Ski Trail Conditions
December 24, 2017
Rolled all the trails again today, the snow had set better than expected from yesterday and the trails now are in fair to good shape with still a few thin spots and a few icy spots.
Regrettably someone drove a razor up the west side road by the tennis court and out on the ski trails to the north end then back again we’ll need more snow before we can fill in those ruts. I did pull the city’s chain through the post and attached it with a wire but I don’t have a key for the lock so we’ll need someone next week to lock the chain to stop others from driving up there. If we get the snow they are predicting for tonight and tomorrow I’ll roll the trails again Tuesday.
Rolled the trails for the first time this morning. We still need more snow there are some wet spots, some thing spots and some grass still above the snow, but if you're careful it should be ok to ski. I plan to go over the trails again tomorrow afternoon if it works out.

The trails are in good shape going into winter. The City has mowed, we have a new bridge and several new culverts on the spring loop, quite a bit of brush clearing has been done, the machines are currently at Mountain Mod for repairs and prep, the wands have been set and flagged, we even have a little snow, not quite enough for me to ski yet, but some folks have been skiing the last few days. We've re-routed the lower trail due to flooding from the pond, we'll now go across the ball diamond area and out to the trail, I think this will work fine but let me know if you have concerns. Please let me know if you will be able to groom this winter so I can come up with a schedule later in the month. I plan to begin rolling the trails when the machines are good to go and we get some more snow. Jeri and I are looking forward to another good year of skiing out there with everyone.
