Tuesday and Wednesday we will be hosting the Section 8 Nordic ski championships. The trails not used in the races will be open for skiing but be aware parking may be limited. Best options is taking Sukkerbusk to the west to access the western or northern trails for 38km of classic skiing options. Although there will be no skate race tomorrow, skate trail is closed until 3pm as the Section course crosses the skate trail in a few places.
Grooming update: Today we groomed the Section Courses (Sap Run, Mother North Star, JibFly, and last part of Sukkerbusk) in the afternoon. These trails will be closed for skiing at 3pm.
Nature Notes: Wildlife has been active the last few weeks. We have been seeing porcupines along the snowshoe trail and Roy’s Run. We have also seen hawks, owls near JibFly and North Star, fox, deer of course, pileated woodpeckers and tons of tracks.
