After many rounds on 5 K for compaction, groomers put a smooth finish on it before wrapping up today. Surface is still soft and classic skis are still recommended. Tim came out to put in both Upper Valley Loop and the connector to the church in with a snowmobile track groom. We will continue to work towards getting all valley trails packed in as conditions allow. Winter has finally come ! Get out and enjoy it .pz...

01 Jan Happy New Year Groom. 5 k is now skiable 1/1/20 PM

Too much snow this AM but Tim went out this afternoon with his personal machine. Eric from Alyeska showed up with an aly machine and helped out too. We now have a soft tracked surface suitable for classic skiing. A little too powdery for skate skiing as of now. We will be working hard towards firming up the 5 K, and moving towards other trails as time allows. Probably Upper Meadow loop is most likely to be next on our list. Thanks to all the folks involved today getting our great powder snow firmed up and heading back to being a ski trail. Shane, Tim and Eric!  Happy new year!  ...
