Groomer's ski

Eric and I skied most of the course yesterday, going over changes to the grooming path.  It was ungroomed snow, but it had great glide and it was a beautiful day!  We enjoyed seeing an eagle perched in a tree on the course too!

I took the roller out on the lower portion of the golf course, the WIT grounds and the Lodge loops but there was not enough snow to leave grooves for classic skiing.  The Lodge loops were a lot of fun and it was great to see kids snow boarding down the Lodge hill.  The upper portion of the golf course could not be reached since the cart path had the snow plowed for some work still being done.  We hope for that to be covered with the next snow.

The new GinzuGroomer has arrived!

Thanks to a grant from the Hanson Foundation we've been able to purchase a brand new GinzuGroomer.  This is capable of grooming for both diagonal stride and skate style skiing.  It just arrived on October 21st.  The Lodge Resort Hotel and Restaurant has offered to store it in their garage which will make it easy to access our trail!

The trail was groomed the evening of Friday the 4th.  It looks to be in good shape with the exception of a few bare spots that can be skied around.

The new Forest City Ski Trail was last groomed for both skating and classic skiing late Friday night January 21 2011.  The trail consists of approximately 2.5 miles of combined skating and classic trails on both the Bear Creek Golf Course and Lodge properties.  Plus there is an additional 0.8 miles of classic only trail located in the East Park Woods.  Jeff
