Happy New Year!

A very small loop for skating and classic skiing was groomed right next to the ice rink in Pammel Park yesterday.  It's very small and very flat, but could be fun for beginners.  The rink was having fresh water poured on it yesterday with plans to open today.

Classic tracks only were set around the lake bed on Pilot Knob Lake (it's dry now) and around the campground.  A newly built funneling device that grabs snow from both sides and funnels it down to a 2' wide area was used.  This should be useful in the future when there isn't enough newly fallen snow to set tracks.

The best access would be to park at the entrance to Pilot Knob campground and look for the tracks.  There is probably about 2km of track set.

The main Forest City Ski Trail still has about 1.3km of track at the East Woods Access and about .5 km at the Lodge & Krysilis. And we still have well over 5km of skating on the entire course.

We're trying to make the best out of thin snow and we're always wishing for more.  I hope you enjoy the trails in and around Forest City!
