34°F, a few snow flakes are in the air. The skate lane is groomed all the way around the Power Line loop. New classic track is set out to the snow fence. This is likely our last day of grooming. Thanks to all of you for your support. It’s been another great season. Watch for news about our fundraiser next fall and have a great summer.

32°F, soft wet snow. I expect it rained over night. We didn’t get a surface freeze. I’m afraid we’ll just make a mess if we try to groom this morning. We’ll watch the weather and hope we can groom a day next week.

It looks like we may get a break in the stormy weather tomorrow morning. I’ll check it out and post what I find when I get up there early tomorrow, Saturday, morning.

32° and overcast. Alpine loop, Spur trail, and upper Powerline all have fresh groomed skate lanes. Due to lack of new snow we have left the old classic track which is good in places, not so much in others. Today is the last regular daily grooming and will be as needed now.
