3.9.2012 More fresh snow, new grooming

It snowed again last night, giving us a brilliantly white new coating of snow over the older base. A few warmer days last week had resulted in a  stiff top layer of snow.  Last night’s new snow gave the groomers fresh powder to work with today.

The challenge will be to get through the warm temps forecast for the next few days with our snow base intact.  We have a lot of snow; it won’t disappear just because a few days could be above freezing.  But we’ll all be very happy if the high temperatures turn out to be a bit cooler than predicted. Like everyone, we look forward to spring — just not quite yet.

About Bearskin

Once upon a time Sue McCloughan was a K-6 media/technology specialist, worrying about bar codes, book budgets and barfing 1st graders. On July 20th, 2007, Sue, Bob, Kaitlin and Quinn McCloughan bought Bearskin Lodge on the Gunflint Trail near Grand Marais, MN -- and all Sue's worries changed. If she seems somewhat incoherent while writing this blog, it's because her already overly taxed mind has been preccupied learning about potato salad, pea gravel, turbidity, crawl spaces, off-peak heaters, lake structure and antiquated front desk cash registers.
