March 8th Grooming Report

A Very Fast Skier!

Pictured in the podium shot above is our very own Lena Poduska (second from the left) who was the 6th fastest U16 female in the nation yesterday at the Loppet Foundation Junior National Championships.  Way to go Lena!  Our other racers weren’t slacking either; you can follow the link above and find all the results.  Many thanks to Coach Luna for coaching and sending in some great images of the racing action.  In the image below clockwise from the upper right are Elizabeth Hall, Lucas Wilmot, Kate Brigham, and Natalie O’Brien.

Today is a practice day at nationals, the schedule is as follows:

There is great news closer to home as well, after dipping to 70% of normal snowpack at our local reporting station Phillips Bench yesterday; it has been dumping today at Trail Creek.  As of report time about 5 inches has fallen with more on the way.  While conditions might be just a tad slow with all the fresh snow, winter has gotten a complete restart and our trails are once again clean and pristine.

The Husky was hard at it today, covering nearly every trail.  The sections that received only one pass got a fresh classic track on that pass and Moose Loop, the fields, and the Nordic X course received multiple passes.  As mentioned above it is just a smidge soft but still wonderful if you have a chance to get out and enjoy the splendor.

Groomer’s choice for today is Olympic.
