  As much as I appreciate the man made snow, it just felt good to be on real thing at French this morning. I classic skied on the freshly groomed corduroy--no classic tracks. I thought it was really in pretty good shape considering what little snow we've had.
As usual the best snow was in the hilly trails west of the bay. I would start at the Visitor Center. The trail from the parking lot is really packed down and a little icy. I got the old-time cross country feel this morning without one other person around -- a little different from Theo yesterday!

  Lights on at 5 am and still some corduroy left from grooming a day ago! Deck near perfect: firm and fast. Few minor low or icy patches that are easy to avoid. A couple areas with blown leaves. Used good skis withou any problem. Only other living soul out was a deer. Minor rut on first downhill to avoid. About as good as ever- will be a perfect morning to get a ski in.

  Skied all the loops except for the 1/2 half of the Challenge Hill since that wasn't open. Overall the skate deck was good. No classic track set. Good coverage everywhere, noticed only a couple of bare spots and the bridge on Meadow was a little thin. The only places that seemed icy were Lagoon and downhill and the 2-way sections of Lakeview. Lots of leaf debris on the trail. Really nice to ski on natural snow.

  Saw the groomers out this morning on my way to work and wondered if they would be opening French soon. Sure enough it's open! Kudos to the groomers on doing a great job getting the trails in skiable conditions. Nice to be on natural snow. Husband and I both skied classic. I was on my Twin Skins and he had Rex blue on for kick which was really good. Skate looked good too. Watch out for leaf debris, a few random branches (especially on the medicine loop) and some icy patches. The trail by the parking lot isn't in the best of shape (mostly ice) so recommend walking up to the building to put on skis.
