FROM Vasa Trail Ski Conditions --> Another “oh my gosh it’s fast” skating day.
Hard pack with about 1/2” of corduroy and just enough control.
Skated from Timber Ridge past the Rock and then back; threw in an out and back on Special K just because.
I went out at 7 am, so I don’t know how long the conditions will last given it’s going to warm up.... #vasa #crosscountry #snowphotos

FROM Vasa Trail Ski Conditions --> Jim and Mike did a late evening / early morning grooming hoping to catch the trail just as it started to freeze after two warm days. They were successful. The skate lane has been renovated and new classic tracks were cut in. Jim reported about 1/2 inch of crusty snow on the surface when they started which was mixed into the existing base.
Right now it is 15 degrees with clear skies and calm winds. Today should offer really good controlled skiing. Temps are forecast to warm into the mid 30s today with increasing cloud cover throughout the day.
Don't forget your sunscreen on the sunny ski days ahead 🙂. Peace, Glen 02/25/21...6:27 am ... #vasa #crosscountry #snowphotos

FROM Vasa Trail Ski Conditions --> It is 35 degrees with sleet falling here at the trail head. Very wet. I was hoping we could do a groom this morning but it will not happen. We will wait until temps drop to around freezing, which is forecast for late tonight into Thursday morning, before attempting a groom. Peace, Glen
02/24/21...4:47 am
Also, with the warm temps in the forecast it’s requested that all skiers, walkers, fat tire bikers be mindful of not making ruts in a soft trail. Please be considerate of this and avoid the trail if you see that you’re damaging it.... #vasa #crosscountry #snowphotosGood Morning Badgers,

FROM Vasa Trail Ski Conditions --> Abundant snow on the trail and many out enjoying it. Soft and slow as expected but this trail should be in good shape for a while now and it will begin to firm up with more skiers and grooming. These are the midseason conditions we look forward to. Hope u can get out and enjoy it. Ski on! 😉🤙🏽❄️... #vasa #crosscountry #snowphotos ... See MoreSee Less

FROM Vasa Trail Ski Conditions --> Wow! The grooming report is below. Mild temps and lots of new snow is great news, but the trail will likely be soft and slow earlier today until it gets rolled, groomed and packed down by skiers. Don’t let that stop u from getting out to a winter wonderland, just plan accordingly. Woohoo!
Good Morning Badgers,
Snow. Snow. Snow and more snow. Thats what we got this morning on the Vasa. It's still snowing and theres 10 plus inches on the ground. It is 22 degrees with calm winds. Mike and I are headed out to start the rolling
( compaction) process. Our goal is to have the 5k and 10k ready for skiing by mid morning then move into the 25k. This will be slow going. I will put out an update late morning or early afternoon. Peace, Glen... 02/20/21...3:42 am ... #vasa #crosscountry #snowphotos
