  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.

  Back at Baker! Skating deck was a bit soft but good overall. Classic tracks were not set due to forecast snow but they said they will pack and track the trails after next snowfall. Even with the grey cloudy weather, very beautiful with the snow on all the trees!

  Sweet perfection. What a gem! Right up there with Woodland Hills (not quite as punchy). Noon snow was slightly faster than stuff falling later. I lucked out on timing getting first tracks after the double groomer for most of my second lap. Thank you, thank you for freshening up the skate deck mid-snowfall! 5 inches of new snow today, yet still firm as race baskets were holding up fine.

  I skate skied most of the trails. They were all in great shape. When I left there was about 1" of new snow on them with more falling. Enjoy it while we can!!
