Another morning of incredible frosty conditions. Temp cooling down a bit lower last night , with lowest readings in the mid teens. Not as warm forecasted today so the snow should be dry and silky all day. Trails getting refreshed from frost falling from the trees. Skaters Waltz groomed last night. No other grooming as the trails groomed Thursday and Friday in good shape and holding out great. Friday saw no melting really with cooler temps than clouds moving back in mid afternoon. There are a few thin/rough/icy spots here and there but overall the skiing is very nice considering the low snow year. Ski conditions rated good to excellent (thanks for your reports, we appreciate it!).
We have been shoveling on thin areas this week to build up base for Section race course which will be held on Tuesday February 7th. Sunday afternoon Skaters Waltz and Mother North Star will be closed to preserve the snow for Tuesdays race and these trails will also be closed on Monday for grooming and course prep. All other trails will be open and plenty of skiing options.
All 64km of trail open with track set on 56km of trail and 15km groomed for skating. 4km of snowshoe trail open. Ice skating rink in very good condition.
Compacted base on trail 2-6″. Snow depth in the woods 6-14″. Snowfall last week around 7″. Total snowfall this season around 18″. Although this is a low snow year, we spend every dry day outside the winter season preparing the trails to be in the best condition possible so we can have good skiing on minimal snow and the newer grooming equipment does a nice job working with the snow to make for better skiing.
