Tracks on golf course

The golf course was rolled again tonight to deal with the soft snow.  Classic tracks were made using the snowmover and tracksetter.  Hope to work on Pilot Knob on Saturday.

Pilot Knob road

The skating lane on the road through Pilot Knob has been scarified this morning.  The snow is old and there are lots of tiny twigs but it still makes for good skating.

Morning ski at Pilot Knob

The road at Pilot Knob was groomed this morning.  Skating Lane was good before it warmed up.  Tracks went down to the grass in spots.  Really enjoyed skate skiing with 6 others this morning!

Thursday grooming

Tracks have been set on the golf course.  I had to use the snowmover with tracksetter because of how thin the snow was in areas.

The Lodge & Majopa have been groomed for skating.

The skating deck on Pilot Knob road has been rejuvenated with the Ginzu.  The classic tracks are still decent.

Another inch of fresh snow

The skating deck was regroomed tonight on Pilot Knob road after receiving a good inch of snow today.  And it wasn't windy!  

Work has been done on Pilot Knob lake but was unable to finish because of pockets of slush under this weekend's snow.  Hopefully it will all refreeze soon so it can be finish groomed by this weekend.

Finished grooming Pilot Knob road

The road in Pilot Knob state park has been groomed for both skating and classic skiing.  The tracks do have some bad spots due to thin snow.  But the skate lane looks great.

February 1st snow

All of the trails were rolled early this morning.  Pilot Knob road was rolled a 2nd time and leveled tonight.  The trails need a night to set up before finishing the grooming process.

The golf course had a lot of areas with no snow thanks to the wind.  Pilot Knob road and lake have good snow coverage.  Will try to get out Monday night to finish up with the Ginzu.
