The 22-mile Blue Hills Trail system in Northwest Rusk County today's report (1/29):
Packed powder conditions, generally great skiing! Very good to excellent skating and striding throughout the trail system. 90% of the trails have been groomed since the generous Sunday morning powder snowfall on January 24th. Use your good skis, come and get it!
Grooming is occurring almost daily and includes wide packed and rolled trails for freestyle skiing and classic track is set as well.
Tonight's grooming plan: start on the East Side, groom the Hunter/Walker loop, then groom the crossover trail to the West Side, then groom the West Side loops, then return by grooming the East/West crossover trail back and return to the trailhead.
