Grooming report 5 Feb


Can you find it? 

A couple of inches of new snow was groomed by the snowmobile groomer Thursday night, and Friday morning we set tracks. Beautiful weather and excellent snow conditions for the trails event on Saturday. A group of snowshoers were seen packing down the snowshoe trails, so it should be a great weekend for anyone who wants to get out on the snow!

Grooming report Groundhog Day

Did you read about the fellow who claims to have seen Yeti tracks in Bhutan? These are not Yeti. Maybe next week. This week we had a few more inches of snow, which showed the track of a coyote sharing the ski trail. All is groomed and track-set, so come up for some mid-week skiing! If Punxatawny Phil is right, there might not be much winter left.

Rich reaps the rewards of his work, skiing in his own newly laid track. More snow is on the way, and the skiing and snowshoeing just keep getting better.
