Ever Since Scott Fischer hung up his spurs, the title of Number One Groomer has been up for grabs. John Staub made a lunge at it with a 5am start on the upper loop. Conditions conspired against him , (snow too soft), to take the title easily, but it was a yeoman’s effort. Quality control found a few tread break throughs, and some uneven work, but a few stretches of really nice corduroy and so his grade is average. He rates it good for ‘Pioneer Skiers’.
