Last nite, while grooming for today's Loppet race, we had to shovel a lot of snow to cover bare spots. The warm weather and lack of snow has had quite a negative effect on our base. We generally don't move snow like this until at least March. Summit has multiple open areas and did not receive any snow moving. Lower UW, Ridge, Blackjack, Alder and Rollercoaster are the trails that required the most shoveling. The bad news is that there is hardly enough snow left on the sides of trails to shovel.
We are in desperate need of some effective snow dancing!
