Cross Country Ski Report – Friday, January 18th, 2013

Groomer Stu snowcombed all the trails yesterday and reported that what we have open should stay open, and what we have closed should stay closed till we get more snow.

We had a lot of skiers and snowshoers yesterday. Everyone came back happy except the nice fellow from Ohio who mistakenly skied the very marginal Tall Pines trail. He went back out on the snowy Rolling Hills and Trapper’s Cabin trails and was much happier after that.

We did get more lake effect snow last night and it is still snowing! We will have excellent skiing for MLK weekend!

Groomer Bob will Ginzu groom and snowcomb the fresh snow this morning. Trails will be ready by 10AM.
