New Trails

Great improvements - the Rikert crew has added a couple of trails for the 2014/15 season.  It will add some fabulous new terrain, along babbling brooks, fields and woods, while improving the accessibility to the outer trails during races. Cannot wait to play on them!

Gilmore to First Loop!

Creating some ways around the race course will open up lots of skiable terrain even during big events.

Spring Skiing is here!

Nothing to complain about!
Awesome corn snow.  Full coverage.  High traffic trails provide a good poling platform.  Less traveled routes are a touch "punky".  Skating is excellent AND tracks are still in good shape for kick and gliders.
Get it while it lasts!!

Yipeee we got lots of snow.....thanks to Vulcan

The official ski report from Tom is that it is "Great!"

We worked all through the night to keep ahead of Vulcan - the snow storm, and packed, rolled and groomed everything possible.  A snow depth probe revealed at least three feet of snow out by Brown Gate!
The woods are quiet and protected from the winds and just feel like a winter wonder land.
This morning Jane and I skied out over Holland - Frost - Brown Gate - Upper Gilmore - Gilmore and back to the shop.  Alex headed out on snowshoes to find in his words: "great quality powder snow" - It truly is the best snow of the year!  You really don't want to miss out on this one!

Now back to the shop for a hot bowl of soup and some other yummy chow.
