XC Ski Conditions 2/9/18
XC Ski Conditions 2/9/18- Forbush Corner: We will be grooming up both the east and the west trail systems today. Snow conditions are very good right now. It will be a great weekend of skiing. Big sales continue throughout the shop.
Hanson Hills: We are back to 100% All Trails are groomed with set track. Lodge and Trails open Daily at 9am.
XC Ski Headquarters: We received another half inch of snow last night, and it continues to snow this morning. We are forecast to get snow at least throughout the rest of the morning. The trails are in very good to excellent shape, and the snow we have received the past few nights is doing a great job of keeping the trails fresh. Classic tracks are firm and deep, and skating lanes are wide, firm and smooth. Groomer Mike will Ginzu snow comb all the trails this morning. A fantastic weekend of skiing is underway – overall great conditions prevail!
