Peter groomed the 5K Nordic Loop early this morning.  He reported that there was 2 to 3 inches of new snow last night.  New corduroy, but the classic tracks were not refreshed.  He's headed to the Moose Meadow now and will groom the new snow.  We're still not able to groom in the Upper Meadows because of numerous wet areas.  It hasn't been cold enough to freeze the ground yet.  Enjoy Winter!...
