Firsthand: Freestyle Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Skiing was outstanding (freestyle)! Nice and fast in the evening just after temps dropped back below freezing. I did hit a surprise slow patch of snow on my second run down the waterfall, but otherwise, the snow was consistent and fast. One of the other groomers had groomed the race courses from the JNQ back in January. After I skied, I groomed the rest, except for a couple of segments. Tracks have been set, and the skate deck is nice and firm!

Took advantage of yesterday’s fresh snow and fresh grooming to ski before work this morning. Conditions were awesome! I’m hoping things stay reasonably cool over the next 24 hours so these conditions can continue through the weekend.

Firsthand: Freestyle 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
The trails are holding up really well despite little grooming over the past two weeks. Even the south-facing trails are in good shape. The skate deck was very firm but not excessively icy. It was just soft enough on top that I felt in control, and conditions were fast. It could probably use a light till, and the Pistenbully is back working again, so we should be able to do some grooming.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
1.5” fresh snow on Thursday. It’s a little slippery and rutted underneath, so I decided to groom. Got skate lane combed on a good part of the Grant-in-Aid trails, but Pistenbully has had some technical issues this week, so we have not been able to till the trails, and biathlon side remains ungroomed. That shouldn’t be too detrimental as there is fresh snow on the trails, and it will get soft during the day, regardless of grooming. We still haven’t had much melting except on Exit Ramp, where southern exposure will make that trail burn off first. For now, it’s good.

Groomed and reset the track with the Pistenbully. Skate lane has also been refreshed. Should be good for a while.

Firsthand: Classic 
[ Good skis ]
Though sunny and high 30’s, my old white-bottomed waxless skis worked quite well. They’re slightly wider than my others, so that probably helped, too.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Conditions are great! Nearly 5” new snow, and we did a tag team grooming with snowmobile and Pistenbully both working until the whole trail system was done.

Piston bully did one pass over most of the biathlon trails. Absolutely fantastic. The track was set up so firm and perfect. The skate deck was solid corduroy. These are the conditions you dream about all summer long.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Did one pass of the entire trail system with the Pistenbully. The thaw only lasted a few hours so did not affect the trails very deeply. It just made the top a little slick. Conditions are very good.

Conditions are excellent! The biathlon trails are all firm with an inch of new snow on top, so I left those as they were. The skate lanes on the Grant-In-Aid side were still really soft and interrupted by twin tracks from the JNQ races last weekend, so I tilled them with the Pistenbully and set a new track. This includes Main Street, Widow's Run, Otter Slide, Backtrack, and Exit Ramp. Enjoy!
