Grooming Report, November 26, 2013

Greetings NTN Members, Forestville:  All trails inside 14k were rolled Saturday  except Bagwagi and the hills on Chiwagi.  5” of dense cold snow packed down to a 3” base.  We pulled the 108 Ginzu behind the Gator on Sunday on the Noque to 14k + Mukwa.  We received several positive comments regarding enjoyable skiing Sunday.   We have kept off the trails until more snow to preserve the cover.  That snow looks like it is on the way.  We will be out grooming as soon as snow permits. Saux Head: Is scheduled to be rolled on Wednesday after the snow. Valley
