  I had a great ski this morning. Only saw one other skier at 8:30 AM. Hoping for more snow and a long season.

  5.3k trail at Phalen is in good shape. Skate deck is firm but not hard, so either soft or hard-track skis work fine. There were only 5 or 6 sets of skating tracks visible so the corduroy was great. Classic tracks were so-so; kind of thin and washed out in the corners, and littered with oak leaves in a few places. But overall both the skating and striding were pretty good. Note that if you park near the beach, as I usually do, you will have to hike a few yards in the snow since the new trail route turns away from the road across from the west end of that parking lot.

  The skate deck has firmed up and is mostly excellent and wide - great for cruising - one soft area at the far north end where the trail was widened recently, one bare / icy spot that is easy to see and avoid, and a few spots that show a little grass poking through (very minor). Classic tracks looked universally excellent.

  Soft new snow over a relatively soft base - very pretty. Course is a lot shorter than last year - 5.4k, down from 7.5. Classic tracks looked pretty good but also soft. Flows nice, but it is down to one significant climb.

  Nice surprise today at Phalen. Skied this afternoon on a nicely rolled trail. The layout is different but a fun ski. Plenty of snow!
