Ski trails - Pretty good to bad and ugly
On Friday, the 17th of February, at Alturas Lake, the Trail to the Lake as far as the bridge junction, Over the Hill, and South Loop were groomed for skate and classic and looked quite nice. A single pass of the ginzu groomer on Sheep Thrills laid down an acceptable skate lane as warm snow began to build up on the ginzu knives. Switching to the roller, snow continued to stick and a double roll on the Connector and Wapiti resulted in a compacted trail that was a lumpy, bumpy wet mess. With warm snow falling on Saturday morning grooming at Alturas is on hold until temperatures fall a bit.
