How's the grooming holding up? I'm really looking forward to checking it out.

It would be such a fun place for a ski-O! (But only for intermediate to advanced skiers.) Dave groomed yesterday and the trails had been well-used by the time we got there today. Conditions were still very good but only the central trails still felt freshly groomed. He often mentions the current grooming status on the Hockleycrest blog.

This is an awesome quote from his blog, sounds like something Hans would say:
"I will not be grooming today; I really can't make it any better than it is right now."

:) That *does* sound like Hans.

Dave is a dedicated volunteer and active skier who owns some of the land we ski on. It's a lot of work for a retiree but he isn't showing any signs of slowing down. He was given the Lieutenant Governor's Ontario Heritage Award for Lifetime Achievement for all his work on the Bruce Trail.

Bash, did you see that there is a Hockleycrest Loppet badge available this year? It sounds like a fun challenge. I am going to try a time to get it done this winter.

Oh, fun! We skied past those 3 locations yesterday but of course we didn’t take the required selfies. Tracy told me you were the one who told her about Hockleycrest. She is fearless for a new backcountry skier!

so who is this Hans you refer to...:-). I need to check this place out. The grooming equipment I have is snowshoes, Adria, Lia and Isak.

:) This other Hans-type guy has a snowmobile and homemade groomer. I'm sure you'd get along. Map and trail conditions are on the blog.
