Hard work yesterday paid off today. New, wider skate lane and easy grooming. Thanks boys. Cory K. set this one today as well in a grooming blitz. No ginzu here, strictly a roll out and a drag with the track setter. Easter egg: it snowed all day on Montana Creek., while it rained on back loop.
In our ceaseless efforts to improve grooming we recruited Cory K from the Treadwell Ice Arena. Yes, he is one of the Zamboni drivers. So if you liked his work today it is all him. If you have complaints, it was probably his trainer Sedgesprite. Don’t worry, Cory K will be on his own giving it that fine attention to detail here on out. Track was rolled and set. A little soft in the skate lane but the new classic looked good. Warming temps kept us off the lake ice. Mixed rain and snow.
Eaglecrest groomed the lower loop for skate and classic this morning, but it was blizzard conditions most of the day and the track was quickly buried under soft snow. Still skiable, and the good news is we are getting excellent coverage all over the track as there was no rain, only snow falling.
Eaglecrest is grooming the lower loop for skate and classic every day this week during the holiday break and conditions are excellent. Good snow coverage over the entire 6 km loop. Nice deep classic tracks.
After an equipment delay entire track rolled, groomed and both classic and skate tracks reset. Conditions are wet snow but excellent tracks set. Might be great night skiing conditions tonight. Get out there!
Classic and Skate set. Grooming was challenging to day Snow heavy and damp.
Snow was too deep and heavy for the ginzu. I rolled the track and set classic tracks. Great conditions for classic! Coverage is excellent. Skate track is lumpy and soft, but at least it is packed. We need the snow to set up for ginzu grooming.. Lots of foot traffic going to the sledding hill, track will be chewed up in that area, but hey, the kids are having fun. I set the track behind Methodist Camp, with a bonus loop out in the pine muskeg at the north end. Be aware there is a bridge out on the trail back there that you have to work around.
