  Wonderful skating on the 5k after work. The crust is broken up so control is good and it is reasonably fast. If after dark, it is best to bring a headlamp to supplement the lights. Great skiing, thanks Snowfkake. The 10k looked good too but did not ski it.

  Trails regroomed after the big high school meet Friday. Perfect skating and striding at Snowflake on Saturday. Low light but I hope the rock-solid classic track shows up on the picture.

Grooming Scheduling 
  Conditions: Good! All trails were groomed and classic track set on Tuesday. The classic track set-up overnight and today it was well-formed and fast, even with 1/2" fresh snow.
Snowflake is hosting the Duluth East high school invitational on Friday, Jan 22nd. The 10k trail will be closed at 6 pm on Thursday, Jan 21st, for course prep. The 5k will remain open and lighted until 9 pm. All trails will be closed on Friday, Jan 22 until 4:30 pm. The trails will be re-groomed on Friday night and Snowflake will be open for business as usual at 7 am on Saturday.

  Conditions: 10km trail - Highly variable. Fresh snow from last night.
The trails were being groomed at 3pm, while I was skiing. The classic track was being set first, so when the skate deck was groomed, the classic track was flattened at random points along the trail. The conditions went from skied out but firm, to very soft in the skate lane and track sidewalls. I hope the groomers will have a chance to do a post-closing groom before the temperatures warm up later this week.

  Broke out the "A" skis! Great skiing in the gentle snow today at snowflake. I skied both skate and classic, both short and long loops. What a beautiful day in the woods. About 15 F, Swix blue gave great kick, Fast Wax blue paste gave surprisingly good glide for both skate and classic. Sufficient other skiers to keep the classic track pretty clear of fresh snow, and the skate lane not yet too deep with new snow. When this snow is over, a good groom and we will be set!
