Morning
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Robert groomed all skate loops yesterday and they looked to be in great shape this morning. I just finished grooming and tracking all classic loops. Almost all of it turned out very good to excellent. For the last 2k in on the shared trail with skate skiers there are a few places where the track is shallow. There was considerable oak leaf and pine needle/cones debris when I went out, but most all of it groomed out.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Touched up all of the skate loops this afternoon, grooming in the fresh and drifted snow from yesterday. Other than a fair amount of tree debris from yesterday's winds, trails are in great shape. Grooming plans: Will will be grooming and setting track on the classic trails in the morning.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Skied Oak Ridge, Hair Raiser and Short Cut this afternoon on the classic side. Tracks were hard and very fast. Unfortunately there is a fair amount of oak leaves and other litter in places. Otherwise it was a good ski with a trail rating of mostly good and some fair. The blower motor for the heater in our groomer went out last week. They don't make the part anymore but we were able to find a dealer in Illinois with one and it should get here in time to install and be ready for grooming this weekend. Groomed with a Buddy heater on the front seat last week. Grooming plan is to regroom Friday night and Saturday morning. Should be able to get things in good shape for the weekend.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
I usually skate ski Long Rider. However, today I decided to check out the classic trails. Grooming had just been completed and I was probably the second skier on Lion's Pride. I found the tracks to be shallow and somewhat erratic. Overall conditions on my first pass I would rate as good. I went back out to ski the Oak Ridge loop. The classic tracks had firmed up nicely second time around up to Doug's Folley. I continued on to Oak Ridge and Wild Thing which had lesser use and therefore had not set up as well. Overall conditions on my second pass I would rate as very good. The colder temperatures today didn't pose any problems and it was a great day of classic skiing.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
All loops at Razorback are fully groomed. Skate trails were groomed last night and are much firmer than yesterday. Groomed and tracked classic trails this morning. They might be a touch soft here and there, but for the most part are very good to excellent.

Evening
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
As Ray Stevens once famously sang, everything is beautiful. Bob Polich groomed all the skate loops today and I followed by grooming and tracking all the classic loops. Honestly, everything is beautiful. I skied Lions Pride, Pine Hollow and Short Cut, and all had beautiful tracks. All should be firm and great for skiing for those willing to dress for the deep freeze.

Afternoon
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Groomed all the skate loops this afternoon after making a repair to the Gator that prevented us from touching up the trails since last weekend. I also skied Long Rider after grooming and conditions are still a bit soft and the grooming was only mediocre with ridging due to the multiple passes in the soft snow. Unfortunately this was very noticeable skiing. Grooming plans: Plan to groom the skate loops again tomorrow night with hopefully better results. Will is grooming and setting track this afternoon on the classic trails.

Morning
Observation 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
As of this morning there is about two inches of loose powder on top of a solid base. We would have groomed today, but we lost a bogey wheel on the Gator. We're hoping the new part gets here overnight so we do the fix tomorrow and get back on the trails. In the meantime, the tracks from the weekend are still in good shape. Most were well skied in yesterday. It may be a bit soft and slow today. Same for the skate side. We'll update as soon as we get the Gator back out there.

Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Yesterday and early today Robert and I completed four passes on all skate and classic loops. Mostly excellent with a few places still just a little soft after 12 inches of snowfall. I just finished skiing 18k on the classic loops and they are in very good condition. Mostly firm tracks with a couple of lesser used loops still a bit soft. Overall, some of the best ski conditions of the entire winter.

Morning
Firsthand: Freestyle Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
I groomed all the skate trails early this morning and Will is currently grooming and setting track on the classic trails. I skated a short loop after grooming to check condition of the trails and they are extremely soft and slow. There are some center ridges in spots from making multiple passes as well as some shallow gator ruts - more cosmetic than having any impact on skiing.
