Last night’s grooming has been covered with a few more centimeters of fresh snow.
World Cup 10K, Pierre Harvey, 7.5K and Monique Waterreus were groomed overnight and are very good to excellent for classic. Skating will be slow with the fine-grained snow and cooler weather.
Upper and Lower Valley were groomed last night but now have two to four centimetres of fresh snow.
Dog, Copper and Selwyn’s Loop were groomed Sunday morning.
Grooming crews will be out on Monday evening and Tuesday morning.
