Potawatomi State Park, January 27, 2016

5 inches of new snowfall on Jan.25, 26. The trails were rolled, compacted, combed and tracked on Jan 27 after lower air temperatures permitted.The classic track is very good to excellent. The skate lane set up well on the blue loop and is firm with great glide. The skate lane on the red and black loops is a bit softer, but the new snow and grooming helped level out a lot of the previously bumpy uneven areas.

Skating rated very good to excellent; best areas are the return loops on the blue, black and red trails. Best ski I’ve had here this season. Great job, groomers Kim and Dennis.
