January starting out like January! Temps falling during the day with a nice breeze from the northwest but quite pleasant in the woods. Snow flurries off and on accumulating to an inch or two. Grooming on 38km of trail this morning. Skaters Waltz, extension and North Loup combed for skating, Twin Lakes, Sukkerbusk, Sap Run, Mother Hen and Lucky’s Loype groomed and track set where there good snow covered. The north and east facing sections of Sukker and Twin tracked the best and nice classic skiing. With snow falling after track setting and wind blowing snow in to tracks, it works! There is 3-6″ of snow in the woods and the base is 1-3″. Skaters waltz, the extension and North Loup are groomed for skating and classic skiers skiing on North Loup as well. All the trails have been groomed except Roy’s Run and we plan to pack that out this week. There are a few rough and thin spots but folks are out skiing and enjoying the fresh snow. The cool temps are making for much better skiing today.
The hole is open for plunging and the sauna has been running in the 200’s. Few folks also ice fishing.
