Most ski trails were lightly renovated and groomed Friday evening by volunteer DJ Grey, leaving rough corduroy. Early season conditions exist with thin snow coverage in the more exposed areas such as Westgate corner (SW corner) and Lynn's Frozen Thunder (trail running parallel to the upper parking lot). Track setting has not been redone, however the track set teaching grid in the driving range is likely in great shape.
The pin flagged shared snowshoe/fat bike trail system was in great shape Friday and will remain so in cold temperatures, until the snow softens during the day with sun exposure and warming air temperatures. When the snow surface is hard, the riding has been great.
Keep in mind grooming ski trails costs money - gasoline and machine maintenance are two examples... and the upgrading of snowmobiles and drag-grooming equipment, hopefully! Please consider financially supporting free access to volunteer maintained ski, snowshoe, and fat bike trails by donating and/or becoming a member of SNO.
Have fun out there!
