Classic skied the Wells this morning. As expected, oak leaves and pines needles creeping in a bit--but not bad at all. With trails skied in a bit and warmer temps (was it above zero?), gliding was much improved making for excellent classic skiing on the Plover River Trail!

Woo-hoo! Hit the PRT trifecta--excellent double-track grooming, beautiful sunny skies, and minimal oak leaf debris! It was excellent. Skied the whole loop from Barbara's Lane end, and even did an extra blue loop at the end. Decided to go out early, risking colder temps vs. higher wind. Wind was not noticeable 90% of the time due to the woods coverage. You could feel it on the field near 66 and along Airport. Made some clothing adjustments that actually worked. Despite -10 temp, my feet, hands, and face/eyes were completely comfortable. As you would expect, there wasn't much glide--although I had more than I thought I would have. First time on classic skis this season, so last night I scraped off summer wax and brushed. That's all. It was fine. Mohair kick zones performed perfectly--never slipped or grabbed. Get out while to the Wells while you can, as the oak leaves won't wait for you!

Afternoon
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Rock skis ]
Trails have been groomed and are in poor to fair condition. We have tried to remove as many foot print and snowshoe prints as possible without ruining the trail. The snow is thin with icy areas and some marks still in the icy base. Track has not been set due to the low snow conditions.
