Cross Country Ski Headquarters Ski Report – Thursday, Jan. 12, 2017

Groomer George did a yeoman’s job of grooming all the trails yesterday with spectacular results! Not only did he Ginzu snowcomb the skating lanes to perfection he also set nice deep tracks and picked up all the debris left by Tuesday nights windstorm. This morning Ginzu Dana will re-groom all the trails, and with last night’s inch or so of fresh snow, will have excellent results.
