Grooming report March 10
On Sunday following Saturday’s large snowfall, grooming volunteers Jim Wallace and Luke Olen groomed all of the Vasaloppet Nordic Ski Center trails except for the two western Oaks sections. They used two Pisten Bulley groomers to groom a skate lane everywhere, double sets of classic tracks on most of the trail and at least one set of classic tracks everywhere.
