  Old 32 parking lot at 1:45 pm. 37 degrees F and sunny. Last nights temp around 20 F. Went to nearly Smyth road and back. Used the shortcut on the way back. Surprisingly good again. Icy sections which made downhills "interesting" are mainly the first 1/2 Km out of the old 32 parking lot and also the first 1 km on the "Smyth side" of Sullivan Springs Road. Both of these are in the shade all day. All the rest is good but the area from about the 10 and 1/2 km down the hill going toward Sullivan Springs has an area about 10 feet long that is down to the grass (see picture). I was able to put on the brakes and ski through it but probably be a "skis off situation" from now on. Passed a skate skier (OK, maybe he passed me--its all semantics) who said skate skiing was also good. Back to old 32 lot at 4:15. 40 degrees F.

  Still 99.99% coverage. Actually still could have used A skis as nothing that could not easily be stepped around. Waxless skis again the ticket for classic. Left old 32 parking lot at noon, 46 degrees F. Went to about the 13km marker and back. Packy to slushy conditions throughout except in areas always in the shade which were slightly icy -- these were few. The section that was the wettest with a couple areas of grass showing through on part of the trail was from around 10 and 1/2km to the 11km post just west of Sullivan Springs Rd. 55 degrees on return to parking lot at 2:30pm. Timing will be key to maximum enjoyment this week.

  Surprisingly good conditions. Classic skied today. On the snow 10:00 42 degrees. Trail was just starting to soften up. Conditions improved the first two hours then leveled off. Last two hours were a little stick but the base was nice and firm. About 90% of the leaves in the track melted down an inch or two and had little effect on skiing. Five other skiers. Three of us classical and 3 skating. Off the snow 2:33 52 degrees.

  Unbelievable conditions. Definitely worth the 90 mile drive from Appleton. Left Old 32 parking lot at 1pm. 39 Degrees F and moderate winds. Skiing classic on Waxless B skis with warm glide wax and some liquid wax on kick section. Nearly full depth tracks had been set and 100% coverage. Skate deck also impeccable with fresh combing and probably evidence of only 5 skaters since grooming. Went to nearly Smyth Road and turned around. On the way back, the previously variable tracks that had alternated between slightly glazed and a bit tacky were now nearly all tacky and slower but not slushy. Skate deck also transitioned to softer. 46 degrees F at 2:30 pm on our return to parking lot. Could have easily used A skis but waxless seems like the ticket, so if you have "A" waxless skis, those would be perfect. Thanks groomers! Put some money in the tip jar after skiing this gem.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Single track set all the way out to Smythe. The north end is just combed out as there was a slight warm-up. Had to comb everything on the way back to old 32. Best overall skiing will be behind the golf course.
