Grooming Factoid: Currently we have received 78 inches of snow for the season, we should be around the 150 inch range. If the trails become saturated this weekend as expected, they will retain “heat” in the snowpack regardless of any new snow on top and they will begin to melt rapidly from within. We will not groom slush. Grooming slush creates ice when it re-freezes, not just a surface layer that we can break up, but true ice that’s best suited for hockey and fishing through. Our grooming window in the spring is limited to when the snow is frozen to a sufficient depth that we are not grooming slush and only breaking up or processing frozen icy snow, as to not make bulletproof ice. With this reduced time window and ground speed of the grooming machine when dealing with ice, trails groomed may be limited.
