According to a post on the Mountain Trails Foundation Facebook page on Wednesday, "We’ve packed/groomed the two missing legs on the south end of Oz. It’s a little rough and uneven, but it’s there. Also packed and ran the groomer over Upper RV Express & Two Pines for a little up and down. Again, it’s a little on the thin side. Think snow!"
