warming up fast. The thermometer is in the sun so we can’t trust the reading. Upper Power Line and Lower Alpine are groomed for skating. There was a snowmobiler on the trails and grooming the frozen tracks out was work. There are several narrow thin places that I expect will melt completely in the next couple days. Today is definitely the last day of grooming. Thanks to everyone for the great support again this year and we wish you a safe healthy spring and summer. Please keep up with the social distance and other recommendations to help fight the COVID 19 virus.
