Firsthand: Classic Secondhand 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Skating lane re-combed this morning after lots of recent ski and foot traffic. Classical tracks are fast with good grip after yesterday's blast of light rain. Note: Construction started today at the old intake structure replacing the wood deck with metal one. A section of the area where the ski trail crosses has been plowed to bare ground for truck / skid steer access - but a snow path was left to cross that area. Workers thought they'd be done today or tomorrow.
