  We had awesome trails for our Vasaloppet USA races with machine made snow two weeks ago. Now we have the best trail conditions in years with natural snow. The five inches that fell earlier was groomed. The three or so inches that fell on Thursday was groomed and tracked on Friday. Plans are to groom and track both the Nordic Center Trails and the Northern Practice Loops on Sunday after the snow stops falling. Come and enjoy the best skiing conditions in years.

  Skated this year's Vasaloppet course, which was mostly groomed. Skate deck was smooth but a little soft, not unexpected with the new snow. Classic track was fantastic for downhill rest breaks and double poling. Thanks to the groomers for continuing to provide some excellent skiing, hopefully it won't get too warm too soon!

  The absolute best trail conditions in the past 5 years. All trails were groomed Saturday morning with classic tracks set everywhere. Come ski, it's awesome!

  9K of the 11K loop at the trail center are open; snow is being spread on the rest...quite an operation, BTW. The trails are firm, but not icy. The classic tracks are hard pack, a mixture of new snow and man made...aggressive. Oslo Blue worked until it wore off (no binder...oops). Skied with Tim Nelson, he used 1814 one loop and grip tape the next.

  Went to Mora to see what the trails were like after the snowfall Saturday (about 2 inches) and in advance of the race this coming Saturday. With temps around 10-15 degrees, skied around a 9 K loop twice from the Nordic center, all of which are part of the 17K race course loop. Track was firm and glazed, Some dirt to be avoided and oak leaf debris. Both sets of skis, one with grip tape and one with Rex 1814 picked up enough debris to make for some jerking gliding especially when double poling. Otherwise both wax combinations worked well. Skate deck was very firm and fast. with enough loose snow to get a bite on the uphills. The 3k northwestern loop of the race course was still being developed. I did not ski the lake loops or the trails that lead to the Nordic center from the lake.
