Mark of the park report for 4/19/17 Well it's another year ending for skiing in the park. Had to close the gate today. The park is in the mud stage. Please stay off the trails for a while. See you next year.:-) ... See MoreSee Less
It ain't over yet!! I skate skied 6 miles this morning on Long and Spruce Lakes. Very good conditions. Will probably be good tomorrow and maybe Friday. I tried to post a video of it but can't get it to load. ... See MoreSee Less
Mark of the park report for 4/7/17 Looks like it will freeze tonight. (Friday) Lakes and ski trails will be good in the mornings. Saw a couple on X lake this morning. They loved it. moved to the ski trails after. Jim G. pulled the markers for the Erradic loop. Not recommended to ski that trail. Lakes are getting soft in the afternoons also. Snow gets soft around 11:00 am. so, Enjoy one of the last weekends to ski. ... See MoreSee Less
I rode X-Y Lakes this morning and it was stellar. Some sun cups to deal with, but we got a good freeze last night. The red multi-use trail was too rutted up to be enjoyable. Thanks for all of the grooming this season! Enjoy the sun! ... See MoreSee Less
Arthur Mannix,Karl Swanson, Jack West and I managed to clean out, deconstruct, and haul to the Top Notch log yard Mike & Suzanne Fisher's cabin. The club decided it would be put to best use on the Powers Rd. property and this is phase 1. Thanks go to Karl for getting permission from his neighbors to take the sane way in, putting his machines and equipment at our disposal, and for being tall enough to grab those top few rounds. Thanks Jack for hauling machines and logs around. Thanks Arthur taking the time off your projects to do the hard, dirty work of grunting logs. And thanks to all three of you for keeping the heavy work light. ... See MoreSee Less
Whigmi to Fish Lake Park and points in between have been groomed for skate skiing, biking and other adventures. The hills could be icy, so please be careful. This is quite possibly the last grooming this season! For bikers, walkers and people with dogs I would suggest you consider going in the mornings so the trail will hold up longer. Thanks and have a good summer! ... See MoreSee Less
Thanks, Jim, and Happy Birthday! Hope you get to enjoy these trails on your birthday.
Happy birthday Jim. Hope you felt better than your little birthday buddy, Kylie, who had an upset stomach and didn't feel like going out for her birthday pizza! Thanks for all your hard work grooming all winter.
Did what is likely to be my last trip past dipper for a few months this morning and spent the hour having very fond thoughts for all the great groomers who kept the trails in great shape! Thank you all!
Now let's get this snow outa here and get us some dry trails so I can start trail running! I'm also dying for a nice lake swim!
Mark of the park report for 3/31/17 One of the last post for the year. groomed X lake and set double track there. Not much use on the ski trails so we did't groom them. Ran the Erratic trail with snow machine. Would be a great snowshoe walk.Everything is holding up well for now. But, will see. As Jim says, Best skiing in the am. Have a great weekend. ...

Randomly writing in hopes will see...a young woman from the Czech Republic is going thru the museum and is looking for skis to rent so she can go out on the trails today or early Sunday. Phone # of anyone willing to rent to her...boot size 39/40 and about 5'4"... (hey, you never know until you ask...I have nothing that size)
