January 28th Grooming Report --Off to the Races!

January 28th Grooming Report

Off to the Races!

Vehicles full of skiers and coaches are on their way to West Yellowstone to compete in the second Intermountain Division Junior Nordic Qualifier of the year.  It looks to be a crisp and sunny weekend of great racing, all the information and results will be posted on the event website.

Some unusual critters have been showing up in the past few days, Coach Libby’s Teewinots spotted an eagle sitting on a tree top recently, and just this morning a big mound of dirt appeared next to a trail in the east fields.  This most probably means that once again we have a badger working the area, check it out on your next ski.

Today’s grooming made its subzero start with the Husky and ended up covering most trails.  Single passes with classic touch up here and there was pretty much the rule.  After a busy hour or so mid-day for Wilson Winter Sports, the schedule will be quite light for the rest of the day as only a few Junior skiers not going to the races will be practicing.  Skiing continues to be a bit chilly but calm, sunny, and very nice.

Groomer’s choice for today is the sunny East Fields.
