  Superb conditions on the outer loops this afternoon. Hard to imagine better natural snow conditions. Classic tracks were mainly solid and fast, skate deck was a tiny bit on the soft side but I didn't see any significant ski gouges. Eastman Nature Center loop hadn't been groomed yet today, but was still pretty good.

  Classic skied Lake and Eagle, came back via Northern Lights. Lake and Eagle were about perfect with nice deep tracts. Only meet two other skiers. Northern Lights getting a little washed out on the sharp corners from heavier traffic previous day. Valley trail was of course perfect. Beautiful scenery thought out.

  The Lake Trail was in fantastic shape. The classic track on Northern Lights was well loved and losing form. The man made snow loops were outstanding. The skate decks were firm but not icy in the limited places that I used them. All in all, awesome skiing.

  I skied the multi-use bike/hike/ski trail after work and it was fantastic. Not super firm and poles went all the way thru sometimes but I can't even recall the last year those trails were skiable. Was a great time.
