  Once again, trail conditions remain essentially the same as reported over the last several days. The bottom-line is that skating is still good, classical tracks are well-defined and reasonable deep, but more leaves and sticks are being deposited and/or appearing on the trails.

  Skate deck is hard with some corduroy, and pretty good in most places. The deck is somewhat icier in a few of the open places where yesterday's sun was able to minimally melt the snow. Classical tracks still in really good shape.

  Arriving about 2:30 trails were being groomed post yesterday's race. Initially I was skating on a very hard packed deck and had some difficulty setting an edge. I then decided to just double pole in the tracks that, apart from the occasional leaf or twig, were in very good shape. Finished-up with minimal skating on newly groomed sections that skied much better. Should be fine for tomorrow.

  We finished up as the high, junior high school races were to begin. Conditions were mostly good for skating. New grooming was limited to classical tracks over the race course(s). Hoar frost down on the trail improved some sections that were getting hard and icy. Classical tracks were very good where we double-poled, if a tad slow. B skis, but better could probably be used depending on where you go.

  Again, not much new to report from yesterday's posting. This morning's mist might have created a bit of a crust, but not hard. Some harder and icy sections, but skiable. Plenty of km that skied nicely, and fast. Grooming in progress as we left (about 3 pm).
