Afternoon
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All ]
Received about 2" of fresh snow overnight. All trails were groomed this morning with tracks reset throughout. Excellent conditions. Trails will be a little soft so we ask dog owners not to run their dogs on the freshly groomed ski trails until they have set up. Your consideration will be appreciated.

Morning
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
All skate lanes have been refreshed this morning. They will be slightly chunky in some sections given the cold, hard snow we have to work with, but overall will be very good. Tracks are still in very good condition. Best snow conditions will be on the Training Loop and Papoose Trails.

The snow conditions were prefect. Fast, good kick, nice edging. The trails however could have used a freshening up; they were getting a little chewed up from heavy use. I'm glad they made the last section before the chalet 2-way.

Afternoon
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Training Loop, 6K, 8.5K and 11K Loops were groomed on Friday. Skate lanes were refreshed but not all track was reset if the old track was still in good condition. Setting new, quality track with old, hard snow in cold temperatures is a challenge and time consuming. What we didn't groom on Friday was last groomed on Wednesday and is still in very good condition.

Night
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Training Loop, 2.5K Loop and parts of the 8K and Papoose trails were groomed this afternoon/tonight with tracks reset. Conditions will be very good although persistent snow showers, and some minor drifting in open areas could impact conditions.

The classic tracks were great and solid. Skaters were pleased with the skate lanes. A light dusting of snow fell this morning which gave a bit more traction. Fat bike trail was well packed and fun.

Skied everything except the Out-and-back and the trail to Papoose parking lot. Trails that were groomed Sunday night were a bit firmer than what was groomed Monday morning. But all trails skied very well with recent grooming. Thanks.

Night
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Skate lanes were refreshed Sunday night on the 2.5K and 6K loops. Should be firm and fast with the cold temps. Short section of classical tracks were reset from the main trailhead, otherwise all remaining tracks are still in very good condition. Grooming plans: Skate lanes on all remaining trails will be refreshed Monday morning. A light dusting of snow on top of firm trails leaving very good skiing conditions.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Re-grooming after the weekend melting and subsequent freezing was completed this morning. Conditions are again excellent, as we have come to expect from the crew at WinMan. Classic tracks are deep and solid, and the skating deck is also solid. The glide was awesome, making for a fast ski around the loops on a perfect winter day. Essentially no tree debris.
