We had a good turnout today for the early season snow. The groomers worked hard this morning to renovate about 20 km of skate lanes for the 9 AM skiers. Most skiers arrived as the classic tracks were softening about mid day. With temps getting up to 40 today and sunshine, skiers were happy to be out on real snow in the woods. Temps are down to 35 but the trails is frozen again and we will be back out with a full groom team in the early AM.
Looks like Saturday temps will be warm again so it is important to pick your time of day for skiing. I do not expect the base to go away, it is an honest 3-4 inches and solid with a few thin areas on the hill crests and under the conifers.
We are planning to groom daily.
