It also helped pack a steeper cutoff loop across the middle of the lollipop and a gradual mini loop near the bottom of the lollipop for those looking for a shorter segments to add or a way to subtract from the full 2 mile loop.
Temps were not as warm as in town but snow was softening by afternoon. It should firm up nicely tonight.

Seward Ski for Small Businesses
A virtual 12 stage challenge with one week to complete each stage. Each stage will be a relatively easy classic Nordic ski that would be appropriate for any skill level. The event is simple. First, register. The cost is free but there is a donation page. Second, ski the stage challenge. Third, let us know you completed the ski so we can enter you in the stage raffle. If you're the lucky winner, you'll be mailed a gift card that supports our local small businesses.

The Russian Campground loop was groomed with tracks set out to the Grayling parking lot at the end of the main road yesterday night (Thanks Elijah!) so there will be a couple inches of snow that fell today on top.
However, the Russian Campground entrance has not been plowed yet this season and should be considered impassable for any 2wd vehicles. It is challenging even in a 4wd vehicle so proceed "at your own risk" and make sure you have a shovel and somehow to extract yourself from soft snow before turning in.
