We picked up about four fresh last night , I will get a classic track out on the trails this morning and the BC is amazing.

So we have not groomed in a couple days , waiting to see what pans out with this system. The Nordic trails are variable between a glaze , slightly breakable crust and soft grit all within one trails length. Its still okay coverage overall. The BC is better up higher but not as high as the ridge where it got more wind. I guess we will see what happens tonight. I hope to groom with one our machines not sure which one yet.

update for 1-25-12

So believe it or not I thought it was pretty good this morning. I went out on waxless , edgeless and free formed around the groomed trails. The frozen tundra with a couple centimeters of fresh was fast on the down and just enough grip on the up. A few obstacles have reappeared but the coverage is enough that they are easy to dodge. The Back country however not so much , there is still the breakable crust with some loose frozen granular under that that isn't quite powder like anymore and it is stiff on the old tracks. With that said , our conditions once again can only improve with some cold and snowy weather I expect to see some nice cold smoke powder on a solid base. So for Nordic come anytime and the BC should be ready for later in the week and weekend. See you soon Rob D

got grooming

We were able to get some trails groomed and will continue tomorrow with classic track, with some lite snow tonight it could make nice conditions either discipline.


Well its cold , sunny and firm. We have flurries coming the next few days so it will improve through the weekend with temps rising I think Sunday could be a winner so you should probably come up all the days before to get your legs ready for whichever discipline you choose.

Its winter

We have snow , might not get out to groom it for tomorrow , I will try to keep you posted . The BC is awesome.


Good day folks. We picked up another 10 cm of snow yesterday with strong winds which favored the trails above the Cabin. The BC is skiing well with a solid base. We were able to Groom Broadway , Pond loop , upper Maple to Teardrop , Picnic and Valley loops for Skate and World cup for classic. Even if we don't get to Groom tomorrow I believe these trails will hold up quite well.

Report for 1-6-12

It has snowed about 6-8 inches in the last 48 hours improving our Nordic and Back Country trails. We have 2.5 k of groomed for Skate terrain on Broadway and about 6k of track set for classic on Picnic loop and World cup. The Bryant trail is well packed up to the cabin and the BC trails are great for snowshoeing. Even though early season conditions still exist there is some great Nordic skiing to be had out there.
