Grooming Report

Tom Y and Peter B groomed everything and set track all the way around this morning. It's still snowing hard, so there will be some fluff on top. Perfect for classic skiers. Skaters will be working hard. Close to 5 inches of new snow, and counting...!

Grooming Report for Sunday, Dec 27th

Thanks to John, Tom,(also for stocking fuel) Barry,Peter,Hank and Alan for their efforts of the week since the last up-date.
Lance Webster (with an upset coyote on most of Hamlin) and John groomed on Saturday. They concentrated on setting classic throughout.
All the hard work in the last few weeks is working great to make for a flat, well packed surface.

Come enjoy the trails and Happy Holidays!

Grooming Report for Friday, Dec 18

Notes from Groomer Andy:

"Just a few notes on the current status of "groomage" up at Chickenland. Tom and Andy were able to roll-out Rush, Hamlin, and Chicken Ck. Road on Thursday. A classic track will be set when Hank is able to get the new battery installed in "Old Yeller". Dolph Kuss Loop and Turkey remain un-groomed. Lower/Upper Bauer are fairly "buffed". It was quite warm up there, and some subsequent, hot spots, but the skiing is quite nice."

Happy Trails
