Trail Conditions Wed 10 Feb @ 8:28
Our daily goal is to deliver the most skiing possible, groomed to the highest standard we can. In general, trails are groomed by mid-morning, and unless otherwise noted, will be groomed for skating and have a track set for classic skiing.
The core trails are PistenBully groomed pretty much daily by no later than mid-morning. They are most likely to receive extra attention in terms of shoveling, snow-making, snow-farming and other efforts.

This group of trails receives the next most frequent attention from our grooming staff. Not quite daily, but pretty darn close most of the season. Outlying trails are more dependent on natural snow, though we frequently plow the surrounding fields to ensure good conditions on these trails. Hosmer Point trails benefit the most from a heavier snowpack, as many trails are on gravel paths, and are open to the wind and sun that can thin the cover. These popular trails are generally ready to go pretty early in the day, but not as early as the Core.

The lake trails are snow-machine groomed as conditions permit. Given the dynamic situation with the underlying ice, the lakes are some of the most volatile of our trails. Definitely check to confirm the state of the lakes before setting out.

|Grand Tour and Beyond|
We aim to groom most of these loops once, sometimes 2-3 times per week, depending on conditions and the amount of fresh snow. The PistenBully will generally make a run to Highland Lodge a time or two during the week. These loops are more likely snow machine groomed than trails closer in to the Center - but you'll be surprised what the grooming team can accomplish with the more traditional approach.

|Highland Lodge Trails|
With the exception of the Highland Lodge connector, for '15-16 the Highland Lodge Trail system will be classic groomed throughout. The more narrow, less developed trail system fits smaller snow machines and the style and speed of classic skiing better. Craftsbury groomers and volunteers from Greensboro will keep the Lodge trails in shape all winter. The plan is to groom in Greensboro a couple of times a week, depending on traffic at the facility, conditions and snowfall.
