Evening
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Our groomers went out and reset the tracks and skate deck on every loop at night. As has been our pattern the last couple of days, some lake effect snow blew in after they were done leaving about 1/4 of light fluffy snow on top of everything. It makes for some beautiful scenery and our skiers are reporting that, despite the snow, the trails are running hard and fast. Next scheduled grooming is Saturday morning.

Morning
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
As expected we got some great snow last night. Depending on where we measure, there was 10-12" of new snow to work with. So our groomers were out pretty much all night starting with rolling, and then the final grooming starting at 4 a.m. It makes for a long night, but the trails are in excellent condition.

Morning
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
All of the skate lanes and classic tracks were refreshed early Wednesday morning. Temperatures were ideal for grooming, and the trails set up nicely before the first skiers got there. We also went out and added some additional signage for snowshoers to correct an issues where some of them were getting lost and wandering out on to the ski trails. Our next scheduled grooming is early Thursday morning. Depending on snowfall, we may adjust our timing to try and take better advantage of conditions.

Our groomers. Brad and Nick, got a head of the cold temperatures last night and reset all of the tracks and skate lanes. I went out for a quick skate ski on our warm-up loop and can report the trails set up great and are are hard and fast this morning. The classic lanes look great as well.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Freestyle 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Conditions were excellent today. Trails were freshly groomed, the skate deck was firm, and the tracks were deep and firm. The sun was shining and the temperature was around 20 F. It just doesn’t get any better than this. I skied the red loop including the out and back as well as the blue loop for a total of 20 kilometers. It was a great day of skate skiing.

Morning
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
We groomed everything early this morning, after we though the snow was done. But another round of flurries came in and dusted everything up. So, there will be a light layer of the fluff covering everything until we can get back out and groom again tonight.

[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Conditions could not be much better than they are. Tracks are deep, pole plants solid, untracked downhills have just enough give to allow easy step turns without fear of skidding out. Nice to see WinMan full of snowshoers, fat bikers and Nordic skiers today.

Morning
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Our groomers went out early this morning to groom and reset all the tracks after a busy weekend. Brad Reports that the cooler temperatures helped to solidify the trails, especially the classic tracks, and they only needed resetting in a few places. Additionally the skate deck smoothed out nicely and is in excellent condition.

Pristine skiing. We thought the snow would be slushy but trails were groomed well with great coverage and temperatures.
