I groomed and set all tracks this morning, It was snowing lightly at noon , and the conditions are very good to excellent , a few wet patches under overhanging trees

We need a couple of volunteers to run the winter in the forest ski tent this year. That means setting up the gear and being there to help folks try out skiing.  Let me know if you can take the lead it help out.  It is  on Feb 12th.

Good Morning:

I was afraid that conditions would be sticky, but actually the trail groomed and set track quite well.  It was about -2C at the equipment shed.

The trail is packed and tracked to the flags, down to the highway and out along the dog trail.  It was snowing lightly while I was there.  I wouldn't say it was all that fast - I actually had to pole on the way down the hill, but it's not really a bad track for today.

Trail Damage

Dave will be going out today to repair damage to the trails front 2 snowmobilers coming out from Kaslo , and to pack in the new snow.
While it was raining in Kaslo we were getting new snow in the Nordic area , It was reality quite nice skiing in the light snow..
 Have a great day
