Cross Country Ski Report – Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

As of 7:30AM we have received a good 2 inches of fresh snow, light snow continues to fall and the temperature is 18 F.

Groomer Stu spent a lot of time grooming and preparing all the trails for the snow we received last night. This morning’s Ginzu grooming will create excellent conditions for skate skiing on all trails. With the fresh snow the tracks will be a treat to ski in.

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 very good. The skating lanes are in great condition.

Today: Snow showers. High 28F. Winds WSW at 15 to 25 mph. Chance of snow 60%. Snow accumulating 1 to 2 inches.

Today’s Stone Turtle Day Lodge special continues to be a Turkey Panini made with your choice of any or all: Tomatoes, Spinach, Pesto, Jalapenos, Banana peppers or Provolone. Of course Famous Spicy Chili and Veggie Chili served with a warm sourdough roll will also be served.

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 Salomon Equipe 10 S-Lab Skate ski. Often referred to as the Ferrari. The “March Madness, aka Labor Day Sale” is in full swing.

X-C Skiing is a cure for Cabin Fever!
