Cross Country Ski Report – Thursday, December 27th, 2012

We received an inch of light snow last night and as of 7AM there is still a very light snowfall.

This is just what the groomer doctor ordered for the trails! The fresh snow has covered the oak leaves that have found their way into the machine set tracks so the classic skiing will be even better!

Plus snowcombing the fresh snow will make the skating lanes brand new.

The Rolling Hills, Manitou, Blizzard, Wild Turkey and Trapper’s Cabin Trails have nice machine tracks set and Ginzu Groomed snowcombed skating lanes.

We will try to set tracks on the Tall Pines and Adventure trails today.

Groomer Stu will be Ginzu grooming this morning starting very early.
