Trail Report

After one of the coldest mornings this winter (-28 at 7am) we warmed up nicely to around 0. Hard to believe 0 would be “warm” but after what is turning out to be a record cold month of December,…… sunshine and light winds made for a gorgeous day on the trails. I was very impressed by the ski teams at Maplelag this past weekend including two teams that left today that were skiing in the morning in the sub zero temps. Great job!!

Grooming on hold because of the colder temps until after lunch. Fresh tracks set on Loon Return and Wavy Gravy. Skaters Waltz extension, Bullhead, Double Green, Single Green, Kristin’s Kutoff, and Suicide Hill rollcompacted late afternoon. Planning on setting tracks on Bullhead trail and will set new tracks on other trails, depending on possible new snow. Either way there is some great skiing on the trails right now with all the fresh snow the past two weeks. The compacted base on the trail ranges from 4-7″ and the snow depth in the woods ranges from 10-20″. Tracks are set on about 33km of trail and 13km groomed skate only on North Loup and Skaters Waltz.
