Forest City received quite a bit of snow last night. I used the roller this morning on the lake and road just to do an initial packing, before the wind picks up today and blows it all away. Once the wind calms and maybe once we get through a nasty cold spell I'll get out and start the grooming process. Once again it will probably take a few groomings to get this light weight snow packed down enough for good skiing.
Last night was a great night for skiing because of how well the trail was packed.
The skate deck and classic tracks on the lake at Pilot Knob have been regroomed this morning. The skate deck only on the road in the park has been regroomed. It's getting too shallow to reset the classic track but actually it didn't look bad. It should be a good day for skiing today. Please help pick up some of the sticks that have blown down from Thursday's wind! Thanks!
Today we received a little bit of rain and a good dusting of snow. The lake and road have been regroomed tonight. The road is a bit rough with the classic tracks down to the grass at times and I had some issues with sticks while grooming the skate portion. But the road is still skiable. The lake should be excellent for both classic and skate skiing.
The skate decks for both the lake and road have been refreshed this morning. Nice to see some usage on the trails from a cold day yesterday. The classic tracks on the road do go down to the grass in several places so not ideal. However the classic tracks on the lake look very good. Once again the lake is the place to ski today for both classic style skiing and skate style skiing!
The lake and road have been rolled twice yesterday and groomed with the Ginzu this morning. It will still be soft, but it will get better with more grooming and time. The lake looks like the best place to ski today.
We received quite a bit of light fluffy snow today (haven't actually measured it yet)! I rolled both the road and lake at Pilot Knob and will plan on doing it again later tonight. Hopefully it will be packed enough to groom up nicely tomorrow morning.
Spent the evening moving limbs and picking up sticks that I don't really want to run through the groomer. Looks like snow is coming. I'll try to pack it down before it blows away. The snowmobile is back from the shop and hopefully will run better. Maybe we'll have some decent skiing this weekend!
We only have a couple of dustings of snow out on the lake in Pilot Knob, but it is skiable. I was able to do some double poling around the perimeter and some skating in a small area on the west end. Conditions are poor but it was still good to be out skiing this morning!
The snowmobile is in the shop with some overheating issues. Hopefully I'll get that back soon along with some more snow. Happy New Year!
