On Thursday, the 25th of February, all skating lanes to the east of Alturas Lake Creek, except for Sheep Thrills, were flattened and groomed. Fittingly enough, on George Harrison’ s birthday, sunshine ruled the day. “It been a long cold lonely winter. Here comes the sun, and I say it’s all right.” On Friday, further grooming is planned. We have also heard good news from the Yankeeforker grooming ski trails at Park Creek. He had gone radio silent for almost a week after losing his phone in a snow bank in the middle of nowhere. Concerned about trail conditions? Don’t be. Take the good advice of Indian spiritual master, Meher Baba, also born on this day… “Don’t Worry, Be Happy!” Grooming took place on Wednesday and was scheduled again for Thursday to lay down skate and classic tracks on all trails at Park Creek for the weekend.
