Ground-Hog Day

Thanks to today's cloud cover, our snow held up better than expected, and we didn't have to close the trails at noon as planned. Although Sunday is supposed to be colder, if it is sunny the trails will deteriorate more quickly, so we again plan to close the trails at noon tomorrow (but it could be later).

90+% of the trails still have great coverage, but there are spots where we are either back to patches of grass, or some icy spots. We have groomed 'detours' around these spots wherever possible, and others can be avoided fairly easily (see photos taken this afternoon).

It won't be the pristine trail conditions you'd find at one of the nearby mountain ski resorts, but as one happy new Woodmoor Nordic skier stated today: 'at the few thin/icy spots, I just remind myself that I'm only 7 minutes from home and paid only $20 to ski!'

Monday and Tuesday are expected to be warm (50+ degrees), so I'm sure we'll be temporarily closed, waiting to see what we might get out of Wednesday's predicted storm. Think snow!

We rolled in the ~5-6" of snow we received overnight on all 5 trails, and had a 'soft' opening at noon today for the Green and Green-Blue Loops. (The other 3 loops still have too many thin, dangerous

The Country Club At Woodmoor did not get quite as much snow as I got at my house, but I am out rolling and assessing the trails as we speak. There will be a post later today if the trails will be open
