New snow yesterday was great! Very nice conditions this morning. We groomed all the loops. Unfortunately, one thin spot on the Lower Loop, north side, under the tree by the creek. We are down to the road there. Might be time to shovel a little snow. How about a little scavenger hunt – there used to be a ski jump at Spruces, where they would hold jumping competitions in the 1930s. The CCC built it under the direction of ski jump champion Alf Engen, who was also a CCC foreman. Can you find where it used to be?
