12 loads of snow moved under overpasses today. New snow really improved the trail surface. Dan and John checked the Muldoon Swamp and its much better with the new snow. The short section before going up the mountain that had overflow is covered with snow but hooking there with ice underneath may be difficult. We will have a snow machine there during the race. They will put snow in the rough area right off the Beaver Dam Bridge and snow machine pack all trails tomorrow. Friday a complete trail groom for the race.
