Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
Grooming went well on Tuesday evening. It was just about the maximum amount before becoming a chore, I'm guessing 8". In keeping with the 2/22/22 theme, it was two passes each with the drag, roller and Tidd Tech. Grooming plans: The skate deck will be ready to ski on Wednesday morning and tracks will be cut in on Wednesday evening. The fields are not going to be groomed this week and are available to work on your Birkie hill climbing technique of lifting your skis 15" on each step.

I didn't get to ski long, because I was there with my kids for a youth program. But I managed to sneak in a few loops myself, and it was one of those times when I really wished I could keep skiing. Very fast and fun conditions with a dusting of snow over a solid base. The tracks looked good too, getting worn out in places, but worked great for the kids tonight.

The multiple light snows added up over the weekend to allow for grooming on Sunday and Monday. This has given us great conditions in the woods. Skating on Wednesday night was fantastic. The fields are shaping up nicely, but still use some caution on your first trip around.

Nice ski on the lighted loop, very windy. Fast, packed snow. Classic tracks were there. Most lights are working.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
We missed out on the snow, so tonight's grooming was just to clean up the skate deck. Skiing has been great this week, and this was another opportunity to level things up. The skate deck was done on the entire system, including the fields which are really starting to shape up. The tracks look good. They probably won't be reset until we get some new snow.

Trails were groomed recently and had been skied-in for a great deck. Was a great morning to ski before temps climbed. Classic tracks were fair to good, spots of leaves and shallow track.

[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Skied around at sunset, the trails in the field definitely should use B skis. Corn and plant stubble comes through in both of them. The lit trails are good coverage, skied in and fast!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
We got about 1.5" today on top of a nice flat base. The trails in the woods were groomed with new track set in the evening. Things should be great this weekend.

[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
We had a little difficulty with the tracksetter the other day (it wouldn't raise) so there were some corners with tight tracks. I figured that out and touched up the skate deck Saturday morning. The fields have been groomed, but they need more snow. Stay in the woods. We have things pretty level and firm, it is skiing better every day. There are a few spots where the tracksetter burned through the deck and is brown, so I would go with B skis for classic but in the woods on skate skis you shouldn't have to worry.

Grooming plans: We are waiting for the temps to drop and will start grooming about 1pm on Monday. The goal is to have everything ready to go Tuesday morning.
