What a confounding winter this has been. I just walked out to the Nordic Center during my lunch break and was pleased to find some skiable snow. Our groomer Jeremy was able to roll out the upper trails and it appears that most of the rocks are covered. If you are up for a rock ski session, it looks like Placid and Oslo are your best bets. Please ski in the correct direction to preserve the uphills from the snow plowers, and please be careful on the icy downhills.
Jeremy is hoping to groom Saturday night if it snows on the 16th. If so, the skiing should be better on Sunday. Below are some photos from the Placid trail, showing the best conditions and the worst I could find. Still did not see any visible rocks, just grass. Hopefully we can host our first headlamp hustle race soon!
