  All trails are open; most are getting groomed for skating daily. Very fast, yet still plenty of control. Wore my World Cup skis this morning with no worries. There is very little debris on the snow. I skated from 8am until 9:30am and it was still good when I left. It would be great to see some new faces at Valleys Spur this weekend, we die-hards don't even bother saying 'Hi' anymore...we just go past with big smiles on our faces. I guarantee you will not be disappointed no matter how far you have to drive to get here. I do recommend getting on the snow early. Classic won't be bad after temps soften snow because there are still tracks out there as of this morning.

  All the trails are open and most of them are groomed for classic and skate. With 14" of fresh snow Sunday and Monday, Dan was out grooming Tuesday and today. Tracks are deep and solid. Awesome day with great kick and glide. Classic skied hard for 1 hour and a half, switched to skating and did the same. Deck was still a bit soft but well groomed. By the time I left at 12:30 it had softened enough to know that tomorrow will be blazing fast without being icy. Dan is still grooming and I can not wait for tonight's cold temps. This is truly Nordic heaven with bright blue sky, temps rising into upper 30s then falling below freezing at night making every morning an adventure in speed skiing. Hoping for a good crowd this weekend...Who knows, maybe a Snow Flea Hoppet tour.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Valley Spur has gotten a ton of snow over the past 3 days that has been groomed in daily with the lions share of it being last nights 8 inches of fluff. Groomed A,B,C,D,X,W and the first loop on G this morning. Will work on getting all other loops open Wednesday. Things are looking very good weather wise through the weekend so if your into some great late Spring skiing come here. We have snow!

  Great conditions still at Valley Spur. We still have a very deep base in the 20 inch range and no bare spots even in the hi exposure low snow sections. As long as we have cold enough temps and fresh snow to work with we will continue to groom. Things are looking good through the weekend for sure.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Great conditions once again at Valley Spur. We have gotten a lot of snow over the last week and temps have stayed below freezing overnight and not much above freezing if at all during the day so conditions are holding well. Our base remains in the 20 inch range. Lots of die hard skiers coming in from all around to enjoy these mid winter conditions.
