  A dusting of snow last evening helped to cover up more of the leaves, stick, needles and bits of pine cones that are in the track. There is still enough depth to the track to stay locked in even on the down hill runs. It was a beautiful calm sunny day for skiing at Hiram today. Over all it is still worth going out for a ski there. Remember it is groomed for classic skiing only, no skating. The base is so thin we really need some new snow to be able to groom again and do a good job.

  Track is getting shallow and pretty dirty in some areas. There was a little dusting of fresh snow that covered up most of the ice so hard wax would probably work. I still had klister on from last weekends icy conditions which was working fine today. The worst areas for tack being dirty was any place under the pines. The first loop had been walked on so the sides are some what chewed up. Overall it is still worth getting out for a ski at Hiram. It has not been groomed since January 15 but we really need more snow before trying to groom again or we might make it worse with the base so thin in most areas.

  Skied Hiram late this morning while it was still below freezing. The track was very icy and fast so glide was no problem but the hard kick waxes were not working to well. The track has gotten shallow with the warm temps this week and more leaves & sticks have fallen in the track. There are no bare spots yet but the base is thin so we need it to cool down and snow more before it can be groomed again. It is still a fun ski but conditions are far from ideal. I plan on going back tomorrow but I will be using klister wax in order to get better grip.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Groomed this morning after the 2 or 3 inches of fluffy new snow yesterday. Just a few scattered Oak leaves otherwise the track is pretty clean. Not enough new snow to set a really good deep track but still very good skiing. It was a little slow this afternoon with the cold temps and fresh snow blowing into the track in places. Get out and enjoy the skiing before the next melt comes along.

  Beautiful afternoon for skiing at Hiram with the snow falling, very quiet and peaceful. Around 2 or 3 inches of new snow today so all the leaves, grass, twigs, bark and dirt were covered up. Conditions are getting better with the little 2 or 3 inch snow falls adding up.
