1.24.10 Heavy snow

Lots and lots of heavy, very wet snow over the last 24 hours.  Temperatures hovering in low 30’s. Luckily, we did not get much of the rain that predominated in other parts of the state, but the snow is wet enough that even the pressure of a footstep turns the snow into ice.    

We groomed a stretch of trail with the G2 as an experiment this afternoon; we’ll see what it’s like in the morning.  Best guess, however, is that if we groom before it gets colder, we will just end up with hard-packed ice trails.  Groomers on both sides of the Central Gunflint Trail System are waiting for more favorable grooming conditions.  We’ll be watching the thermometer closely.
