Found: 1 red ice gripper on N. Douglas pioneer road. I’m at 321 4997.
4 runs compacting the new snow with the Ginzu has left a firm, fresh skateable surface. Diagonal was not reset but is holding up. Don T. did the first two laps and then handed off to sedgesprite.
Eaglecrest lower loop freshly groomed on Sunday morning. Excellent skate and classic ski conditions on the 4km route.
Campground and Lake groomed by about 10:30 AM.
Go easy on the dog walkers. These are multi-use trails that we all share. Double happiness today: Sedgesprite groomed in the am and Trail Doctor Peter Ord resuscitated the patient for the afternoon rush. Dog walkers you know what to do. Help each other out.
Sedgesprite made 4 passes with the ginzu and Trail Doctor Peter Ord cleaned up the surgery. Walking loop inside of Skating loop. Easter egg loop at the end by the cliffs. Great skiing.
Skating the lake from the Visitor Center to the West flank of the glacier, to Skaters Cabin, around the campground and back to VC. Lake conditions were variable but very skatable, especially on the rolled section near skaters. Stay away from the glacier face (new ice) despite the foot path there.
