  Had a fun fast ski at Hiram this afternoon. The track setup hard and fast over night after grooming Wednesday. Most areas the track is fairly well formed but it is shallow in some areas where there was not enough loose snow for the track setter to work with. There are many oak leaves mixed into the snow in some places but they were not causing any problem today. Get out and enjoy some skiing while the conditions are good.

  Re-groomed Hiram today since the old track was pretty chewed up on the hills and there were many oak leaves in some places. Since we have not had any new snow for awhile I had to breakup the old hard pack enough to reset the track and try to cover up some of the leaves. In most places the track is set to the full depth of the track setter and fairly well formed. In some places there are many Oak leaves mixed into the snow but it will take more snow to get them all covered up. With the cold temps the track and pole deck should set up firm overnight. There are a few scattered small twigs and of coarse the oak leaves in the track so it's your call if you want to use your good or B skis.

  Conditions this afternoon were fairly good overall and made for some fun skiing. There are many scattered leaves and needles in some areas but it did not cause a problem at least today. The icy crust is broken up and mixed in with the soft snow to make for good glide and a fast ski but still plenty of grip for the kick. The track formed pretty shallow in some places but overall it is deep enough to hold the skis. The track is firm and the deck is firming up for better pole plants in most places.

  Re-groomed Hiram this afternoon to try to breakup the icy crust from the freezing rain on Sunday night and to try to cover up some of the oak leaves. The old Tidd Tech Trail Tenderizer used at Hiram can't dig deep into the base to bring up fresh snow but it was able to breakup the icy crust and covered up some of the oak leaves. It will take more snow to completely cover them up. The track is not as well formed as I would like due to having to drive faster than ideal because the snowmobile was overheating. The overall condition now is fair to good.
