Just need snow!

Grooming

After 5" new snow we have complete coverage and enough snow to get a thin track set. Snow is very dry and did not set up, but still very skiable. Use your good skis!

Grooming

Trail is cleared after storm damage to trees. Pulled the Tidd over 5" loose snow to open the season. Skate deck is a little bumpy with some remaining debris from storm damage, but skiable. One skier out when I left.
