On January 25th, the 511th birthday of Johannes Oporinus, the Swiss humanist illustrator and one of the most important printers of the 16th century, our skeletal grooming crew headed out to roll through 6 inches of new snow at the Park Creek and Alturas Lake ski areas. However, the resulting beautifully groomed trails were quickly covered by another dump of snow overnight and into Friday morning. Can we complain? More grooming scheduled for Friday when the snow lets up. Shake thyself from the dust, arise and ski!

ADDENDUM:All ski trails at Park Creek and Alturas lake were groomed through 5 to 11 inches of new snow on Friday, the 26th.  More snow and grooming predicted for the 27th.
