Forbush Corner: We are going to have our lighted loop open from 7-9 this Saturday for a moonlight ski.
$5 trail fee and $5 ski rentals. Come on out and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate afterwards.
Hanson Hills: We received another dusting of snow on top of our firm base. Groomer Jason is out this morning freshening up all skate lanes on all trails and setting fresh tracks on the Red this morning. Lodge and Trails Open at 9am.
XC Ski Headquarters: We received a dusting of snow last night, which is just enough to cover the last remaining crusty spots leftover from yesterday’s full day grooming effort. Groomer George was very successful in grinding up the crust on the skating lanes, which created very good skating conditions yesterday. Ginzu Dana is snow combing the skating lanes as of this morning. The tracks are still too frozen to reset, but this fresh dusting of snow should improve their condition greatly for classic skiing. We have a 9 to 11 inch base, with 14 to 18 inches of snow in the woods.
