So, as of this morning, the XC trails have been scratched up to get rid of lumps and stuff.  The track isn't very deep but there is a nice run up to the Bucky cabin for anyone interested.  Expect slippery conditions in the morning and softer conditions in the afternoon.  Snow was actually quite nice and soft on Tuesday afternoon and wasn't sticky on my skis at all.  Also easy to maintain social distancing.

Tom Duchastel Groomed the Nordic area yesterday

We are in spring conditions so expect the tracks to be hard and fast in the morning and slowing down in the afternoon.
The best time is probably 1pm to 4pm.
We have a deep base , and we will continue to groom  until melt water starts to flow and erode some areas.

The warm temperatures and bright sun make for very pleasant skiing but watch for variable track surface
especially on the bright sunny days where sun exposed areas will be softer and slower than shaded areas.

I groomed and set track on the main track and the dog track this afternoon.

The conditions are very good spring skiing.
 Expect hard fast tracks in the morning and better conditions in the afternoon when the tracks warm up and soften.

Hi All
Dan Trobak is grooming this week. I will be on next week.

 We are just back from the Nordic area - lots of new snow.
 It hasn't been groomed since Friday , but a number of users are keeping the tracks open. There is 6 inches of new snow as I write this with more to come.
 If you like new fallen snow the conditions are excellent , but slow
It is sticky so make sure you take your favorite wax.

I got up to the cabin this morning around 9am. Temp was about -2 and not a cloud in sight.

I groomed and set track on the Dog Track , Bucky , and main track.
Snow was hard but not icy (except a bunch of spots on the dog track) and the tracks are nice in most spots.
