Mountain Dell

Groomed all loops except World Cup for skate Monday evening. Existing classic is in good shape and was left alone. Primary focus was on leveling out areas that have seen snow blowing efforts from previous storm cycle to shore up base. Think of these snow blowing efforts as putting money in the bank if you will despite the challenging skiing they can provide for a few days until things can get leveled out. New snow expected Tuesday/Wednesday, but weather guessers seem to be hedging on when, how much and what form (rain/snow)? Unfortunately, the track will be rutted today as lone skier showed up at 21:30 just as we were finishing shift and stowing machines, thinking that the soft corduroy would provide for some great skiing. Pro tip: it does not. Skis much better after it has had a chance to set up and firm up overnight. Happy New Year!
