On Wednesday, the 21st of January, South Loop and Sheep thrills were touched up for skating.  After that and after dealing with a mechanical breakdown of the Ginzu groomer’s tracksetter, Davinius and Timmy drove two snowmobiles to the far end of Sheep Thrills Trail to rough in the final loop, which had been blocked all season by 7 fallen trees. When they got there, they were amazed to find that lightly falling snowflakes had gradually accumulated and completely covered the fallen logs. They were able to ride easily across them. This reminded them of the great Buddhist debate of 1325 that had occurred on that very date. The winning debater, Buddhist monk Daito, described zen saying, “An octagonal millstone flies through the air.” It is with such “mind blowing” intent that the good groomer creates ski trails by “flying through the snow.”
