Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Almost all trails and one long one: Wolf Tracks were re-groomed after receiving about an inch and a half of fluffy snow this morning. Conditions are excellent with a trail base of about 8 inches! Groomers are scheduled to go out again tonight. It’s a great weekend of skiing.

I skate skied Base to Tornado Valley to XC Express to Nepco’s Cruise and on to River Run for a total of 19 kilometers. The trails had all been freshly groomed with perfect corduroy. The skate deck was firm and speed was good. Control on the steep downhills was very good. Overall I would rate conditions as excellent.

Temperature was 7 degrees when I started skiing around 3:00 pm. I started out on the Base Loop out to Tornado Alley. The skate deck was fresh corduroy, firm but probably the slowest I have ever experienced here. With the slow conditions, I thought it might be a good time to ski Nutcracker. However, when I got there, I discovered it had not been groomed recently as there was approximately 5 inches of fresh snow on the trail. I decided to try it anyway. Speed on the ungroomed trail was about the same as it was on the groomed trail. Control on the steep downhills was good but not as good as on the freshly groomed trails where I was able to edge my skis. I survived Nutcracker without falling. From there I skied the Yukon trail out to Island Hop. The skate deck on Island Hop was soft with many parts of the trail drifted in. I continued on the XC Express and Nepco’s Cruise finishing up several hours of skiing with just shy of 14 kilometers. I was dressed warm and comfortably so I had a great ski outing. I should note that when I jumped in the groomed classic tracks, I found them to be firm and fast.

What a spectacular day at Winter Park! The trails were groomed perfectly and in excellent condition. Skied nearly the entire trail system. Coming from snow starved Madison, it was a treat to ski on plentiful natural snow. Today was one of those days that remind me why I love to ski.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
All of the trails have been groomed in the last two days and are looking fabulous! There’s a ton of fresh corduroy and classic tracks out there this morning. The average base is 6-7 inches so the coverage is very good. It’s shaping up to be an excellent weekend of skiing.

Conditions are first rate here at Winter Park. Skied out to Lake Marie and then through Wolf Tracks, everything was really nice for skate, good classic track as well. Fast and a lot of fun.

Classic skied Tornado Alley, Nutcracker, Yukon, Beaver Pond. Very well groomed (Nutcracker was less recently groomed), lots of debris in classical tracks. Many thanks to MWP for keeping the chalet (and ski shop) fully open, which is greatly appreciated on these very cold days.

Despite the high winds, both the skate deck and classic tracks were in great condition! Very little debris was encountered, and the debris that the wind dropped onto trails was easy to avoid. Classic tracks were deep and in tact, despite the use by skiers young and old, experienced and novice. The skate deck was firm and thus offered a pleasant experience. The Winter Park trails offer shelter from the wind. It was a beautiful day to be there! Winter Park never disappoints!

Almost the whole park was groomed last night and, even though it snowed a bit on top of the fresh corduroy, I had a fantastic day out on the trails! The new snow made the black diamond trails I skied (Windy Ridge, Nutcracker, and Beaver Pond) controllable but not too terribly soft. The double tracked classic-only trail Sidekick was also freshly groomed for the first time! The good skis came out for their maiden voyage this year as the base is now about 6 inches. Conditions are excellent!

With all the new snow, I decided it was a good time to use my backcountry skiis. I skied the Big Pine Wilderness trail. I had to break the trail for the entire Big Pine trail. It was nice to get back out on my backcountry skis for the.first time this season. I then skied the base loop and VOMax trails for a total of 11 kilometers. Backcountry skiing can be slow but it’s still very enjoyable. All the new snow should make outstanding conditions once the groomers work their magic.
