RECENT TRAIL REPORTS

  • Saturday, Jan 31st
    Morning
    5K Loop
    Chuck got out on the 5K loop today and lightly scuffed the surface. A few rocks were turned up during grooming, so ski w/ caution and toss a few of those acorns off the trail. Only 2 passes but enough for a pretty decent skate lane. Snow is still coming one of these weeks. Stay tuned and join the GNSC and don't lose hope.
  • 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.
