Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Classic skis with special green made for great kick but not much glide due to zero degree temps. All trails groomed and tracked but we did only Prelude and Red Pine Junction with kids. Sun shining = great skiing!

A couple inches of new fluffy snow in the tracks all the way to Tower and back made for really fun riding the rails safely on the curvy downhills! Met one of the new groomer operators as he finished Lake Loop. Grooming plans: More grooming after the next snowfall.

All sections of the trail have been groomed and track set on all trail sections; Prelude, Lake Loop and Tower end. I skied the Lake Loop and Prelude today and it skied very well. Thanks to new groomers Dave and Tony for their assistance and hard work.

Got in a great skate early morning before heavy wet snow falling slowed us up. About 2 inches had fallen up by the time we finished.

Very good conditions on a cold, clear Friday morning. Blueberry had recently been groomed and cleared. Only a short section on the far end of the trail near the cell tower was not groomed. There were several trees down there preventing the groomer from getting through. The classic tracks were in a good shape and the skating lanes were good also, though just bit crunchy. Nice day to be out.

Thanks to more volunteers packing, clearing, cutting, grooming and setting track, I had a wonderful fun classic ski past H to I and back to trailhead! Sun shining! One beautiful tunnel of trees to ski under. Only one short segment to Tower End yet to be cleared and packed.

What a great ski trail! And best warming hut ever! Little bit of light snow over some pretty good grooming. Looking forward to the opening of the last segment. Huge thank you to all the folks that maintain and support this trail system!
