A blustery day on the trails with the wind wiping around pretty good along with an inch or so of new snow. We groomed in the morning setting fresh tracks on about 25km and than groomed again in the evening grooming all the skate trails and new tracks on about 28km. Wind has settled down and with sunny and clear forecasted for rest of weekend, should be a great weekend of skiing on tap. Excellent skiing conditions. Soft in a few spots but repeat grooming firming up the trails. Compacted base 7-10″. 100% open on 64km. 57 km tracked for classic, 15km groomed for skating. Skaters Waltz/ extension Single and Double green, Suicide Hill and North Loup groomed for skating. There is also a track set on North Loup for classic.
Total snowfall this season has been 50″. The trails are open for day skiing and the current fee is $15 to use the trails for the day.
Pretty much a perfect day for the DL Invitational Nordic ski meet. Definitely crisp in the morning at -8 but with bright sunshine, light winds and high temp of +8, a great day on the trails. Always nice to see over a hundred kids off from school enjoy the trails and being in the woods.Results and full photoset on skinnyski.com
