Monday March 18, 2013

Had a great day of skiing yesterday. Like today it started out quite cold and by 11AM the trails had been groomed had warmed enough so the snow was easy to ski on.

The Mackinac Cut, Wild Turkey, Rolling Hills, Trapper’s Cabin, Manitou, Adventure and Blizzard trails all have fresh groomed snow on a solid base. The tracks are quite good. The skating lanes are in excellent condition.

Groomer Stu will be Ginzu grooming the trails this morning and possibly this afternoon if we get the forecasted snow..
