Groomers at Wolverine were able to put together a pretty good 6k loop this morning. The only area that was touch and go was right after Wolverine trail joins the Novice. About half of the groomed trail had shallow to really good tracks set with any issues easily avoidable.

Grooming

We didn't get as much snow as hoped. But the Wolverine and Novice loop are skiable on B skis. Skate lane is OK, some grass showing in spots, and classic tracks were reset where possible. Come out and enjoy the day.

Couple inches of snow improved conditions at Wolverine. Skate deck had been groomed on the Novice and Wolverine loops. Pretty darn fun skiing despite thin cover and rocks that were largely avoidable.

Wolverine continues to have great skiing, especially for skating. The skate deck gets regular grooming with spots filled in with extra snow to avoid rocks/dirt. Skated the Wolverine loop in the morning and it was in great shape. Classic skied in the afternoon with warmer temps and tracks were still holding up. The cool nights and regular maintenance have helped preserve the base. Ski while you can!

Groomed and skied Wolverine this morning. Wolverine, Novice and Ottawa trails open. Super fast but edgeable skate deck. Tracks present but not reset. Coverage surprisingly good given weather. Shoveled some thin patches on our grooming lap.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
Groomers went out this morning. They did some shoveling on Wolverine trail. The Wolverine trail is open from Cliffs trail, behind the hospital and back to the chalet. Novice trail is open but needs some shoveling. Groomers closed Powderhorn trail, the Wolverine cut across, Stairway to heaven and Pit run trails.

Fast and fun skating at Wolverine. Skied immediately following the morning groom of the skate lanes. There was enough loose snow to get a good edge with a firm skate deck. The downhills were fast but there was plenty of loose snow to control your speed with edging/snowplowing. The base is in good shape thanks to regular maintenance and grooming. Most trails are fairly smooth with no bare spots.

Good base layer of snow. A bit icy in spots. Trails are slick, but fun! All in all, great skiing with these warm temps we've been having.
