While the Lace Lake, Tall Pines, Knopp and eastend of the Banadad were previously tracked, the entire 31 kilometers of the Banadad was tracked yesterday. The groomer meet quite a few skier out on the trail. The trail is in pretty good shape for this time of year. There still is some center stubble showing through the snow, particularly on the trail's western end.
The first Banadad through skier, for this year's season, also occurred yesterday when a skier from Duluth completed the entire Banadad in just over three hours. Not a bad time.

Great skiing; the fresh snow really help cover much of the center stubble that was showing through.

On the westend there is about 1-2" of snow. Not near enough snow to get onto that end of trail with equipment. However, on the east end the snow measures 3-4 inches. Four inches is almost enough, but not quite enough, to get out onto the trail and start packing. While the snowmobiles are out packing the packing crew will work on clearing the down trees remaining on the remote section of the east end just beyond the Logging camp.
