Due to warm afternoon temperatures, the snow surface was icy from melting and refreezing overnight. The crew ran the scarifying equipment on most runs to break up the surface crust. Since grooming when temperatures are over fifty only creates a mess, we groomed in advance of tomorrow the warmest day of the week. The equipment covered all the ski runs. A track was set against the inside banks and a broad skate lane groomed on most runs. The exception were Elderberry between the Benches and Ian’s Hut and Eagle Run where the surface was treated only by the snow machines.
Two additional snowshoe trails were checked for downed trees. Ski & Shoe is clear of any obstructions that impede passage. Joe D’s Jump is clear except for one downed tree that can be passed under with a little difficulty. All other snowshoe trails are clear with the exception of Jannettes Jaunt that has numerous trees down, but these are not impeding passage.
