  Conditions: Soft. Grooming now.
Just went for a lunch ski. Skate deck is soft, but no bare areas. Classic track looked to be in "ok" condition.
As I was finishing my workout, the groomer just started out. If it sets overnight, it should be good skiing on Saturday!

  Conditions: Pristine unbroken snow if you want, some classic trails made.
No grooming. Lots of unbroken snow. But there are classic tracks laid down along a lot of the usual paths. If you stick to the tracks already broken you should be able to avoid the sand and ice traps. Snow is very deep so I'd recommend extra socks. But not at all fast. No crust on the snow so breaking fresh trail was easy where it was needed. Snow is very fluffy and has very good coverage except in a few spots that blew down to mostly the ice under.

  Somewhere between extremely fast and the fastest snow I've ever skied on. Surprisingly, I could still get a little bit of edge when skating. If you make it out later today it may have loosened up and edging could be even better. I used good skis. Some grass on trail but very avoidable. Classic tracks were there but skied like a luge track. Get out and enjoy it! If you wait for absolutely perfect conditions in the metro you'll ski 2 days every three years.

  Conditions: Groomed this afternoon- excellent condition!
A nice wide skate lane and decent classic tracks set in the fresh snow. Nearly 100% coverage on skate trail, some grass poking through in classic tracks but minimal. Good depth. Slow snow and a bit soft since it hadn't had a chance to set up. Thanks groomers!

  Conditions: Classical track very good considering snow depth. A few grass spots showing, but they can be skied over without a problem.
Around noon today at 28F temperature, my Power Grip 4 kick wax was perfect today. The track was fast and fun!
