Grooming Report 12/26/2011

Grooming report:

Forestville:
12.26.11: All trails groomed for skating with Ginzu yesterday. Tracks were set
from 19k to Co Rd 510.  Tracks were also
set on Mukwa.  All other areas there are
no classic tracks due to thin snow cover. 
Yesterday and this morning the skiing was very good to excellent on most
of the trail.  Problem areas remain under
the hemlocks; in the recently logged 100 yards just below the lower Mead gate
near the 20k mark; and in the swamp near the small bridge near 17k.   Today’s
high temps will be near 40f.  Root for
more snow. 

Blueberry Ridge
12.26.11: We groomed Superior, Wolverine and Lighted Loops on Friday
. There is still too little snow to set a
classic track.  We also skate groomed
Crossroads and Husky
.

Conditions range
from “fair” to “good”. Coverage is about 90%.

I should add, to
the east loops(Spartan, Superior, Wildcat)the snow is very thin along some
stretches.

I am sure that
classic skiiers will still be able to “ski-in” a classic track; and
the skaters will be in fine shape.


Saux Head 12.26.11: Sauxhead received about 5-6 inches of new snow Friday and
received the first roller groom of the season.  Skiing is good to very
good.  The inner loops and especially
under the hemlocks is very thin but all trails are skiable.  The very smooth ground surface makes for good
skiing with very little snow.


Fit Strip 12.25.11: Has been rolled, still not ready for rock skies yet but
great for snowshoes or snow bikes.
