XC Ski Headquarters: Groomer George did a yeoman’s job of grooming all the trails yesterday with spectacular results! Not only did he Ginzu snowcomb the skating lanes to perfection he also set nice deep tracks and picked up all the debris left by Tuesday nights windstorm. This morning Ginzu Dana will re-groom all the trails, and with last night’s inch or so of fresh snow, will have excellent results. We now have a 7 to 10 inch packed base and 8 to 12 inches of snow in the woods. Conditions are excellent for skating and classic skiing on all 8 trails!
