Pincushion Trails Grooming Report
Monday, November 28

As of 11 AM, Monday, 11/28, skating track was refurbished with two passes, 12 feet wide, on Stadium, East Overlook, West Overlook, Lower and Upper Snowman. Conditions for skating on these loops are good, but some rocks are visible, so ski with care. 

One pass, 7 feet wide, was made on the skating lane of Pincushion Loop. Conditions on lower Pincushion are fair to poor. Rock skis are advised and use caution. 

Classic tracks are well formed, but icy and many exposed rocks and dirt patches. 

Current Trail Conditions/Notes:  
Packed Trail Base: Average 1-3" 
Snowfall last 24 Hours: 0"
Snowfall last 7 Days: 1-2"
Average Depth off the Trail: 6”

NSSRC is pleased to receive a grant from the North Star Ski Touring Club to further develop our youth programs and special events. Grant funds were used to purchase dryland training equipment for the Superior Edge, a new program for the High School Nordic Team to keep the students active and outdoors through the summer. In addition, grant funds were used to purchase more ski equipment so as the Nordic Team grows, ski equipment is available for those who need it. Grant funds are also being used to purchase course markers and other items needed for hosting special events.
