Fresh snow!! After a brief moment of freezing drizzle early this morning, light snow falling most of the day. As of 3pm, around 3″ of accumulation. We groomed most of the morning in to the afternoon, covering around 35km of trail. We set new track on Sukkerbusk, Sap Run, Twin Lakes and JibFly. All the skate trails were combed/renovated and Suicide Hill groomed as well. Grooming we mixed the old snow with the new snow to help set up the snow. The new snow improving the skiing. We will continue grooming daily up to the weekend, setting track on some of the outer trails that haven’t had a track set this year (Roy’s Run, Wavy Gravy and Island Lake trails) and resetting on the inner trails. The new snow and cooler temps forecasted should make for nice skiing, especially classic. Skate skiing will be a bit slower now.
Conditions are fresh snow on top of hard, compacted base of 2-4″ Snow depth in the woods is 4-7″. Total snowfall since January 1st is 11″. Around 30km tracked for classic, 15km groomed skate and all other have a packed base or skier made track. We will be adding to the total km of track set throughout the week. Sections of trail in the AMA area will not be groomed this year. Areas of thin cover and rough. Check the trail report board in the main lodge for the latest trail information.
