March 5th Grooming Report
Cryoloops, The Extension, Erick’s Extension, Willy’s Wander, Dark Hallow, Chill Hallow, Devo’s Delight, Lolli’s Lost Land, & Twilight for Teewinots!
These are just a few of the names being floated around the Nordic division of JHSC for the name of the new extension at the bottom of Faceplant. Themes of dark and chilly have been popular as the cold air does tend to pool and the far end is full of thick trees. All the names have a certain appeal; time is on our side, we can let these percolate and hopefully the best will rise to the top.
Speaking of rising to the top, if all has gone according to plan, our JHSC national qualifying racers are in the Midwest today, preparing for a great week of racing at the national junior Nordic championships. The event officially kicks off tomorrow with racing beginning on Monday. The Loppet Foundation Junior National Championships website indicates that not only results, but live streaming will be available on Monday. Check it out and go JHSC skiers!
Today at Trail Creek about a half inch has fallen in the past 24 with dark skies, calm winds, temps right around freezing, and a few snowflakes falling. The Husky was hard at it today, covering nearly every trail. Most woods trails received a single skate/classic pass with Animal Farm and the field trails receiving multiple passes with fresh classic tracks. If you are lucky enough to make it out for a ski today, expect nice spring conditions.
Groomer’s choice for today is Cryoloops, The Extension, Erick’s Extension, Willy’s Wander, Dark Hallow, Chill Hallow, Devo’s Delight, Lolli’s Lost Land, & Twilight for Teewinots or whatever you want to call it.
