Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Rock skis ]
  Received around 3 inches of fresh snow yesterday. Groomed A,B,C,D,G,X and Y with new tracks that set very well. A few thin spots showing some dirt through but 90% of the trails groomed are very good. Likely the last hoorah of the year so hope you can get there and enjoy it!

  A good crowd showed again today. Dan is using Jeep with smaller ginzu, so a return of some white snow. Very good skating in the morning, classic tracks are mostly washed out, but those with no-wax or klister enjoyed things in the skate lane. Tomorrow may be the best day for a while as warmer temps and precip coming in next week. Groomed A, B, C, D, Y, Z to G return.

  Dan keeps grooming and it is fast, smooth and safe with just enough snow raked up by the tiller. There is about 12 to 15k groomed and it is worth the 80 mile round trip for me, (I'd drive a heck of lot further for blazing fast conditions like this). With night time temps dipping below freezing the next 3 nights, skiing should be good right up to the end of the weekend. I keep telling my wife, "I promise this is my last ski of the season, but Dan keeps grooming. What's a skier to do? No ground showing through.

  Skating was fantastic this morning after Dave went over lanes with Ginzu. Skating slows, classic tracks begin to soften by mid-morning. Ski conditions should easily hold through the weekend as we still have a deep firm base. Lodge will be open, woodstove going, so bring your lunch and come on out. Skiing is a long way from over here. We have a loyal following who still show up every morning.

  Got out around 9am this morning and Dave had already groomed most of the skate lanes which I was thankful for. Overnight temps dropped below freezing and the deck was hard, rutted and unforgivingly fast in ungroomed sections. But where combed, it was fast but stable. Incredible, skied on good skis. There is plenty of snow not even close to ground showing, and overnite temps leading to the weekend will provide great skiing early, 8am until 10 to 10:30am and Dave said he will KEEP ON GROOMING! Tracks were good enough to provide roller coaster thrills on hills.
