  • Trails rolled 1/17/2012

    Rolled all the trails the evening of 1/17. No track set. Parking lot plowed. Lots of blowing snow. Based on predictions, if we hit the trail with the groomer tomorrow it should be in mint shape. More snow predicted for Wednesday night!!

  • Hoping the Warm Day Isn’t Too Warm

    I was very pleased to see lots of people using the trails this weekend. Spread the word because the more the merrier! We ran the ginzu once around all the loops last night to smooth things out from the traffic this weekend. We also trackset the north loop. Hopefully the trails won’t see much use […]

  • Post Ski Update on Conditions

    Let me start by saying that I don’t plan to do a posting every time I do anything as “significant” as fart at the trail park. Sorry for a bunch of posts in the last 36 hours but I am a little stoked right now.  Yesterday was the first good skiing possible at the park. […]

  • Time to ski!!

    Parking lot is plowed and the trails are groomed. Time to ski!!! Went out with the ginzu this morning to smooth out the skate lane and try to put down some classic track (Andy, you can’t say I don’t do anything for you:)). The skate lane is in great shape. There are still some “hairy” […]

    The park had about 6″ of nice dense snow this evening. it was wonderful to see a couple more inches than in town. It compacted down to at least 1.5″ which is more than we have had at any other point out there this year. Hopefully mother will keep this up and provide another inch […]

  • Update on Trail Conditions – 1/4/2012

    This morning I headed out to the trails for a quick pre-work ski. The good news is that it was skiable but the bad news is that there are still some spots out there that are pretty thin. With rock skis it is ready to go. With nice skis you are going to need to […]

  • Probably good to ski on Wednesday!

    We got 2-3″ more inches of snow in the last 24 hours so I went out with the roller again tonight to pack in the new snow. All in all, things are looking pretty good considering how much (little?) snow we have gotten. The above picture was after 2 passes over the trails. I did […]

  • Rolling, Rolling, Rolling…

    I made a trip to the park last night to check out the condition. Was really hoping that there was more snow on the ground than there was by the Big Lake. Luckily there was more but the soggy ground was melting a lot of the snow so there was only about 1″ of snow […]
