Nordic Trails Conditions Update for November 24,2021
The good news; the forecast of 1 inch of snow turned into 6 inches plus. Made a packing pass around Strube and portions on the Maze. Strube is pretty good other than the trail junctions at either end. The Maze is very dirty and full of rocks and debris with exposed vegetation. The Lights are NOT ON, it is doubtful the Lighted Loop will be skiable by Friday afternoon due to melt out from mixed in dirt, so the lights will remain off until snow conditions improve. But we have a start to our base!!!
The BAD news; all other trails are closed. 6 inches is nowhere near enough snow to start packing the other trails. Strube takes about 2ft, the Maze around 3ft, all other trails are 4ft plus to get open and maintainable. We will only pack/groom fresh snowfall until snow depths increase to levels that allow maintenance grooming.
