Great conditions for this time of year. Rolled again today and set track on this beautiful day looks like 5" base with very little debris, if any. Plan to get the tidd tech out Thursday after this sets with the past two storms.

Thank you! Thank you! To all the helpers that cleared the trail. Kudos for an excellent grooming job. We strided from west trailhead with a full deep classic track. The trees were amazing. To quote a fellow skier "oh happy days skiing in November". It looked like most of snowshoeing trails were groomed as well. Get out and ski!

Here's to a shout out to those that gave a big hand helping today clearing downed trees and debris from the trail. Fred and Bruce started on the Eagle River side and met up with at the Muskrat Creek bridge with Pat, Jeff, Jenn and Kewee who started from the Three Lakes side. With the numerous downed trees removed, now the skate lane is corduroy and the tracks are set, thanks to Pat and Jeff running the grooming equipment. Blaze orange suggested if you venture out on Sunday. If you come across these fine folks, let them know how much their efforts are appreciated. A hard day of bending over and very wet gloves getting the debris off the trail.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails: Closed, Rock skis ]
Our initial trail opening date was early next week but with storm damage from the heavy snow and high winds we're set back a bit. We are coordinating an effort with volunteers to help with the removal of debris on Friday Nov 29th 9am so we can get most of it removed before we get more snow on top. If shopping isn't your thing, strap on the snow shoes and help us clear our trail! We hope to have equipment support on both ends of the trail but still the in planning. Remember it is gun deer season so blaze orange is recommended. The goal is to get all the debris off the trail for the groomer!

Not groomed but enough fresh snow for easy classic striding. My kick wax occasionally picked up snow right down to the underlying limestone trail surface. Most likely skating would do the same because there is not yet a solid snow base. Still, it felt good to be out this early in the season doing the kick and glide.
