Happy Valentine's Day. Here is some love, check out this picture! We haven't been updating daily because the trail is staying in great shape with the winter conditions…We groom as needed about every day; the tracks are firm and well set, the skate lanes are firm, flat, and soft enough for an edge. We have groomed this morning. Despite today's warm forecast skiing should remain firm and very nice. Thursday we will regroom as needed. ... See MoreSee Less

Only 6 more weeks would be great.

I don't want 10 or 12 more weeks of cold and snow.
