After receiving a paltry 1 inch on Monday morning we cleaned up the skate deck, but didn’t touch the classic tracks. We want the new snow to be skied over, so as to cover some ice that was making up the tracks in spots.
Same thing goes for Cassian. A portion of the tracks especially on the North loop were icy as of Sunday. Once the new snow is skied into the tracks they should improve.
Trails were groomed Thursday night and are in good shape.
There is logging at the North end of Terry’s Loop so please be careful and considerate of those working.
We received 3 inches of snow yesterday. This allowed us to reset the tracks on both trails. The cold temperatures will allow for some solid tracks, and prime skiing conditions.
Approximately 2-3 inches of new snow was groomed this morning. All classic tracks were reset. There are a few areas with dirt in the tracks so pay attention. Deck looks really nice. No visible dirt at this time. Deck remains thin in some areas.
Good news for classic skiers. There is now a track at Washburn. The track is not consistent throughout. Those sections of trail designated as track skiing only will have a nice track. For those of you familiar with Washburn, that would mean the classic double track from Kiosk C to G, and the landfill loop, The remaining segments of the “outer” loop will have some marginal track. There remain a few stretches where no track was set….too little snow, and some dirt. The skate deck was also renovated, and is in good condition.
Cassian and Nose Lake were not worked. One simple reason, not enough snow. We are leaving those tracks, as they are holding up under the conditions.
