It took a couple of days for 13" of heavy wet snow to set up, but it groomed up nicely with the Tidd today. Temps look good for skiing this week.

Trail was rejuvenated after a week of elementary ski classes that left the surface hard packed and classic tracks nearly wiped out. Multiple rounds with the cutters were needed to refresh the deck and generate enough snow to set track. Great to see all the kids out, worth the effort. Trail looks super for the weekend.

Close to 8" snow over the last three days. Trail was snowmobile packed and groomed with the Tidd. Track was set and should firm up with cold temps.

Yesterday's snow measured 4" but windy conditions made for irregular density. Skate deck is a little soft and tracks are a bit shallow.

Nice morning on Manka with above zero temps and the sun trying to peak through. Tracks are set and skate deck groomed with multiple passes to compact a light snow.

We received 3+ inches of snow yesterday followed by a light mist last night. The crust mixed nicely with the new snow to produce a very nice base. Tracks and skate deck look really good and will set up nicely with overnight lows.

Even though we only received about an inch of snow yesterday, near blizzard conditions caused considerable drifting on the west exposure of the trail. Multiple passes were required shape up the packed snow. The wind blown snow on the remainder of the trail made for a less than perfect corduroy and a slightly shallow track set. Conditions should be very skiable if you brave the cold the next few days.

We received a couple of inches of wind driven snow yesterday. The west exposure from the college property was completely drifted. Groomed and tracked and ready to go. Cold temps tonight should set up the deck.
