Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails: Closed, Rock skis ]
  With the rain and now the freeze, the snow is very crusty. Unfortunately, the part of the groomer that can cut this up is not currenly working, so we are unable to groom. There is a slight chance of repair, but I cannot reach the person that would be making the repair to get a current status. The forecast had originally predicted snow for last night, but since we didn't receive any, we can only groom if we can cut up the surface. Next week and into the foreseeable future, daily highs in the's will not allow for much more trail use anyway. We may be done for the season. If that changes, we will post here again.

  Fantastic morning ski! Trail was fast! Skied Central Corridor, Cut-thru, North Loop and East Leg. Thanks grooming the trails! It is much appreciated.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Groomed all the North trails today. So whole trail is done. Trails are in excellent condition except on the Lake side where there was a lot of drifting. I got stuck twice but made it thru with the help of the winch. Snow depth is 28" track base is 8" so we should have good skiing for a couple weeks. Moved a wolf killed deer off the SE portion of the lake loop where the hill is.

  Beautiful sunny day to be on the trails! Skied the Central Corridor - this corridor plus the entry point had been walked on; so very little of the track was there. The Cut-thru and the East leg were much much better without people tracks, in spots the track was pretty shallow. There were snowshoe tracks on the sides of the Cut-thru and the East Leg, fortunately not on the ski track! I did not ski the Lake loop or the North loop.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Today all of the south trails have been groomed. We earlier thought that due to significant drifting in spots that we'd give up the south for the season. But I skied them earlier this week to see how bad the drifting was and found others had been out. Given there is demand, we decided to open it up. In the end - it wasn't so bad. A few passes with a couple of snowmobiles to pack it down and it was ready for grooming.
