  Skied Island Trail and back on half of the Hill Trail and Fairway Trail starting around noon. Everything looked pristine! Skate deck was very soft, and heard from another classic skier out there that the tracks were also soft.

  Very good conditions and groomed this morning. Great grip and glide and trails are in exceptional condition. Used Fischer Twin Skins which I just purchased and blue glide wax and good results. Well worth the drive from Woodbury.

  It's been a long time since we've skied at Baker, and it did not disappoint! By the time we got there around 3pm, it was skied in, but firm and fast -- not slippery or icy hardpack. Classic tracks looked good too. Even though it was windy, there wasn't a lot of drifting in open areas as I expected. What a great ski!

  First trip to Baker in five years toady (and only my second ever). Arrived mid-morning just as a race was wrapping up. Found the trails used for the race to be slow, squeaky, and packed down hard from the race traffic; such that a technique challenged skier such as myself would have a little trouble holding an edge. Found the trails not used for the race and the trails that were re-groomed after the race (thank you so much groomers!) to be Goldilocks just right corduroy. Easy to edge and noticeably faster from the fresh grooming and warming temperatures. I believe I skied all (or at least most) of the trails and found them to be in excellent shape except for three basketball-sized grassy spots in what is likely a wind blown area of the trail on the fairway behind the clubhouse. All in all, another great day to be on skis and I want to re-emphasize my thanks to the grooming crew for going out after the race to address the hard-pack. It turned a rough day into a memorable experience.

  Excellent conditions for an early morning ski. Trails had been freshly groomed and the classic trails were deep and well defined. The skiing was wonderful with dim sun and a light breeze.
