Really, it’s Spring?

The only trails not groomed today are B and H. Everything else has a track and M and S are good for skating as well. This is possible the last groom (although, never say never) but there is still some good skiing to be had.

We had to cut through a few trees to make it around the trails so if you see a tree down, please feel free to contact the executive or the groomers so that we can carry the appropriate tools to make it through.

Happy trails.

Spring skiing

M, S and K were groomed for skating this morning.  There were some big branches on the trails and ground is showing through on the edges.  It is next to impossible to set track in the ice where the existing track is so DRX and C will be left alone.

Happy trails.

Spring

While the season is not necessarily over,  our ability to groom diminishes as temperatures warm.  The machines tend to overheat when the temperatures are warm. They will shut off automatically and not allow us to use them.  Enjoy what we have and perhaps we’ll get some temperatures where some grooming can be done.  As you know, our narrow trails start to accumulate debris at this time of year which also interferes with the grooming process and slushy snow starts to turn into ice, which is ungroomable.  It’s not over ’til the robin sings and we will do what we can.  Enjoy the sun and the signs of renewed life on our chunk of land.

Happy trails.

Wednesday, March 4th

Everything was groomed this morning although some windblown snow has affected some open areas.  Any ruts will be very hard after tonight’s cold snap.  Tis the time of year when chicken little sees evidence to support his hypothesis. If you encounter big bits, feel free to toss them sideways.
