Out skiing today, Dec. 15, on the Syncline XC trails: lots of fun, snow is anywhere from 6 - 10 inches deep, dense with some fresh snow on top. 
We had to break trail around the lake, though somebody had been by a few snows earlier. Skiing over lots of moose tracks, some rose crested finches flitting around, deer, but no others skiing.
Parking lot has been cleared.
We're hoping to get some posters out and new brochures circulated early in the new year, looking for suggestions where to place them.

Trails report

SCaT volunteers have been out on the trails four times this fall, clearing brush and deadfall from the trail system, and improving signage to some extent.

So the trails are pretty much a go - now for some cross-country skiiing.
Just add snow.

We've always had trouble packing new snow on the system - too few volunteers, too much work. This year may not prove any different. Because of low volunteer resources and tight finances, we've decided not to put our snow machines into service. We are trying to find others that would be willing to do so on a regular basis, but haven't landed anybody yet.

So, it may be a skiier packed process this season.

Tell us how your ski season is going this year, by submitting your comments to this blog.

Hope the week goes well. Maybe we'll see you this weekend.
