  I did a little post-Birkie skiing, classical, about 10km this morning. Beautiful tracks but the snow is very soft and slow. Dog tracks in the skate lane are everywhere. I'll regroom skate lanes Tuesday morning, then probably wait for more snow before another groom.

Grooming

  Groomed all of the loops today. The 1" of new, moist snow was "just what the doctor ordered"; just enough to cover everything up and set nice tracks and corduroy. I met a couple of really happy skate skiers out there!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  I groomed/scarified the skate lanes this morning to make the hard-packed trails safe and ski-able again. Classic tracks are solid but somewhat icy (blue klister conditions) and some stretches have oak leaves in the tracks. The next groom will be after we get some snow.

  After skating the Rib Lake system on Saturday afternoon I tackled the hillier sections of the Forest Springs trail system. Although the skate lane was a bit crunchy after the warm-up on Thursday, nowhere was it scary-icy, not even on the steep down hills of Rollercoaster, Skidder or Jammer. Rollercoaster is so much fun because of one steep downhill followed quickly by an uphill you can get up entirely on momentum from the down, followed by yet another plunge that throws your heart into your throat, just like a rollercoaster. Scott groomed the skate lane again on Sunday morning, which was enticing as we went by on the classic tracks. Thanks Scott!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  I groomed the skate lanes this morning; they were hard-packed and a bit beat up after a lot of use (by the local school 8th grade class) yesterday. Now I'll go out and ski. Everything is in excellent shape, including the tracks.
