Great conditions! New classic track on one or both sides with skating down the center. Very diverse terrain from very easy to very challenging. The nicest lit trail system I have skied on.

Secondhand Scheduling 
[ Trails: Closed, Bare ground ]
Mich Tech reports: The Michigan Tech trails will be closed on Monday, December 30, including access to the parking lot and wax facilities. The forecast calls for heavy snow starting sometime in the morning. We will be working on the grooming plan for the December 31 training day and will communicate that later on Monday.
There will be no access to the parking lot or wax rooms and trailers to ensure the snowplows and front-end loaders can do their work during the day on Monday without having to work around vehicles.

Prime ski conditions are upon us. Deck is flat and firm. Add in mild temps and blue sky, and skiing did not suck. Lower trails didn't have tracks yet, but according to the Tech Trails weekly email, those are going in today.

I skated Completion, Core, and Nara trails Thursday and all but Core was on the slow side as they had just been rolled but was still wonderful ski. Friday afternoon was so much better as all the trails had been nicely groomed- they must have spent many hours out grooming to hit all the trails they did. Thank you! We classic skied with no tracks but it was fine. The Nara trails were real nice (see picture on Homestead loop down by Pilgrim River) and sunset looking out in Valley off the loop.

Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
Remarkably good. Only the start area and right in front of the wax building had been rolled since yesterday, but that meant a fresh 1/2" of fluff on top of the oak leaves everywhere else. I skied the upper loops for an hour kicking extra blue and didn't hit anything. Oak leaves aren't much of an issue - I had really solid glide and no sudden grabs. Go get it!

26F at 11AM with 4" of fresh snow. Most of the upper trails rolled with 1" base. Caution advised on a few downhills with gravelly spots. Ski Skidder backwards for now. Lots of oak leaves in places, but overall decent skiing for low snowfall.
