Snow covered track for classical skiing. Hasn't been tracked since the last snow. Someone snowshoeing has walked over many parts of the track. It was still an enjoyable ski.

Half inch of new snow covering debris on a firm track made for a great ski early this morning when temps were still in 20's. Wide grooming allowed for control on downhill curves.

I skied the Golden Anniversary State Forest River Road trails after work today. I was expecting trails to be a bit crusty and icy, but much to my delight, upon arrival, I found the trails to be groomed with a new track set. The conditions were fast, making the downhills challenging (not for the faint of heart), but the tracks held firm, and I made it around the curves at high speed. It was a fun ski!

Trails need grooming. Tracks need to be reset in several areas. Trail narrow on a few hills making for difficult climbs when ski tips catch in snow. Maybe just technique but I had a hard time and fell twice on hill descents and one time nearly hit a tree with the poor conditions on a downhill section. Snowmobile has been in there and turned around so there is additional damage from the machine. Parking area plowed out with plenty of parking.
