Sunday skiing

Some Sunday skiing action at Pilot Knob.  The classic tracks were in really good shape on both the lake and road.  Skating was a little slow yet, but much better than last weekend's slow snow.   More snow is on the way for the third night in a row.  I think we're good now.  I'm ready for a break in new snow grooming and ready to get the skate deck firmed up better.

 We received another 1 to 2 inches of snow last evening with very little wind.  I groomed all of Pilot Knob this morning for both classic and skate skiing.  This is a higher moisture content snow than what we had a little over a week ago.  I expect it to set up much better and hopefully provide some good glide this afternoon.

PIlot Knob

 I regroomed the lake and the road in Pilot Knob State Park this morning.  It should be very good for both classic and skate skiing.

Weekend skiing

 It was great to see so many skiers out at the knob this weekend.  The only negative is that the snow did not set up very well, so it was soft and slow.

I regroomed the skate deck on Pilot Knob road, along with the skate deck and classic tracks on the lake early this morning.  Hopefully it will set up better and make for better glide.

Pilot Knob State Park

The lake and road at Pilot Knob were rolled/packed at 5pm on Friday and at 3am Saturday morning.  I just groomed with the Ginzu finishing by 11am Saturday morning.  It will be soft today but hopefully skiable by later in the afternoon.  It should be good Sunday afternoon.

Big snowfall

 I got the first round of packing in during the snow tonight. I was surprised how much it was piling up! It will take a bit of time and work to beat this down to a skiable surface.

Pilot Knob Lake

 I used the Ginzu last night to groom the lake.  The snow is very thin, but it skied pretty well this morning with only a few spots that were showing the ice.
