Noque – FV – We did roll to the Tourist Park Saturday but snow cover remains extremely thin and good skis are not recommended. Regular grooming will take place when snow permits.

Saux Head: Received some lake effect early Saturday morning. We groomed the Saux Head Trail system early Saturday afternoon. Overall, the trail is in good skiing condition. Note: The base condition at the East Trailhead parking area of the Peep-O-Day is on the thin side compared to the rest of the trail.

Al Quaal: Grooming will begin when conditions permit

Fit Strip: Groomed and tracked 12/22. Rock skis recommended.

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 Saturday evening:
Some light snow flurries today and then it picked up strong for about an hour in the afternoon. The lake effect snow is still drifting down.

The skate deck is solid and the light snow in the tracks is great for classic. Good coverage on the trails, so no concern with bare spots. Expect great skiing tomorrow.
