  • Friday, March 19, 2021

    Kyle and Jim groomed a very cold surface this morning.  As a result, the groomed surfaces are pretty fuzzy – which can make for a fun skating surface.  New classic tracks were set on most of the trails, except for the Arlberg bike path.  It’s kind of cool out there, so when you go for a ski on the awesome trails, make sure to wear your woolies....
