Yes there will be a snowshoe race there tomorrow. Just got back from helping Dave mark the course and conditions are pretty good. Not sure of the actual distance but somewhere's around 5m. Only 100' of bare ground. There is ICE for sure but most of it has packed snow on top. It is not the same course as Northfield 1 from last year.
As soon I get them uploaded, I'll post a photo link of the trails.
Don't be discouraged by what's not out your door or the field driving into the visitors center.
