Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  All of Washburn was groomed Thursday. With another 7-9 inches of fluffy snow, there was lot of drifting along the lake. That section was groomed twice, and on the second time through it was already drifting over again, so we will try to groom that section again before our Saturday night moonlight ski event sponsored by the Lake Country Nordic Ski Club.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  Groomed two NE loops of the trail after we received about 10-12" of new snow over the week. Condition is excellent. Did not groom the NW Loop because of excessive drifting on the lake side. Got the snowmobile and groomer stuck but was able to get them out easily with the winch. There is 2 feet of snow so you don't want to get off the track. We hope to get the NW loop and the south 3 loops by Saturday for the Moonlight Ski.

Grooming

  Today I groomed the south trails at Washburn - they had not been groomed for the last few snowfalls. Had to run the sled without the groomer over a couple of times to pack it down, then followed up with the groomer. The snow and base are awesome! Wish I could get out and ski more than I've been able to.

  After 8-12" of new, dry fluffy snow I got out to groom late this afternoon. The grooming sled was stressed under the load, but I was able to get the full north loops groomed. The south will have to wait until we have more time, but we'll get to it.
