RECENT TRAIL REPORTS

  • Sunday, Jan 25th
    Afternoon
    5K Nordic Loop
    Tim track packed the Nordic Loop today. We had about 4 inches of light powder in the last few days - not exactly the dump we had expected... Tim's efforts will make for a real nice base when we get a little bit more snow. Since the snow is so light, rock skis are recommended.
  • Sunday, Jan 4th
    Morning
    5K Nordic Loop
    The hard snow surface on the Nordic Trail was scratched up a bit this morning. Snow cover is so thin that some rocks were brought to the surface by the groomer. But the trail is skiable! Use caution on the downhills, and as always - have fun! Jim
