Don got down the beginning of the trails at the Northern Timber Cruisers clubhouse and turned around after a hundred yards or so. Too much ice and no sign of tracks after the rain.

The skiing at the Bait Hole is "fair." It's not so poor as to be unskiable, but there's hardly any set track left and everything is very icy.

Don & Co. will not be able to groom until there's about 6 inches of new snow, otherwise, the sleds that pull the groomers won't have any traction.
