Grooming and conditions (January 8, 2017)

No new grooming today.  Skating lanes were groomed yesterday and new track set in many of the lower trails in the woods including Water's Edge.  The upper part of Ken's Drop and the Entrance Trail are still closed.  Open drainage on upper Ken's Drop.  Be very careful skiing down the S curves on Broadway.  We cannot do a good job grooming where we turn on to Water's Edge Trail.  The snow last night should make for some great skiing in the tracks.  Should be able to use hardwax or waxless again.


Grooming and conditions (January 7, 2017)

As it warms up today there should be some fantastic skiing.  Very fast skating and great classic if you are a klister skier or just want to double pole in the field.   Ken's Drop is still closed but most of the other trails are open.  Our plan today is to concentrate grooming the lower trails and try to get some track laid.  The groomers want to thank skiers for staying off trails when we closed due to warm weather.  Absolutely nobody skied which made it possible for us to get the trails reopened.  Chance of light snow this evening which could make for great skiing tomorrow.


ANSA news and update

Some announcements and information about the trails, planned events, and ANSA business. 

Auburn Middle School race

We will be hosting an Auburn Middle School race on our trails on Saturday, February 4th at 1:00.


Grooming and conditions (January 5,2017)

Extensive grooming today has yielded skating lanes and track set on Ricker's Field Loop, Pond Loop, and Perkins Ridge Trail. All other trails are closed and not groomed.  It is recommended that you ski down the Perkins Ridge Trail and up the steep hill to Ricker's Field as grooming has not been completed to the Faith and Mary's Trail. 


Grooming report: TRAILS CLOSED

Ski trails closed today, Wednesday, January 4, 2017.  


Please do not be tempted to ski.   The warming temperatures today will make the trails very soft.  Deep ruts are tough on us groomers.  We will resume grooming Thurs. AM. Snowshoe trails should be fine but please stay on designated snowshoe trails.  Trail side parking lot will be closed due to warm weather.


Full Moon Ski Series

Join us in the Ricker Field from 6:00 to 8:00 for a Full Moon Ski for any or all of the following:

Baxter Duathalon

The Lost Valley Baxter Duathalon on January 28th, 2017 at Lost Valley. 

Grooming and conditions (January 3, 2017)

Due to weather forecast no new grooming today.  Tracks are still in decent shape especially in Ricker's Field Loops.  Most of the skating lanes were groomed yesterday.  Because of the changes at Lost Valley it has become very difficult to groom the S curves on Broadway, the Entrance Trail and Water's Edge by the stream.  We are attempting to resolve this problem.  Most of the snowshoe trails have been packed out by hardy individuals.


Grooming and conditions (January 2, 2017)

Skating lane on most trails dragged this AM.  Could not reset track this morning due to equipment failure.  Track from two days ago is in decent shape.  The S curves on Broadway leading to the Entrance Trail were not groomed this morning.  Get out there today or tomorrow before rain on Tues. night and Wed. 


Trails will probably be closed on Wed due to the rain and warm up.  Skiing on the trails when they get soft makes it almost impossible for the groomers to remove the ruts.
