what a difference with two days, 1+ inches of snow, and a good grooming job. It was beautiful and a great track forest litter covered.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
I groomed Goose Lake this morning. We had 1-2” of new snow. Just enough to cover up most of the trash. Tracks are thin in spots under pines and where there was a lot of skiers herringbone up the hills. B skis are good to go for sure, since there are no bare spots. Good skis can be used if you careful for the remaining trash and thin spots.

Lots of forest litter. The tracks were very firm just need a little bit more snow. Very nice trail system, lots of hills, all of them were rated easy.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
I groomed Goose Lake this morning and set track. 95% of the trail has very nice tracks. Under the pines there spots that the tracks are shallow and/or now snow in bottom of track and these track area need to be skied out of the tracks. All three loops on the east side are groomed along with the whole west outer loop. I would recommend using B skis are there are only 2-3” of base.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Today after another 3” of snow last night Todd Martin and I roller compacting the Goose Lake Trail. The first 3 loops on the east side are all compacted. The whole outer loop on the west side is also compacted. We didn’t set tracks as the compacted base is only 2” deep. While there is leaves and pine needles exposed there were not any bare spots. I recommend B skis but if you can ski around needles and leaves, good skis should be good to use too.
