[ Good skis ]
Skate trails were great this morning! A little bit of snow has blown over, but nothing terrible. No ground showing and not icy. From what I could see, it looked like the classic trails were a bit old and choppy, but good enough to ski. Super smooth and plenty of room on the trail.

Dike East to Lindenwood lift-bridge skating lane renovated ( where enough snow ) and combed early this morning after a half inch of moisture ( rain, freezing rain, graupel, and wind-blown snow ) in the past day.  Deck is icy and fast with variable edging.  Exposed sections the deck blew to grass and dirt.  Otherwise an inch or two of icy base.  Classical tracks were not re-groomed.  They mostly have a half to an inch of wind-blown snow in an icy track.  Some sections of track have blown to bare ice.  Thin and bare sections where warm temps and sun transitioned the track a couple days ago.

Dike East to Lindenwood skating lane combed this morning. Rough, carved up, icy areas of the existing deck smoothed over. The deck was expanded into snow on either side of existing deck. An inch of fast edging over existing deck and two inches silky smooth deck over newly combed area with good edging. Three inch of compacted base with some short sections of thin deck under trees or areas exposed to wind and sun where grass and dirt are exposed. Classical tracks are fast and firm with spring-like conditions.

Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Dike East to Lindenwood lift-bridge classic track has transitioned in sunny sections in the past couple of days and those areas have icy tracks.  Shaded sections are firm and fast with well-defined tracks and decent kick.  Short sections of the track have dirt and grass in the bottom of the track from the groomer cutting through the snow on uneven ground and melting.  The Lindenwood lift-bridge to the campground classic track is shallow and has seen a lot of foot-traffic.  The Dike East to Lindenwood skate lane is firm and fast with an uneven deck from use before the deck firmed up.  The deck is icy in sunny sections.  Trails have a two inch compacted base.  Spring-like skiing.

Trails from Dike East to Lindenwood groomed late-morning after four and a half inches of dry fine-grained snow midday Tuesday through early Wednesday morning. Classical tracks are well formed with some limited shallow areas where dirt or grass/leaves were exposed in the bottom of the track. Most of the tracks were on a two inch packed base. Skating lane combed on a two inch compacted base. Trails were soft but quickly firming up after grooming.
