Grooming Update for 2020 March 11

An attempt was made this morning to groom the DRXC trails. We had to give up on this because the snowmobiles can’t deal with the granular icy snow that we have (engine overheating). We need new snow. We managed to set new track on loops D and R, but the tracks are not very good. Still, they are better than before grooming.

The skate trails seem to be fine for skate skiing.

grooming status for 2020 February 20

All DRXC trails were groomed today for classic skiing and skate skiing, including K Loop under the hydro lines. We have 100% grooming coverage.

For classic skiers that are concerned about the hills on M and D, a section of King’s Road has been track set to allow you to bypass the hill on M Loop. This shorter length of M (Medium M?) is a test to see if people find this beneficial, so be sure to dust off your skis if you have been holding back because of the hills. NOTE that King’s Road is a multi-use trail, so don’t be discouraged if some people snowshoe on the tracks or a passing snow mobile roughs up the track.
