Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails: Closed, Good skis ]
  We had a great Season Closer, groomed up 55 km today with the PB's and had great spring skiing. It was fun to have a beer and brat with our friends and pass holders and say "See you next season... Thank you for a great season!" The ski trails, ski shop and wax room are closed for the season. Please remember to use the ski racks when you park your skis at the end of your visit!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  Just coming in from grooming in the bigger Bully... It was a "sweet, bitter" feeling as I put in the Bob Seger CD Silver Bullet Band and power-tilled into the sunset for my last evening grooming of the season. The trails groomed up great tonight. We will be back out with both Pisten Bullies again in the early morning. Groomed tonight Blueberry, Bards, Hautanen, Popple Flats, PitPoint and Cherry. This will be great skiing after the temps warm up a bit. On the groom schedule for early morning: Tamarack 2 Track Ridge Runner, Coyote, Saari, River Trail, Memory, Sulos with both Bully's. Summary: 57 km groomed up with powertillers for Sunday skiing.

Grooming Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  I am just coming from grooming with the big Bully. I powertilled and reset tracks on Blueberry Bards, Hautanen, and Meadow Ridge so far tonight. The trails are well covered and powertilling up nicely. I will get a few hours sleep and partner up with Little Bully and we will double team powertill Tamarack 2 Track and then split up and powertill Ridge Runner, Coyote, Saari and Cherry and River and all side loops. Time permitting we will most likely hit the dog trails with one of the Bully's. We will not be retracking classic only trails since we have a good deep track on them and it will ski OK when the temps soften the track. Peltonen is also not going to be regroomed or reopened with the steepness it is too tricky to ski... and dangerous without grooming. Summary we will have about 50 km groomed up 65 km open and we have great snow coverage thru the weekend. We close Sunday at 5 PM.

Firsthand 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Skied ABR today, 10 am to 2:30 pm. Great conditions. Silky smooth corduroy on the skate deck. Deep classic tracks, a bit hard before noon but fine after. It was blue sky, sunny and temps in the mid-20s to mid-30s. Spring skiing at its best. They're closing for the season after Sunday, so come and get it folks!

  I am just coming in from grooming with the bigger Pisten Bully. The trails are looking great. I set track and groomed skate lanes on River, Sulos, Hautannen, Bards, Blueberry and Meadow ridge! The other main trails were Pisten bully powertilled this morning. Skiing has been super for spring skiing. We close this Sunday evening, March 26th at 5 pm.
