  One last spring skiing hurrah. My wife and I classic skied this morning before temperature had moved above freezing. Our tracks from the day before were still there. Fast glide, nice kick. Had to pick our way around bare spots and there were was some debris, but still able to get in a decent ski. I returned around 11:00 a.m. and skated. Had to freestyle and ski a random course throughout the 9-hole but still able to move fast. Snow had started to soften but that is to be expected from an April 14th ski. All in all, a great last ski of the season!

[ Good skis ]
  Spring skiing conditions. Nice kick and glide and plenty of snow in most spots. Yes, there is grass and some fallen debris but it is easy to find your way around this. It was lovely weather, sunny and warm. It was fun seeing the green grass in areas juxtaposed against the snow drifts and trail. Enjoy it!

  Surprisingly fun! A nice set of tracks is established at Highland and got decent kick/glide with skins. Snow softly falling with very little wind was beautiful. Lots of twigs on the ground from yesterday and grass showing in spots but I wasn't concerned about damaging my decent skis.

  There was a good, skied in track at Highland today that looped the area. There is plenty of snow, but the wind has blown some areas bare to the grass. Paste wax on fishscales worked great.

  Scraped off the storage wax and took the skis out for one last hurrah. A 1" layer of loose crust had developed on top of a 1-2" snow/slush base. Called it after 15 minutes - kept busting through the crust and getting pelted in the face with hail being whipped around by 40 mph gusts.
