GROOMING REPORTS


Trail Creek Grooming Report
Last updated: 12/25 @ 9am

Merry Christmas!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and what better thing to do on such a day than grab your family and head on out to Trail Creek for a great Nordic ski!  Christmas blessings from the JHSC Nordic gang, may the spirit of Christmas be with us all throughout the new year.

Due to some Santa duties, today’s grooming was earlier than usual but everything is set and ready to go.  The Pisten Bully made the initial pass with fresh classic tracks on all trails followed by a Ginzu skate pass to make plenty of room for skaters.  Overnight a strong inch of snow fell; as of 8:30 AM the temperature was -7ºC/19ºF with calm and cloudy conditions.  Skate lanes might be a smidge soft but all in all you will find some great skiing today!

Groomer’s choice for today is a ski with the family.
