Trial Grooming XC Skiing

Cross Country Ski Report – Saturday, Feb 9th

The grooming team worked tirelessly all day yesterday, and did an outstanding job producing some great ski conditions for the weekend! Tracks were set on all trails except Manitou yesterday, and Groomer Mike will be out this morning to Ginzu snow comb the whole system, and re-set tracks where needed. We did receive some fresh snow yesterday and last night, which combined with the more crystalized snow underneath, will yield great mid-season conditions for skating and classic today. There is still lots of snow in the woods and on the trail, and more to come!

Weather forecast:
Today: Generally cloudy. High 18F. Winds W at 5 to 10 mph.
Tonight: Partly cloudy skies this evening will become overcast overnight. Low 1F. Winds light and variable.
Tomorrow: Cloudy with snow developing during the afternoon. High 21F. Winds light and variable. Chance of snow 70%. Snowfall around one inch.
