Conditions are excellent! The biathlon trails are all firm with an inch of new snow on top, so I left those as they were. The skate lanes on the Grant-In-Aid side were still really soft and interrupted by twin tracks from the JNQ races last weekend, so I tilled them with the Pistenbully and set a new track. This includes Main Street, Widow's Run, Otter Slide, Backtrack, and Exit Ramp. Enjoy!

Excellent Pisten Bully grooming for CXC races on Saturday to pack a foot of new snowfall the night before and during the race. Firm skate lane for Saturday and then double tracks set for the classic race on Sunday. Some short sections of trail (ie Exit Ramp) not used for the race course are packed but soft.

Groomed the entire system of trails after 2” new snow Thursday. Base is really getting to be pretty good— should be great for the upcoming races on Jan 18-19. Skate lane is smooth, and track is set.

Gliding over an inch of new soft powder made for some great downhill descents with soft landings. A little extra work uphill but snow temps were upper 20's so snow was slippery and fast and fun! Backtrack did not look PB groomed so I skipped that one. Only one other skier (Vlad) and I enjoying the white wilderness morning.

Met the big Pisten Bully grooming. Most of the trails were firm and beautifully set with classic tracks and skate lane. A few west trails yet to be done with snowmobile: Otter Slide, Backtrack and Widow's Run. Fantastic conditions after some very challenging snow events this week.

Grooming

Got out and groomed the wet, heavy new snow with the Pistenbully. We were planning on doing some of the trails by snowmobile, but that will have to wait because our Alpine snowmobile groomer does not steer in this type of snow. The good news is that one pass in the Pistenbully leaves the trail firm and quite ideal for skating as the snow is pretty dense. Plan to come out Monday morning and finish the rest of the system that the Pistenbully can groom.

Half inch of snow crust made for fast skiing with some risk of catching an edge on the downhills on this 30 degree mild December day.

Recent grooming brought up a dirt and debris on a few turns on the lower hills which did not have man-made snow on them, but natural snow on the the upper and west trails were groomed to perfection for skate skiing and a classic track was set. Glorious 20 degree day!
