January 20 Grooming Report

Well, as our local weather guru, Joe Ramey, predicted, we are getting bombarded with snow.  We are trying at this point, just to stay on top of packing down the snow, so it doesn't get insurmountable.  As one skier e-mailed me -- he was following Jon today, and it was great for about 20 minutes, and then the snow completely covered the tracks.  Al reported 15 inches of new snow at Ward today, and Jon reported moderate to heavy snowfall as well.  Al packed and rolled Ward, and Jon packed out Sunset/Winslow, Lion's, Vista (ridge only), Kannah Crossing, Loop 3 (through trees), Dog Trail (& shortcut), Dog Loop and Scales.  Of course, on Scales and Lion's, it was drifting fast, so pending weather (and possible road closures) for tomorrow, he will try to keep packing it out in the morning.  There will be no grooming on Friday at all due to blizzard conditions predicted, and both Al and Jon will be working Saturday morning 9- 10 a.m. on packing the trails again.  We're crossing our fingers that our stormy weather abates for the following weekend, and we will have primo race conditions....
