Notes

Trails are on the golf course. Some nice hills but most of the course is pretty exposed. There is one back leg that is quite shaded and seems to hold snow long after the rest of the course loses it. Rentals at the chalet.

Conditions at Como were excellent. As good as they’ve ever been. The groomer was heading out as I was leaving but even with fresh snow on the trail the going was smooth and easy. No ice or bare spots and the rails looked good.

Como saw heavy use from the high school meet with the deck hard and slick (but not icy) and the classic tracks washed out. There is plenty of snow and with a good grooming, skiing should improve.

Great weather, no bare spots or leaves, and a fresh coating of snow made for a good morning to ski. Trails had not been groomed and many skiers have used the trails so conditions were not perfect. Entire trail system is open.

The trails had been groomed but the grooves were not well-defined yet after the recent snowfall. It was still really good classic skiing. The wind started picking up later on but the temperature/humidity weren't too harsh.

Skied classical. Trails were rolled but not groomed yet. Skate skiing trail not too wide (per skier I met on trail). Very nice snow.

It was cold but with no wind it was enjoyable (well to be honest there was some wind, I had a burrito for dinner). The downhill slope kept there lights on till 8:40 pm. Was able to get really good kick in the classic tracks.

The skate deck was just right. I did not notice a single icy spot. The classic tracks looked okay too, though I didn't try them. Since most of my ski was after dark I went prepared with a headlamp, but didn't need it because lights were on at the downhill slope for downhill classes. Even the back bowl was bright enough to ski safely.

Conditions were good to very good for skating; poor to fair for classic. Trails had not been groomed since last night's snow. Thus, it was skier packed and tracked. Generally, it skated fine except at the bottom of some hills where a crown of snow existed between the two tracks thus making it hazardous to snow plow to slow down. It was also mildly rutted in softer sections. Classic track was inconsistent. I used FastWax Red LF.

Ski conditions were good. Fast thanks to the dip in temperatures. Trail had not yet been groomed however easy to skate and the classical tracks were very visible.

Great conditions. The new snow was a little soft and slow but the base was flat and firm and even so it felt faster than it was. Track was shallow and fast. I skied around noon, trails were just groomed.
