Grooming Report 12/29/2012

Forestville: Light snow overnight and today will make for an ideal cover to a hard groomed surface. It has been several days since any snow has fallen and the snow was beginning to show its age and grooming is leaving less of an ideal corduroy surface and some slight “balling”. This new ½” will ski in well today and grooming tonight will mix the surfaces for a good corduroy tomorrow. All trails were groomed last night or early this morning and skiing will be excellent again.

Blueberry Ridge: The DNR has elected to groom Blueberry Ridge this year. DNR equipment is not ready yet but. In the mean time Friends of Blueberry Ridge have groomed some of the trails. As of this report, Wildcat is not yet open. We will post detailed reports as they become available.

Valley Spur: The following was posted on Valley Spur grooming report Friday morning:
. We worked on getting E, F and G packed. Swanny will put final groom on tomorrow a.m. and then set track and open it tomorrow.

We will need more snow before we can open H.

New track was set and all the skate lanes rolled this a.m. Skate lanes are starting to firm up. Temps will be in the teens tonight which should help. Good coverage on the trail, but some thin spots which are easily stepped around.

A good turnout today as people are moving north looking for snow.
