Trail Report

A great weekend on the trails with good reports from skiers hitting the tracks. Hard to believe it is early December. It looks and feels like mid January. Light snows off and on over the weekend including Sunday night accumulating to 3-4″ of very light fluffy snow. Beautiful to ski in. The trails are taking great shape and pretty much in mid winter conditions! Very good to excellent early season. 60 of 64km packed/tracked/combed. 3-6″ compacted base. 35km tracked classic only, 15km groomed skate only, 10km packed (open for technique of choice).
The entire trail system has been packed/tracked or combed (including the two soccer fields and back bowl)except for the east side (4km) of Bullhead lake trail. The east side is closed until colder weather, which will freeze the thin ice areas.   Roy’s Run was pack-tracked on Friday (packed with track set right at same time) today and 75% is in good condition with soft track and other 25% is rough. We could not groom the entire loop because of water issues but still have a full complete loop using bootleg trail and forest access roads.  A nice start to the season with 20″ of snow this season, so far. We will be working on the trails this week preparing them for the high school Nordic ski camps. The trails are open for day skiing and the current fee is $10 to use the trails.
