Thursday March 21, 2013

We received enough snow this week that groomer Stu was able to set beautiful fresh tracks on all the trails yesterday. He also Ginzu groomed and snowcombed all the skating lanes. Great conditions.

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 deep and freshly set. The skating lanes are in excellent condition. The Tall Pines trail has Ginzu snowcombed skating and fresh shallow tracks set.

Today the Stone Turtle Day Lodge menu will include various Grilled Panini or un-grilled sandwiches made with freshly baked Stone House bread. Famous Spicy Chili and Veggie Chili will also be served with a warm sourdough roll.

We are a Fischer Race and Demo Center, an Atomic and Salomon Race and Demo Center and a Rossignol Touring and Demo center. A great ski to try today would be the Atomic XCruise 59. These skis can be described as an all around high performance nowax ski and are very stable and glide very well. The “March Madness, aka Labor Day Sale” is in full swing.
L ooks like a great weekend on the way for X-C Skiing!
