  Conditions: Skate and classic excellent on the manmade as expected.
A little rusty at this. The snow was firm and fast. Considered going out on the Thicket/Northern Lights (which was good for skate on Saturday) but decided not to as it was the hint of a dusting of snow on top of icy stuff. Don't need another fall this season.

  Conditions: Good for skate ski/fair for traditional.
The snow was groomed for skate ski but not for traditional. As a traditional skier I just followed alongside the skate ski trail or in some places made my own trail. Beautiful day out there --sunny and peaceful.

  Conditions: Good, fast. White.
Fast conditions at Elm Creek on the manmade snow loop, despite the cold. With the HS ski season finished, there was plenty of fresh corduroy even in the evening. The classic tracks were deep, but not too hard or icy--they even ran all the way up the big hill on the valley loop, no washout. Didn't venture onto the Northern Lights loop as I was on my A-skis.

  Excellent as usual. There was appx an inch of new fluff; NL trail not groomed yet as of 2 PM today but good coverage.

  Conditions: Valley has a firm deck with nice tracks. NL is not tracked, but fair snow coverage with an increasing amount of debris.
Not too many brave souls out there on what I thought was a pretty decent day, a little cool though. Slow going because I didn't change my wax from Friday, but still enjoyable. The surface of the wood bridge leading to the outer loops is more wood than snow. Sure could use some more of the white stuff!
