Fri/Sat Jan 27/28

A busy week with storm after storm. The Fairgrounds skate lanes were groomed on Friday by Groomer/Coach Rob R while Groomer Sasquatch was out of town. It was a big grooming effort to scratch into the hard frozen substance and make it skiable. But the effort resulted in a good skiing surface. We'll regroom Sat AM and set fresh classic tracks. We'll likely close the Fairgrounds Sunday at noon as temps will again climb above 40 with rain in the PM. We prefer not to have skiers out on such soft snow as it leaves big grooves that are hard to smooth out. The Hopkinton Hawks will hosting a Nordic Race at the Fairgrounds on Tuesday so Monday there will be a great deal of extra grooming going on to prepare for that. Synopsis: your best bet is to ski Saturday or Sunday before 12. Thanks.
