The grooming started at 9am with cold temps.The lake has lost its snow skin and is ice, ice baby. I drilled 50′ out and got to 8″ but was unable to push the drill any deeper due to hard, hard ice.
Skate track in great shape and classic remains solid and fast.
Touching up skate and classic, if possible this monring.
Eagle Beach was groomed for skate Sunday, Jan 1 afternoon. I left the classic track as-is. It’s OK – icy in spots, good in others. The skate track is very good and will set up overnight to be excellent tomorrow morning (although one skater already told this groomer it is currently ‘epic’). The only flaw on the track is some scattered tree debris here and there.
Lower loop at Eaglecrest is fantastic for both skate and classic
Both classic and skate tracks in great condition. Wonderful winter setting and fast skiing. Grooming done by 8:15 AM so track should set up well by the time skiers arrive this morning. Go for a invigorating ski today after your New years eve bash last night!
6 km of perfectly groomed nordic trails on the lower loop at Eaglecrest this weekend and through next week if this weather holds. Skate or classic – it’s all good. Cold temps, easy waxing, beautiful scenery.
