Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
  I spent a few hours grooming Hidden Valley trails today. The above freezing temperatures and rain this past week wreaked havoc on our trails. We were fortunate that the trails went unused during the thaw/rain and what little base survived has now firmed up. Although the trails are somewhat usable, many bare spots and scratchy areas are present. Use of the trails will only lead to their further deterioration. I have no plans to groom until we receive at least 2" of new snow.

[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  Conditions: Pretty good coverage for both skate and classic.
Snow was getting squeezed by melting from the ground and the warm air. A little soft and grabby on the skate deck. Pretty good fun just the same.

  Conditions: Great conditions! Groomer was out grooming on Thanksgiving Day afternoon as I skied. Classic tracks set and a great skating deck. Skied Birch Highlands, Sommers and Bambas Loops.
The snowfall over the past 48 hours and the new grooming took care of the tree debris left on the trails after last weeks heavy snow. There is a deep solid base everywhere.

  Conditions: Real nice! Most trails groomed for skating and classic.
I skated the main outer loops this afternoon. A bit soft but amazingly good, considering that it was a mild, snowless fall just a couple of days ago! Some tree debris here and there, but no rocks!

  The major trails have been groomed for both skate and classic. Most minor trails will come online Sunday including Deer Trail and the new and improved Hanna.
