January 24:  A coating of fresh snow yesterday afternoon, on top of packed powder from the storm a week ago, gives us nice trail conditions today.  Fresh grooming will be limited – the coating of fresh snow over existing well set classic tracks and smooth skate lanes is hard to improve.   Our complete trail system is open today.   The skiing loop on Frozen Woods Lake is groomed but not tracked (lake ice is never 100% safe).  Snowshoe trails open with fantastic winter scenery.  Junior tubing hill open.  Come enjoy winter!
