We had a busy weekend with good snow. The snow has been steady and temps cold. we are opening the Highlands Tuesday and hopefully the new backend of Tamarack 2 track. That will put us at 62 km of trails open. The Highlands make take a few days to smooth out so use caution on the hills . The main trails are being skied w race skis and are well covered w good smooth skate decks and full depth classic tracks.
Demo days Saturday 10-3.
..we picked up another 3-4 inches last night and while we grooming we got another 3-4 this morning. Skiing was a bit soft today but we are now well covered except a few wet areas. , we will regroom in the early am. We may have the Highlands open Sunday or Tuesday 42 km open and most skiers on good skis

We regroomed everything again today and are skiing on about 42 k, most with decent classic tracks. We had the small bully out this afternoon, it is almost ready…just neeeds to get skied in a bit more. I am heading back out tonight but wanted to update . 4 groomers scheduled for early am. Saturday should be great skiing
we picked up another 4 inches of snow last night and maybe an inch during the day, Groomer’s were out all da y and we had Happy skiers. By mid day we had 42 km groomed about 12 k w classic tracks. We r working on opening more km every day as it keeps snowing and staying cold.
The trails are covered with about 2-3 inches of base , there are 5% icy areas where frozen wet spots, there are 5 -10 areas where grass was scalped while leveling the trails. The. Trails are continuing to improve with the cold temps and snow.
we had another great day of grooming and weather! We smoothed out the main trails and saw they had frozen with the cold temps. Then we started in on the wet areas :Sulo’s Loop, Highlands entrance etc. these trails are freezing down tonight and we will work on trying to open them for the weekend. We should have about km groomed for Thursday at 10 am when we open.
