Grooming Secondhand 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  About 6 inches of new fluffy white, was enough to get trail conditions set up to mid-season form, with all of the trails being leveled plus now having a workable base. Tracks were set on all segments slightly breaking up the surface crust and working in the new snow. One skier was already out, she said she was enjoying the new pillow soft cuts with the solid base underneath. With dropping temps overnight, tomorrow should be pretty prime classicing on the settled set up snow. Alpine Loop, still has one thin spot, that is a slow down situation for 3 feet where the wind, combined with the pine tree creates a low snow situation. There are some scattered rocks to the sides of the trail, advise to ski up on apron, instead of venturing off to avoid where the track cut is almost down to the ground for the 3 feet. Easily seen and avoid.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  We built up the areas with snow that still needed deeper depth to put the rakers down to brake up the glazed snow / tracks. Made several loops out to the deer stand and down Harry's Gultch with rakers down, plus on a few other sections needing attention. The results looked pretty good, with the mixed in snow setting up well. Trails are not in consistant condition ; some are fair others are good and most are very good. With the exception of Alpine Loop, which now has a glazed speed run all the way to the sharp turn at the bottom. Pit Run is very skiable with some fast long downs.

  Groomer has electrical issues. Will notify when operable and trails get groomed. Until then expect glazed trails. Light falling snow today will help conditions. Track setter had been lifted on hills and on turns at bottom of hills making turns easier as well as climbs.

  Skied all trails. They were a bit soft, but should be fast tomorrow when its colder. A great day to be in the woods.

  Skied Black's at night after grooming the fat bike loop. Tracks were nice and firm. Corners all widened out nice. Tight corners/intersection had track setter lifter to allow easy transition onto adjoining trails. The apron was a little soft but should set up over the next couple days I imagine. Black's is one of a kind and should be visited often! Just get outside!
