Incredible day on Tuesday. Sun came out around noon, temps in the mid teens and lighter winds. Awesome day on the trails. Packing, grooming and cutting new tracks all day.
Intense winter storm dropped 6-8″ of snow with some strong winds on Sunday/Monday. We have been packing and grooming on the trails since the new snow fell. Tracks set yesterday afternoon on Sap Run, Sukkerbusk and Mother North Star. Tracks set today on Twin Lakes, Rootin Tootin, Sap Run and Jib Fly. Packing and combing on North Loup and Roys Run. Skaters waltz and the extension groomed multiple times and skate lane should be firm on Skaters albeit a bit slow with the cold new snow. We will be back out on Wednesday packing to the west and touching up some trails on the inner loops.
Trails that have been groomed and open with tracks set: Sukkerbusk, Twin Lakes, North Loup, Rootin Tootin, Mother North Star, Sap Run, Wavy Gravy, Island Lake, Roy’s Run and JibFly. Skaters Waltz, the extension and North Loup groomed for skating. Please no skating on trails other than Skaters Waltz, North Loup and the extension of Skaters. North Loup also has a track set. Please note portions of certain trails will not be groomed this year due to change in the lease and management on AMA property.
