11AM UPDATE: GROOMED: Starlight, Caboose and Cabin Lanes, All of Essex Road, Pileated, Highline Down, Essex Creek Down, Towering Pines Down
The trails are quite soft, as expected, but the grooming turned out pretty darn good! Be cautious on sharper turns and corners, they came out rough due to the soft base. As temperatures drop, beware of the rough chunks potentially freezing into solid chunder balls on curves. Ski in control!
7:30am UPDATE: It’s going pretty alright! The groomer reports that places with straightaways and gentle curves with be the go to. Anything with sharp corners is coming out rough due to the base being so mushy from the rain and warm temps. The base has not had a chance to refreeze.
GROOMED (so far, will update as more is completed): Essex Road to Kendi’s, Pileated, currently heading to Highline Down and Essex Creek Down
Good Morning! It is 6:30am.
The snow yesterday was such a welcome sight! All of that rain over the last few days dropped our settled base down to 32 inches.
It is currently 29 degrees. Our temps are still a bit warm but the groomer is going to try it out this morning and see how it goes. FINGERS CROSSED that it goes well.
The National Weather Service is calling for a high of 32 degrees and a mostly cloudy day. We will update as we hear from the groomer. Stay tuned!
