  All trails packed, groomed, and double tracked for classic. Six inches of light fluffy new snow. Awesome conditions.

  Still excellent conditions on Trout Trails. Just a handful of small dirt clumps in 10k of skiing. Tracks well used but mostly still in very good condition. Doan Lake loop fully tracked and good skiing, but a few bare spots and thin under the pine trees. Too many small woody shoots sticking up on the trail...more of a distraction than a problem.

  Skiing was very good with no obvious rocks or debris. Some skiers I met had removed some churned up rock at the beginning of the south entry. I did not encounter any. The tracks were very good, a little soft in a few places but overall the vast majority of the trail skied very well.

  I broke trail on the Doan Lake trails to the Trout Lake intersection this morning. Trout trails were freshly groomed with double classic tracks and looked awesome. The groomer passed my on his way down the Doan Lake loop. He was struggling a bit in the 10 inches of cold dry snow. Work on the Doan Lake trail was still in progress as I headed home. Skiing this week will be awesome. B Skis just because the base is very soft and very few minor windblown areas.
