The groomers have been out packing the trails and getting ready for Christmas week! Groomer Chris reported from his run last night that ‘Trail 8 East was pretty good, east of Reed & Green bridge a few thin spots. All in all, trail groomed very nice.’ Norm was going out this afternoon to push some snow into water holes and ditches around town. As of now, it looks like groomers may be going out tonight and tomorrow night. Christmas day is play day so groomers can take a run if they want.
Keep in mind, it is early in the season so the trails are not ‘perfect’ yet. Trail Boss Norm has the yellow flag out. There are a couple water holes on Trail 443. There are small saplings sticking up and you’ll see some small branches and stuff in the trail along with some icy spots poking out I’d expect in the open areas where the wind is blowing the snow around. It is windy so we have been getting lake effect snow off and on all day today. The thermometer says its 24 degrees but factor in the wind chill and it is about 11 degrees.
