Good snow Saturday

We still have good amounts of snow Saturday morning.  And there's that blizzard arriving Tuesday!

PIlot Knob

Pilot Knob road has been groomed for both skate and classic skiing this morning.  Pilot Knob lake has been groomed for skate only(still a little thin for classic tracks thanks to the late freeze).

Temperatures were in the low 20's while grooming and the trails looks great!  Should be fun skiing this morning but will get a little too soft this afternoon.

Golf course

The golf course has been groomed for classic skiing only.  The Lodge and MAJOPA areas have been groomed for skate skiing only.  Due to time constraints I could not groom for both styles throughout the entire trail.  It looks like the grooming went quite well and I look forward to trying it out.

If you would like to help groom please contact me!

Pilot Knob

The skating deck on the road through Pilot Knob has been rejuvenated this morning while the classic tracks were still decent.  Also the loop on Pilot Knob lake has been groomed for skating but no classic tracks were set.

Great morning for skiing

The road through Pilot Knob groomed up very nicely this morning.  And it was great to have so many other folks to enjoy it with!

Pilot Knob road

The road through Pilot Knob State Park has been groomed this morning for both classic and skate style skiing.  Thanks to a good base and the snow we received Friday morning it looks to be in very good shape.

Golf course

The golf course has been groomed tonight.  The snow was a bit chunky from the meltdown last week and refreeze so I'm guessing skiing conditions will only be fair to good.

It was 6 below zero while grooming.  What happened to El Nino?

Pilot Knob

The skating deck on the road at Pilot Knob was regroomed this morning and is in excellent shape.  The classic tracks do have some spots where the snow drifted in but overall is in good shape.

Pilot Knob

Pilot Knob has just been groomed for both classic and skate skiing and it looks really good.  Because it was still snowing and blowing I'll probably hit it again Saturday morning.  Will wait to groom golf course once the weather settles down a little.
