Apologies for the delayed grooming report today, but it took a while to tame the beast at the Spruces today. Arrived to 10+” of fresh Wasatch white gold this morning at 0600. Sled packed entire system, upper and lower loops, then proceeded to put down fresh corduroy on the entire course. Almost gave up trying to set classic today as the snow, even with multiple laps of sled packing remained very soft and the classic setter was behaving more like a submarine than a classic setter. Was finally able to set really nice classic track on the upper (eastern) loops. Did not set classic on the lower portion of the system (west of the main Spruces parking lot). The upper and lower loops are now connected, thereby eliminating the need to remove skis to ski between upper and lower loops. Conditions will be somewhat soft for the remainder of today as the track sets up with cold overnight temperatures, but it should be well worthwhile to get up the canyon for a late afternoon/early evening ski. Only saw one Nordic skier and a handful of snow shoe enthusiast during the entire shift. Get out of the valley and come up for some sliding on the Wasatch Front’s newest Nordic skiing addition. Skiing over the next several days should be spectacular. Cheers!
