Though I did not ski today, I have been informed that the 180 groomer has definitly one track setter repaired and other may be repaired today.  We will still try to place one track per pass.  This will allow for a larger skate deck when we can perform 2 passes.  Again, call in the am for details.

Zach went up and skated today. He thought the skate deck was medium (not too firm, not too soft), and he said his skis were slow, but he probably had the wrong glide wax.

There are pretty much no classic tracks (the track setter is broken on the grooming machine) -- just a skate deck on the groomed areas... I have zero information about when either of the grooming machines' various problems will be fixed -- call the snow line before driving up!

It was a cold day for the Langlauf race today! The track setter is apparently broken on the one grooming machine that is mostly running, but Tim went out on the snowmobile in the morning and set some tracks along the race course. By the time the race was half-way over, though, blowing snow had drifted in, completely filling the tracks in many places. For skating today, the surface seemed fairly soft, due to all the new snow and blowing snow.

For tomorrow, hopefully the snow line will tell us whether the groomer runs or not tonight, and whether or not they were able to set tracks for classic skiing... we'll see. It will be cold!
