The Lodge and Krysilis properties are still holding snow very well in the second half of March! These parts of the ski trail were groomed for both classic and skate style skiing tonight. So if you would like to say that you've skied in Iowa in the Spring, come on out!
There is still plenty of snow in the Lodge/Krysilis areas. I groomed for skating only there today. Let it refreeze this evening and it should be very fast! It looks like a little more snow is on the way later tonight and tomorrow.
It looks like we received about 8" to 10" of heavy snow. I groomed a set of tracks for classic skiing on the Lodge and Krysilis properties tonight. I have no plans on doing anything on the golf course due to time limitations and some water/slush there. Enjoy the last of the snow!
I went out tonight and set new classic ski tracks on our main ski trail using a newly made snowmover. The first picture below shows what the snowmover leaves on the first pass. The second picture shows the 2nd pass with the tracksetter behind the snowmover. The tracks aren't as straight as the Ginzu would leave but there is plenty of snow at the bottom. The skate lanes were also lightly groomed but are very thin. Is this the last weekend of skiing?
