Fresh powder ! 3-5″ fluffy new snow Thursday night/Friday morning. 4 trails roll compacted early morning for total of 11km. 1/2″ to 2″ compacted soft base with thin and rough spots. 13 degrees, light snow falling most of the day on Friday.
Last night groomed our early season loop after 2-3″ of snow had fallen. Was thin and rough but wanted to get a groomable base established for any more snow during the night. Headed out early this morning to find 1-5″ of new snow on the trails. The start area was very thin as result of big wind. Overall the trails groomed pretty good for a first snowfall. The trails groomed last night came out a bit better as expected including Suicide hill. Skied about 5km after grooming and found fair to very good early season first snowfall skiing. Suicide, as expected, was in the best shape after multiple packings the last 12 hours. The back sides of Skaters Waltz and Sukkerbusk were winterwonderland and very nice skiing. A check of non groomed found skiable for classic. We will have the trails groomed open for skiing at no charge. Be advised there are thin areas and a snowplow will most likely push to the ground. Best to use “rock” skis. This is a great start and awesome to be grooming and skiing again! Most of skaters waltz and Suicide hill groomed again late Friday.
