Last night a couple of our groomers rolled and track set M, S, H and K loops, so there is fresh terrain to enjoy this morning. For the other loops set under the forest canopy, we didn’t accumulate enough snow to groom D and the riverside loops R, X and C, but they are still enjoyable to ski.
For those of you that prefer to not ski the hills on M loop, Kings Road was also track set (middle or intermediate M).
There will be an attempt later this morning to start packing and levelling B loop, and the parts of M, S, and H that have until now been left natural, so please watch out for the groomers.
Last night 2 of our groomers groomed as much as they could with the limited new snow that we have. For skate ski enthusiasts, M, S, H and K were rolled, but not all of S (H provides the gentle downhill run back to M). For people that enjoy classic skiing, D, R, X, C, M, S, H and K were track set. With the cool night, the grooming should have set up nicely overnight. We need alot more snow before we can groom B and R loops. ENJOY
We have some limited grooming for you to enjoy tomorrow. For skate skiers, Little M and K (hydro lines) are flattened. It’s a bit bumpy, but that’s what we have.
For classic skiers we have a single track set on Little M, and on Less Little M (King’s Road to M). We also have double track set on both sides of K under the hydro lines.
Get out to enjoy this tomorrow because it’s supposed to rain all day on Thursday. If the single tracks are too busy for your comfort, ski the double tracks on K.
We need more snow before we can groom the other trails.
CAUTION: if you ski the ungroomed section of M Loop, be cautious crossing the second bridge over Kennedy Creek (Ormrod’s). It had iced over a few weeks ago.
A big thank you to all the coaches and assistant coach voluteers, jackrabbits, bunny rabbits and parents, and especially to my husband for making our Meet & Greet a good time. Skis and poles are decorated, tentative groups are tweaked, crafts for Bunnyrabbit balance on ski games are ready to go, and we got a chance to mix and mingle and welcome new families to DRXC and to Deep River. We should really do more social gatherings like this and keep growing our xc ski club community!
C has been added to the list of classic trails open that also includes D, R, X and M. Only one tree had to be removed from across the trail on C – a new one since yesterday, I believe. If you see any downed trees, please report them to the executive via the link on the main site. All open trails have a new classic track on them as of today. Future priorities include widening M for the skaters and opening the outer loops (aka S, H and B).
Note: The apparent track on S only goes to ‘The Top’ and is the result of a rescue mission for an injured skier. S is not yet fully open.
