02/12/16 6:13AM 2 degrees above and rising. Zero just about 1/2 hour ago. Noon forecast of 17 degrees and cloudy with a daytime high of 20. Possible flurries during the day before lake effect sets up tonight with 3-7 inches predicted. Lake effect is such that we could get nothing or two foot. 14 inches of new snow in the last 36 hours. Back to mid season conditions. High school sectional relay race at 3:30PM. Relay race so short course or few of the trails on the south side being utilized.
Set tracks and skate lanes on entire system. 6-10 inch base base and 113 inches of snow for the season.
02/11/16 6:10AM 12 degrees and snowing. Noon forecast is 9 degrees and cloudy with a daytime high of 10. Ten inches of new snow. Fourteen inches new in the last 48 hours. I will be rolling the entire system and setting tracks. Good conditions for classic. Soft conditions for skating. Friday's high is predicted to be 21. We have a high school sectional race at 4PM on Friday. Saturday and Sunday will be the coldest temperatures of the season. With our trails being almost exclusively in the woods, the colder temperatures are less bothersome, but warm clothing is still recommended. 110 inches of snow for the season. 6-10 inches of packed snow on the trails.
02/10/16 6:19AM 25 degrees and light snow. Noon forecast of 29 and cloudy with a daytime high of 29. Snow predicted for this afternoon and snow each day in the forecast for the next 4. Three inches of new snow. Set track and skate lanes for the entire system on a 2-5 inch base. Section 3 high school race here at 4PM on Friday. 100 inches of snow for the season. 100 inches is nice, but it is still less than 50% of what is normal. We have been in full operation since January first. Very thankful for the snow that we have received. Very thankful for the skiers that frequent our facility.
NOTE: Due to daily grooming, the snow on our ski trails will usually be deeper than what is in the webcam view as this spot is in the open with no packing.
We have a new groomer. Same Alpina Sherpa as before but this is a 2013 with a 1.6L Ford engine rather than a 2009 with a 1.4L Peaugot engine. Basically the same machine but the dry weight is now 1300 pounds vs. 1180 pounds with the previous setup. 6 new models of skis including Fischer Carbonlite's and Fischer superlites. Another nice addition is the Rossignol Evo Tour. 3 new models of Sporten skis

Should be a good day for skiing. 3 inch base and 36 inches for the season.

APPOINTMENTS AT OFF HOURS ARE NOT A PROBLEM, BUT YOU WOULD NEED TO CALL FIRST TO MAKE SURE THAT I WILL BE AROUND.
We groom with an Alpina Sherpa. This is a 1.6L, 4 cylindar truck on a snowmobile frame. An Italian made machine designed for pulling and climbing in the Alps. This machine produces 75HP and 82 lb-ft.
One of the main advantages we have in Osceola Is a wealth of fresh soft snow. At 0.38 pounds per square inch ground pressure the Shepa allows us the abilty to groom - renovate - pack any amount of snow. This lets our skiing stay firm to the ski for skate skiing. Set track for classic and no rug burns for those inadvertant sudden stops (falls). More specs. and pictures on www.alpinasnowmobiles.com
I use a Yellowstone 84 inch Ginzu groomer. With 250 pounds of down pressure we have the ability to smooth out all snow regardless of the age. The Alpina is 1180 pounds dry weight, the Ginzu groomer is 330 pounds. To give you a feel for the size of this equipment, the work class snowmobile from Bombardier the Skandic super wide track is 650 pounds. Two passes on all the trails with a touch of overlap gives you trail widths of 12 to 14 foot with classic track and skate lanes. www.yellowstonetrack.com
