    Morning
    Nordic Loop and upper meadows
    Well, we sure have the snow today. Maybe 2 feet at the upper snow stake on the 5K. Ethan and Peter went out early and were able to groom the two lower loops of the 5K. The snow on the upper loop has been track packed so the surface is rough but soft. These conditions make for excellent touring on both the 5K and in the meadows. Enjoy this opportunity! Jim
