From Dan Miles

Tom and I went up this morning to groom. All of the Moose Meadows have been rollered including all of the routes of the adventure park and the trail in the woods. 

Tracks have been reset to the prayer flags and the dog track. We worked at widening the trail in the main traffic areas with Tom using his sled to pack down the sides while I followed with the groomer.

Of course there is so much snow coming down that most of this will be covered by tomorrow. Tom will be up on the trail early tomorrow morning To lay tracks for the ski group.

Great skiing!

After the snow, some sun! It seems a little grey in Kaslo but we were just poking above the clouds at the Nordic center.
Conditions are fabulous! Soft but firm, glides effortlessly but not too fast (if that's believable!).
Track is set from the parking lot, prayer flags and dog track area.

Excellent conditions (though I didn't ski to the higher cabin, I can imagine it's pretty good skiing up there too)
Air temperature @ ~9:15AM -16.5C; air temperature @~10:00AM -15.0C, slight NE breeze.
Skied on a pair of skis (with racing bases) on Green grip wax (-8C to -15C) and found the track fast and firm.

Nordic trails are all packed and track-set.  Snow conditions are excellent.  There was actually some sun up there this morning.  Go enjoy it.

The warm temperatures , heavy snow , and rain last week left a very hard and slippery set of tracks.
 Nigel started mixing this new dry snow in with the old snow pack yesterday. Which improved the track a lot.

Dave and Jean will be continuing to incorporate the new snow into the Nordic tracks today and tomorrow .
They will be also getting the arena ready for the ski school starting this Sunday.

The Ski school will be running the next 4 Sunday mornings , so the parking lot will be full in the mornings.
 Please carpool if possible.

 Roy Honkanen plowed to Bucky on Thursday , but we haven't had time to groom the cat tracks out yet , hopefully this Sunday or sooner if time permits.
 Conditions improve steadily and will be very good later today.
Hope you have a great day

From Troy Dustin skier today at 12:30

Kudos to Dave for all the work he's done today getting the trails into shape. Tough conditions to work under: plenty of wet, heavy snow, air temperatures above zero, snowbombs everywhere, and skiers all over the place!

Sincere thanks, Dave!

 snow conditions this morning are very nice and not particularly fast if that's what you like.  There is good track from the highway out to the prayer flags.  Dog track only has been roller packed.  It was around -4C at the cabin this morning and snow was still coming down.
