Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
The trails were in excellent condition and recently groomed. With the high moisture content of many of our snowfalls- hard waxes haven't performed as well as you would expect on a freshly groomed track. I utilized a cold temperature klister - Rex Blue- which worked perfectly!

The groomers do a great job here, but we are constantly battling hikers walking in the track. The higher traffic areas were walked out and the track hard to find, but on the less used trails it was in decent condition. So great to be out on a nice afternoon!

With the wetter snow content of the groomed trails, the tracks are icy. With the warmer temperatures today, I will be using Rex Liquid Gold Klister for the best skiing experience. Trails are overall in great shape.

The classic track was hard and fast, I had to wax a lot softer than the temp. The trees are still heavy with snow at was great. This ski is what winter is all about.
