How is Gunstock Nordic? They report very few groomed trails. Isn't there enough snow to do more grooming?

Natural snow cover is very thin, and their grooming team is...substandard.
They're making a lot of snow and trying to get it out onto the trails, but then grooming it with a large snowcat with deep treads, which pulls up gravel from the ground and evenly distributes it through out the nice snow...
For some high school and middle school races this week, a few of us went out with shovels and rakes to rake out the ridges left by the groomer. then pick out the larger rocks and lay a cover of clean snow on top to make it skiable for novice racers.
