Conditions and grooming (January 29, 2017)

Skating conditions are incredibly good.  If you are new to skating these are the conditions to improve your skills.  As many trails as possible will be groomed for skating this AM.  Top of Ken's Drop and the Entrance Trail will have no new grooming.  Ski lower part of Ken's Drop with caution because drainage is opening up.  We should have the Pond Loop in good condition today.  Fat Bikes will be on a section of the trail between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM today.  They are suppose to be on the side of the trail.


Conditions and grooming (January 28, 2017)

For those of you who like to skate ski, these conditions are for you.  Skate lanes have been groomed wide and flat, and there is enough of an edge for you to balance on one ski.  These are the conditions that help you to feel like you are a great skate skier.  Don't miss it.!   


Conditions are too hard at this time to set track, but keep tuned.


Conditions and grooming (January 27, 2017)

Trails are open again!!   Unfortunately we cannot set any track but the skate lane is flat and fast.  Not all trails are groomed but as it warms today you probably can skate on the crust.  Top of Perkins Ridge Trail has an open drainage with pallets.  We have not covered the pallets with snow yet.  Trail side parking lot is closed.  Please park in our other lot across the street.  Baxter Outdoor Race is tomorrow at 10:00AM.  Course is on their webpage.


Weekend Activities (January 28-29)

Despite a tragic storm that I thought might put our ski season on hold, I think we will survive.  Amos and Steve's preliminary report is that tomorrow they hope to be able to turn the pavement-like layer of ice into some decent skate lanes.  It will be very fast, and there are still some water hazards, so please use appropriate caution.  


Conditions and grooming (January 26, 2017)

Our plan is to resume grooming Friday morning.  Even though conditions are not ideal it looks like we have a little colder weather coming.  Our goal is to open up some skating first.   We really need some new snow for setting an acceptable track.
