The Eaglecrest lower loop is groomed to perfection today. Skate and classic. Go ski!
Groomed at 10am. Conditions are soft wet granular. Still good skating and firm classic track.
I will be resetting the tracks at Montana Ck. between about 9:30 and 11 this morning.
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.
