Morning
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
Fresh groom this morning on stadium, big bend and roller coaster. Snow is firm and cold, providing a very solid base. Fine tuning of the section above the DWP is slated for some time next week; we’ll keep you updated when that arrives.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Good skis ]
We’ve received 5” of very dry, fluffy snow down at GANC and it’s just what the doctor ordered! Conditions are looking great through the system, including the loop up and around the DWP. Since this section is new it is not quite in its final form but definitely skiable and groomed in full. It finally feels like winter has arrived!

[ Trails Open: Partial, Good skis ]
The hamster wheel is shorter than it was before the storm as they're blowing more snow. A longer loop (maybe 2.5K) should be open in a few days, but before that I'd probably ski somewhere else. I did one loop then gave up and drove to the top of the hill.

Beautiful morning at Grand Avenue Nordic Center. Spent most of the time on stadium loop with trail conditions being great. Classic track set up was good. Trail extends up into Big Bend with skiers having a good time.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Good skis ]
Our current loops have been groomed and tracked, and we are working on pushing some snow out to rough in the roller coaster loop. Please be aware of machines moving around today and tomorrow that are putting some shape and final details into the trails.

Morning
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Good skis ]
Fresh groom and track set in the system and on the alpine loop. We have opened the big bend section up to the DWP crossing, and we are making good progress on the roller coaster section. The big bend section will need a few more grooming sessions to get fully processed and reach its final form; we’ve found manmade trails are like cheese or wine, they get better with some age.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Good skis ]
It’s a beautiful morning to ski! Stadium loop up to the pump house and the alpine loop are groomed and tracked. We are very close to opening the next loop. We have moved some snow guns to give us some final product to put in some corners and it shouldn’t take to long to wrap that up.

Afternoon
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Good skis ]
If you managed to come out today you'll have noticed we were able to add just a little bit more to the stadium loop as we keep building deeper into the system! As of today the loop extends up to the pumphouse above the stadium. We have made very good progress further into the system and the piles have been pushed out into a solid base. There is a little more snow to be made to complete the loop below the DWP crossing but we are very close to having that open to you. We'll keep pushing into the system as long as the temperatures allow.

17F and overcast. Excellent conditions throughout the groomed area. The classic tracks and skate lane go from the stadium up the base of one run and down again. The tracks are in excellent shape all around. Fantastic conditions.
