Trail Update: Feb. 8, 2010

Trail out of the Mendenhall checkpoint
One of the many short but slightly steep hills along the way
Once again the groomer gets stuck going uphill! We rely on brute strength (or sheer stupidity!) to drag it up.
willowy sections

Overflow/slush. I recommend skijorers stick to the ICE in the middle, not the snow off to the side if it's a warm day
The overflow occurs from the culverts near the willow sections. Note: GOOD ice on left...
Pooh Bear and Esther work as trail guinea pigs and give the trail a raving review! They are better at willow-dodging than humans. Skijorers should exercise caution in these short areas, we will clear up any really bad spots before the race
