25F, no new. Cleaned up skate lane on upper Alpine & Spur. Spur & Hairpin rocky!

25°F, lots of wind over night so the new snow depth varies widely. Groomed out 5k from the upper parking lot and went out the Spur, but the snow is still thin in places out there. We still need more snow before we can begin grooming from the main parking lot, so keep doing that snow dance.

16°F Groomed the highest elevation trail out 4k from the upper (Truman Saddle) parking lot. Groomed a short way out the Spur Trail but kicked up a few rocks. The main Alpine trail is great down to the turn around and back.

33°F. Alpine is all groomed. It’s been a pretty good season. Thanks to all our supporters. We couldn’t do it without your contributions. See you at the Kick and Glide Party next November.
