A cold dry night gave the groomers perfect conditions to work yesterday’s new snow. You will find the newest grooming in the Upper and Central Village Trails plus up onto the South Hall Trail and out the Ellis River to it’s northern end loop. Packed Powder all the way with tracks and classic in almost every place. Today at 1 pm we will have the dog skijoring on the Covered Bridge Trail (near the town fire pond). Park on Main St, BYOD (bring your own dog) or just come and get more information on this interesting way to ski and enjoy watching Jack Steffen work with his dogs! 39 K groomed last night; 85 open.

New snow sometimes means new wax is in order; wax does matter if you want to move more quickly and smoothly. JacksonXC offers ski waxing and other XC tuning and repair services. Stop in at the Rental Shop, with your gear, to discuss options for making your skis and poles work better for you.
