On February 27th, International Polar Bear Day, some rather warm sticky snow at the Alturas Lake Ski Trails made old groomer Davinius wonder about warming trends. Soon, he might be out of a job, just like the polar bears. In the meantime there was plenty to do. He fixed the broken track setter and then spent some time shoveling the bridge crossing flat again since it had begun tilting at an alarming angle towards the sun. After that, he pulled the compaction drag round about, hither and thither, beating down soft snow at the soup kitchen party site and on all trails except for Sheep Thrills to flatten out dishing, humping and tilting. More grooming on Sunday should complete the job and result in happy trails for the time being.
