On Monday, the  ski trail to Alturas Lake as far as the bridge junction and Over the Hill were flattened with multiple passes of the compaction drag and then groomed for skate and classic. Gliding along the fantastic freshly groomed trail, a passing skier quoted Raymond Carver, “there isn’t enough of anything as long as we live. But at intervals a sweetness appears and, given a chance prevails.”  More flattening of slightly dishy trails is scheduled for Tuesday.
