Grooming

I groomed and tracked all the skate loops this morning. It's possible they might be a bit soft in places, but they looked absolutely excellent as I groomed. Grooming plans: Next week, weather and snow conditions permitting, we will be doing our annual "Opposites" grooming. Next Monday we plan to groom all skate loops for classic only, and all classic loops for skate only. Temporary signage will be up when leaving the warming building and at the intersection where the trails split. This has been a very popular week for the past several years.

Groomed all the skate loops, cleaning up the daily snowfalls we've been getting since Sunday. All together it looks like we've picked up 3-4" of wet, heavy snow. With the exception of some snow turds that rolled off the groomer, skate loops are back in great shape.

Absolutely perfect trail conditions. Perfectly groomed, great snow. Love this trail system! We skied the Lion's pride loop, some gentle hills, a couple of hair pin turns, so at least an intermediate trail. We did not see too many people, and as we were leaving the groomer was coming around for another run at it. Wow.

Grooming

After getting our groomer back from the shop for routine maintenance this morning, I groomed and tracked all classic loops. Conditions are simply excellent. Robert groomed all skate loops this afternoon. He just reported to me that they set up in excellent condition as well. Snowshoers continue to pack down their trails on a regular basis. Skiers are welcome to ski a virtual Birke, Korte or Prince Haakon this coming week. Our loops are measured by GPS to tenth of a kilometer segments as shown on the map brochures we have in the warming building.. There are several combinations skiers could do to complete their race.

Great conditions! Skied the Oak Ridge - tracks were well-traced and conditions were awesome. A few places where the tracks were a little washed out on the last segment, returning to the chalet, as it is more heavily traveled. Thank you so much for keeping the chalet warmed and opened!

We picked up a little bit of snow overnight so tidied up the skate loops this afternoon. They should be in great shape for the weekend.

Finished grooming and tracking all classic loops today. Mostly excellent conditions. Except for final 1k coming in tracks are deep and firm. Dress for the cold and enjoy some great skiing. Skate loops are in excellent condition as well.

It took a couple days to work through the 10+ inches of snow we got on Thursday but all the skate loops are finally groomed and in tip top shape. If you can tolerate the cold and likely slow skiing you won't be disappointed. Classic loops are scheduled to be groomed and trackset on Sunday.

For two months we've been waiting for good snow. Now we have more than we needed all at one time. Robert Polic was out yesterday rolling all skate trails. I got all the classic loops rolled this morning. Robert is out again now grooming the skate loops. I plan to be out tomorrow morning grooming and tracking all classic loops. From what I've seen so far, conditions for both skate and ski should be excellent throughout the week.
