  Elver snowmaking loop was still firm at 10 am today. Deck was pretty rutted by someone skating when it was soft yesterday. Otherwise, skate deck ranged from firm, fast corn to glare ice. Classic tracks on the western portion only; deep and icy. Still a deep pack.

  The groomer had just finished around 9:30. Fresh corduroy skate deck, yesterday's dusting refreshed the classical tracks and striding was very good on both sides of the shelter. Skating was excellent, much better than Friday and yesterday which was pretty good.

  There is a crusty corduroy track on the manmade loops and hill. Faint icy classical track to the west, on the east it looked as though it'd been set but was icy as well. The short climb had corduroy up to the first hill but nothing after. The long climb had been groomed, went down the big hill with no problem but it's totally iced and not much fun, there's bare ice at the bottom. Park webpage says all trails but manmade loop are closed. Actually pretty good skating on a very fast track but quite a let down from earlier this week.

  Skied at 8:00 AM before warm up and the trail was in excellent condition for both striding and skating. Must have been groomed earlier as the race last night would have worn out the track. So Elver can sometimes be a pleasant surprise and I thank whoever groomed the trail! Let's hope it survives the next two days.
