Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Grooming plans: We will be working on the Red Cedar throughout the week. Sunday's storm brought down branches and leaves which when added to the new snow and significant drifting has made the trail a mess.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  The Red Cedar is groomed and tracked from Menomonie to Downsville with tracks on both sides of the trail from Menomonie to Irvington. Again it is a little narrower than I like on that stretch as with all the snow it is tough to know exactly where the trail is. From Irvington to Downsville I only set a track on the river side so skating will be better on that stretch.

  I skate skied the Irvington to Downsville stretch of trail this evening. The skate deck set up nicely throughout the day after the trail was groomed. I jumped in the tracks a couple times and it felt like I had good glide in the tracks as well. Excellent skiing conditions out there!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Groomed and set track on both sides of the trail from Menomonie to Irvington. That section looked very good although it is a little narrower than usual for skating as with all the snow it is a work in progress to get the trail back to normal width. Due to slush at about the 1/2 mile mark and some slush at the ice wall we cannot use our roller so it will take a few times grooming to widen - skiers can get around the slush. I set a single track from Irvington to Downsville with a wider skating lane and that looked really nice. Enjoy the weekend skiing.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  We will be working on the trail throughout the week as with all of the snow it is extremely soft and it will take us some time. We used the snowmobile to pack this morning and we will roll the trail late tomorrow. Our plan is to groom and track Friday morning to make sure it is ready for the weekend.
