Freeze/thaw cycles will create a hard frozen trail to start the day. Time your skiing to take advantage of rising temps, solar radiation, and a softening trail surface.
It was 37 degrees F at noon today (Thursday), there had been a hard overnight freeze, and the skate lane didn't start to soften until 10-10:30. The glaze in the classic track became more skier friendly very late in the morning. The trails are withstanding this early March warmup.
Bring your good skis, the base is adequate.

Our snowshoe trails are an option for hikers - PLEASE DON'T WALK/HIKE ON THE SKI TRAILS!
February 28, 2021: 6+ inches heavy sticky snow

Update signing privileges for our checking account (Superior Choice Credit Union in Bruce, WI) and our online savings account (First Internet Bank)
Due to the election of new officers in May 2019, we need to update the signing privileges on our bank accounts. Currently Ron Jasperson and Tom Paulsen have signing privileges.
Since Tom Paulsen (secretary / treasurer) handles the banking, his signing privileges will continue as long as he's an officer of the organization. A second individual (officer) needs signing privileges in the event Tom is unavailable.
In May 2019 Ron Jasperson was replaced as president by Sam Behrends. Tom Paulsen will contact Superior Choice Credit Union (checking account) and First Internet Bank (online savings account) with instructions to remove Ron Jasperson's signing privileges, and add signing privileges for Sam Behrends.
Motion to adjourn by Tom Paulsen, second by Sam Behrends. Adjourned at 7:10 p.m.
Taken by Tom Paulsen, Secretary
