We skied Ski Games in the late afternoon. Fantastic views of the moon and sunset. Skate deck was hard and icy. The classic tracks were well set but infested with leaves.

Amazingly good conditions on the portion of the trails that are lit. One thin spot out in the field where it has been most of the season so far. Otherwise absolutely fantastic snow. A few annoying leaves of course.

Refreshed Silver Trail - skate deck and set classic tracks. Did our best to rake up leaves on trail. Trimmed branches away from the classic track for more clearance. There is a high school meet this afternoon from 3-6p at Winthrop Trail. It’s fast out there. Have fun!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
All of the trails, except for the A Climb on the World Cup trail, received a fresh grooming this morning. The skate deck throughout the system is in very good condition. Very few bares spots and none that are a problem for skiers. Classic tracks have not been reset on the main trails, but will be for tomorrow's ski meet. Ski Games trails were regroomed and tracks were reset, and it is in very good to excellent condition. Good skis would have been recommended except for the leaf debris in some areas that continues to be a problem. We need more snow, but for now, the trails are holding up well.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
All trails at Battle Creek were combed out this morning including the Ski Games trail and the JOC practice field. No tracks were reset. Most tracks are shallow and well used, we need more snow to reset. The skate lane is good to excellent all over. I should add we do have our leaves. At this time there is only one spot that has grass/dirt showing through but easy to step around.

Grooming

Skating deck refurbished on the Gold, Silver, Bronze and Ski Games trails. Thin in spots and just a few bare areas. Best in the woods, except for the leaves. Classic track in fair condition: some bare and icy sections and lots of leaves.

Groomed Silver, Gold, and Ski Games this morning. Re-set classic tracks on a portion of the trail. Snow is soft and all trails are in decent shape. Leaves and some grassy spots still persist.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
The Ball Field and the Ski Games trails were groomed this morning. The trail was soft after the grooming but should setup as the day goes on. Classic tracks that were set on Ski Games were down to an ice base in a few places, over all tracks are good to very good. All loops have plenty of snow and should firm up with more use and grooming. Happy New Year!

Morning
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
All trails except Ski Games and ball field have been rolled, skate deck groomed and repaired to our best ability after some recent 4x4 damage, classic tracks set. We will groom Ski Games and the ball field in the next couple/few days. Good skis will work. Classic skiers might want to use B skis until we groom again, and if you’re super particular about your bases go with B skis. Enjoy some fresh snow and entering a new decade!
