Cross Country Ski Report – Thursday, February 21st, 2013

Thursday Feb 21, 2013

Trails groomed up very nicely yesterday. The blades and snowcomb on the Ginzu Groomer do an excellent job mixing and binding the fresh snow to the existing base.

The Mackinac Cut, Wild Turkey, Rolling Hills, Tall Pines, Trapper’s Cabin, Manitou, Adventure and Blizzard trails are all open and have very good conditions for skate and classic sking.

Groomer young Bob will start regrooming all the trails early this morning.

Friday: 50% chance of snow showers. High near 30. Winds E 10 to 20 mph.

Ice, Glaze, Barespots: No Barespots, Fresh groomed snow with deep base

The Stone Turtle Day Lodge lunch specials today include an array of sandwiches, Paninis (all served on Stone House Bread) and Famous Spicy chili and Veggie chili served with a warm sourdough roll.

It’s time to demo some new skis on this fresh snow! We are a Fischer Hole Ski Demo and Race center, an Atomic Race Demo Center, a Salomon Race Demo center, an Alpina Demo center, and a Rossignol Touring center. Our selection of skis, boots, poles and bindings is very strong and diverse for racing and touring, and there is no charge to try any of them. There’s no better way to find the perfect ski package than to try them first! The “Let it Snow Price Match with Better Service Sale” continues!

Looks like a fine day to go X-C Skiing!
