On Christmas day, the Alturas Lake Ski Area was in great shape and reverberating with holiday spirit. Davinius, the old groomer, was devoting his day to ceremoniously feeding bird and squirrel friends, while his Julegoat buddy, Krampus, was rounding up naughty children for shipment to interment camps in Spain. All trails were groomed for skating on the 24th, and classic tracks were set on Over the Hill, South Loop and the Trail to the Lake. Adam reported that after the last storm, he had caught up with Park Creek grooming on the 23rd and that he was planning on adding finishing touches on the 24th. Merry Christmas!
