32° now and sunny, no new snow. Fresh skate lanes everywhere up here, classic track everywhere but is a little thin in spots. We need some new snow to fix them, maybe this week. Enjoy!

35°F, no new snow. We were delayed by a downed tree this morning. Power Line is groomed. We attempted to set track but it didn’t turn out well in the frozen snow conditions. The skate lane is groomed on Alpine and the Spur. The existing classic track was left in place.

it’s 31°F with 2 or 3 inches of snow since we stopped grooming Wednesday morning. I believe that the snow is firm enough to groom so I will be headed to the alpine loop and spur trail today. Stay tuned for more info
