  Skied up Ridge Run from Cascade Lodge, over to Deeryard, around the loop, and back down connector to west Pioneer Loop. Temps were about 34 degrees down by the lake when I started and dropped as I climbed up to Deeryard. I used my waxless crowns, anticipating widely varying conditions and temps. They worked fine everywhere. There was about 3+ inches of new snow on the trails, some of which had been skier tracked, some of which I broke trail. The winds were very strong and tracks drifted in quickly after being skied as the parts I repeated on the way back were completely drifted in. But it was a great workout and a fine ski outing.

  Skied Deeryard loop from the top including Fire tower and short loops. A fair amount of drifting has occurred since last grooming but at least one of the two tracks was usually skied in or were after I went thru. Very little debris given all the wind we have had and kick and glide were good.

  From the Hall road trailhead Skied to Cascade and back around Massie and Hall loops. Massie and Hall are in fine shape. Tree debris and animal (wolf and deer) activity made the tracks on the connector start to break down, but was not a big problem. Temps near the lake were much nicer than over the hill, making this a good choice for cold skiing.

  Trail in good condition and fairly firm. Skied from Cascade to Solbakken and back. Lots of deer and wolf tracks. Saw some bone and hide chunks from a kill.

  Did a nice ski around the Massie and Hall loops from the Caribou Trail trailhead. Tracks were well formed, kick with Swix polar and glide were good in spite of below zero temps. Skate deck looked very firm as well. Lots of wolf, deer, and moose tracks!
