Meriden XC Grooming Report 2/10/2021

All the trails are groomed, we were able to groom yesterday afternoon. Racing today (2/10) from noon to 4 pm on the Smokehouse trails. Cross the bridge and there will be a lot fewer folks for those out tomorrow afternoon.

The first annual Women’s Skate Ski Clinic at The Plainfield Trails was a huge success!

We had a range of abilities from beginner to advanced intermediate skiers and all learned new skills that they could take with them as they continue to ski this winter. Our beginning/lower intermediate group worked on V1, no poles skiing, and uphill technique while our intermediate/upper intermediate group worked on V1, V2, V2A, and uphill technique. We were able to cover a lot in the two hours and the perfect grooming with light snowfall on top made for excellent teaching and learning conditions. A huge thank you as always to Bill Knight for the superior grooming! It was a treat to work with so many lovely ladies and we can’t wait to do it again!
