On Friday, March 10th, Tibetan Uprising Day, after reflecting on the Tibetan proverb, “The wise pursue understanding, fools follow the reports of others”, Davinius has suspended grooming at Alturas and will be flagging bunny races on the untracked slopes of North Cabin Creek. On Tuesday and Thursday, all trails to the east of Alturas Lake Creek were rolled. Thursday afternoon the roller was abandoned half way to the lake in a mush of heavy snow. At Park Creek, trails were rolled on Monday and Wednesday. Climbing temperatures at both areas have made grooming difficult and packed trails are warm and wet. Further grooming attempts at each area are scheduled for Saturday morning.
