Grooming Reports 2017 (snow line 541-566--2784)

February 24, 2017
This week we groomed starting Wednesday as weather conditions finally got cold with new snow.  We groomed out to Ruckle, Gordon Creek, Balloon Tree, through Spout Springs, 3719 (Coyote), Pole Trail, Shumway/Chalet loop, McIntyre loop, out to Jubilee, Bone Springs, Skyline Rd, 3711 shortcut, Timothy shortcut, Elk Trail, Powerline, to the store, bladed the clubhouse.  We went in and out of snowparks and highway crossings.  Things should be in great shape for the week-end as cold temperatures are setting the trails up nicely.

February 10th
All our grooming this week was done Tuesday and Wednesday due to weather conditions, as it warmed up beginning Wednesday afternoon and started raining through Thursday with an inch of rain on top of the snow.  Today, Friday, it is still predicted to be above freezing.  We did get the following areas groomed:   Chalet/Shumway loop, 3719 (Coyote) to Spout, up to Woodland, across the highway to the top of the hill, back Pole trail to Morning Creek Snow Park to the store, bladed the clubhouse, McIntyre loop, Powerline, Skyline, Jubilee Road to Bone Springs and back, Elk trail.  We have not been to Ruckle or Andies Prairie this week and probably won't get it done due to warm temperatures and sloppy slushy snow.
