Skated Irvington to Downsville and the deck is holding up great with all the low temps we've had. Classic track looked to be in good shape too.

Blue extra day. Tracks starting to get filled in with new and drifting snow this morning. Making a nice addition to base. No bare spots anywhere Irvington to Downsville. Tracks still quite manageable but may get covered depending on new fall snow depth.

An excellent day on the trail, with double track and money of room for skate for three straight miles from the Menomonie trailhead next to Lucette Brewing to the bridge. Grooming was fantastic and tracks were in great shape, especially considering how little snow we have currently. One or two very minimal moments of seeds and a thin branch, but nothing that couldn't be avoided. Full coverage until the bridge, then to go further you will need to take skis off for a short stretch below the bridge (no snow there). Hearty thanks to the amazing groomers!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
The Red Cedar trail was groomed for skating and tracked for classic this morning from Menomonie to Downsville. There has been 5 to 6 inches of new snow in the last couple of days over a mixed ice base. Both the skating lane and classic tracks appear to be in good condition. Classic tracks were set on only one side of the trail from Irvington to Downsville making for a wider skate lane.

Grooming

The 12+ inches was packed using the snowmobile from Menomonie to Downsville. We rolled from Menomonie to Irvington however we had a bit of trouble with the roller so it is rather uneven. Grooming plans: We will be working on the trail more in the next few days.
