Meriden XC Grooming Report – 2/7/2022 & Skate Ski Clinic Information

Greetings everyone!

Grooming Report: Yesterday Bill reported that the upper trails were groomed, and that the cold temperatures have allowed the surface to set up nicely. "Good conditions for both classic and skate." (Although, note, no classic track has been set.)

I skied every trail this morning (lucky me!) and can enthusiastically confirm that this report is still accurate – although I might wax a tad more enthusiastically than Bill and say that the conditions were GREAT! Plenty of snow everywhere, the snow has set up nicely, there is no hemlock or other debris on the trails and every single kilometer is groomed and waiting for you. The skiing on the upper trails is particularly good as fewer folks have gone up there.

Skate Ski Clinic (from Virginia Beggs – thank you, Virginia!):
