Afternoon
Grooming Secondhand 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Finally, a 4-inch snowfall allowed us to groom the trails we want to. Robert did the skate loops, then skied them and reports they are very good, safe for good skis. I groomed and tracked classic loops. Mostly good to excellent tracks, more deep set than anything we've been able to do with scant snow this year. Talked to a few skiers who skied classic and they thought it was great. Use your best skis safely.

Firsthand: Freestyle 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Just skied a few of the skate loops and trails are in excellent shape. On my grooming report I recommended B skis but after my ski I can feel comfortable recommending good skis without any risk of damage.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Picked up 3-4" of snow overnight and just finished grooming all of the skate loops. Still recommending B skis since the fluffy snow compacted down quite a bit on the still thin base.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Finished setting track on all classic loops this morning. Some turned out quite well. Overall, most of it is fair to good, but there are a few sections, mostly on the last 2 kilometers back to the warming building, especially through pine thicket areas, where the tracks are quite shallow and brown. It's better than I thought it would be given our barely groomable amount of new powder snow. I would use B skis, although with care in the trouble spot areas good skis could be used. Keep doing those Heikii Lunta dances.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
Groomed and continued with the never ending brushing on the skate loops today. With the daily dustings of snow, conditions continue to improve and the trails actually ski real well but we still have a thin base with some leaf debris and occasional snirt. Still recommending rock or B skis.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Just got in from skiing Short Cut and Wild Thing loops on the classic side. A 1/2-inch powder cover on both the skate side and tracks has covered all the brown spots. Tracks are mostly good, though thin in spots, especially in the pine thickets. I used my B skis but wouldn't hesitate to use good skis now. Will hold off grooming again until we can get a couple of inches more to keep from getting back down to brown in the thin areas. Overall, a very fine ski this afternoon.

Skied the Shortcut. Pretty good coverage everywhere. Some thin spots, but easily avoidable. Tracks on the last section of the trail are thin and washed out in some segments. To be expected as it is used by all classic skiers to return. Chalet is opened. Really enjoyed skiing here!

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
I went out and groomed and tracked all classic loops early this morning. For the most part tracks turned out much better than I expected. We have missed the last couple of snowfalls that areas only 20 or 30 miles away got the past few days, but the 1-1-2" I had to work with was just enough. That said, you will run into short pieces of trail now and then where some leaves and dirt turned up. Looked to me like easy to avoid. Overall, I would classify the classic loops as fair to good, mostly good. I also groomed one pass over Ridge Trail and Will's Crossing on skate side. Not great results. Too much brown turned up especially in pine thicket areas. Will probably leave the loose snow on top for skaters on the rest of the skate loops. A little more work for them, but easier on the skis.

Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Skied a couple of the classic loops today. Tracks are skied in following the last track setting I was able to do two weeks ago. Surprisingly good most of the time. We've missed out on the 3-5 inches places just 20 or 30 miles from us have gotten, but I will groom the two inches of fresh stuff we have tomorrow morning provided the temperature gets down to at least the low 20s. Overall, even without grooming, classic skiing is fairly good. Will try to groom at least some of the skate loops tomorrow if the temperature cooperates.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
Taking advantage of the snow drought and thin base to mow and brush the skate loops, widening them out as much as possible. In the process there's a lot of debris being thrown on to the trail - nothing fresh snow won't cover. The mowing will continue at least through Wednesday.
