January meltdown

After six days of above freezing temperatures, there isn't too much snow left anymore!  I went skiing on Pilot Knob Lake today but it was in very poor shape.  Hard to believe the lake was so nice just last week.

Sunny day at Pilot Knob

Beautiful day to be skiing on the lake at Pilot Knob State Park!

Pilot Knob grooming Sunday

The skating deck on the road going through Pilot Knob State Park was retouched with the Ginzu this morning.  I left the classic track alone since it still looked pretty good.

Also the lake at Pilot Knob has been groomed for both skating and classic skiing.

The Lodge and Majopa properties are still great for skating but have no classic tracks.

The golf course has not been groomed because of lack of snow there thanks to high winds.

It was great to see so many out at Pilot Knob yesterday!  Enjoy.

Friday night grooming

The trail at the Lodge and Majopa have been groomed for skating and conditions look great.  There was too much snow blown off of the golf course to do anything there.  

I took the leveling drag over the road at Pilot Knob to take down some of the drifts.  The plan is to take the Ginzu  groomer over the road early Saturday morning.  It should be ready for a skate deck and classic tracks because of good snow depth.

Groomed golf course

The golf course, Lodge & Majopa were groomed with the Ginzu tonight.  Because of the low moisture content it will probably still be soft.  More passes will be made once the weather settles down a bit.  No classic tracks have been set yet.

Rolled new snow

The golf course, Lodge & Majopa trails have been rolled along with the Pilot Knob road.  Sometime this week we'll take the Ginzu out and finish grooming based on weather conditions.  I measured anywhere from 5 to 8" of new snow from Sunday through tonight!

Happy New Year!

The lake out at Pilot Knob State Park was rolled Wednesday afternoon.  There was only the 1 to 2" of snow that we received last Saturday so there was not much to work with.  There is not enough snow to roll or groom on any of our other trails.
