  Manmade loop at Elver is saving the season here in Madison. Great turnout for MadNorski races and lessons Tuesday evening. Should survive the warm-up and predicted rain.

  Freshly groomed Tuesday night and this afternoon with new corduroy for skaters and freshly set classical tracks. Very good condition with plenty of loose snow for an edge and control on the hill which had gotten rather slick and bumpy over the weekend. What an improvement from last years conditions, it's great to have a real hill. I talked to some skiers who were on the west trails who said it wasn't bad but when I was hiking on it after the first dusting I noted numerous rocks and branches still on the trail. Better use your rock skis.

  Awesome skate deck with fresh corduroy this morning! Likewise, full classic tracks set up for dozen+ happy C&S skiers :-) Thumbs up to the hill climbs, with a fantastic, straight descent! Overall great coverage on this 1.5km loop. Lastly, kudos to the Xmas Crew, groomer Dale S. and Yuri G. for presenting niceties on a Holiday!

  Nice trail, the fresh snow really helped to improve the classic track compared to yesterday. The hills make the small loop rather fun and challenging. Can't ask for more given the lack of snow. Rate it 10/10.

  Skied around noon. All of the manmade loop and the two big hills were in really good shape. Excellent cover. Classic tracks were just slightly chewed up, but still good. Skating was super nice with the new snow, but slow. Kick wax was Swix VR 55 with very good kick and glide. Overall a great Christmas Eve ski!
