Groomed 4 km of upper Alpine from the upper parking lot. Set classic track too. Worked on the Spur but the snow is thin, maybe okay for rock skis. Keep dancing!

2" new snow since last Saturday, 7" on the total stake, 22°F. I’m hoping to find a little more snow on upper Alpine where I’ll be grooming about 4 km of trail. Park at the upper lot. Don’t stop practicing that snow dance!

We have groomed upper Alpine. It is very rough because of the frozen truck ruts that had to be removed. No classic track. Park at the upper lot. There is only 2″-3″ of snow at the main parking lot. We will try to groom from the main lot as soon as we get more snow. Keep dancing!
