Firsthand Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Beautiful afternoon for skiing today with lots of sunshine and no wind. There was around 1" of new snow and many oak leaves in some places after the strong winds Thursday. It was slow skiing today with the new snow and the subzero temps but still a nice day to be in the quiet woods. With the little bit of new snow the track was still somewhat soft and unstable.
With the track still being fairly soft and the 1" or so of new snow I decided to reset the track after skiing today. It should have also covered up some of the leaves that had collected in the old track after the strong winds Thursday. I am not sure how the track turned out overall since it was dark by the time I finished this evening. Hopefully it turned out well and will be good skiing this weekend.

  It was a nice afternoon of skiing at Hiram. Temperature was around 17 with a little snow falling. The new snow was a slow today but still good enough glide to make it fun. The track and deck did not firm up much overnight so it is still to soft and is not holding up well to ski traffic. Maybe the subzero weather setting in tonight for the next number of days will firm it up more. Overall still good skiing today.

  Groomed Hiram today after around 6 inches of new snow last night. All the forest litter is covered up again for now. The track is set pretty much to the full depth of the track setter but is very soft. Hopefully it will firm up overnight with the sub zero temps forecast. Snow was still falling from the trees as I was grooming, looked like a winter wonderland. Get out and enjoy the new snow while conditions are good.

  The conditions at Hiram are still holding up pretty well with the sub zero temps keeping the track set hard and still fairly fast. There is more forest litter collecting in the track and creating a little drag on the skis. New snow is needed to cover it up. Still a good weekend of skiing with lots of sunshine and blue sky.

  Had a fun fast ski at Hiram this afternoon. The track setup hard and fast over night after grooming Wednesday. Most areas the track is fairly well formed but it is shallow in some areas where there was not enough loose snow for the track setter to work with. There are many oak leaves mixed into the snow in some places but they were not causing any problem today. Get out and enjoy some skiing while the conditions are good.
