  Main trail (Whispering Pines) is now open (with classical tracks too), in addition to the upper and lower shortcuts, Haugs, and Chuckwagon. The newly groomed sections are still somewhat soft, but certainly skiable. We skied late morning into early afternoon. Snow was getting a bit moist, but not too bad. Clouding over on the drive home, so if this extends over the trails it might help. Nice skiing all-in-all.

  As of late morning into very early afternoon, both shortcuts were groomed down to Isaac Lake. Beautiful day and most sections skied nicely. Skate deck has firmed up but still hollow is some spots. No classical tracks set. Temperatures were rising. Photos from Kayo Aslagson.

  Additional grooming since yesterday afternoon: the first couple km of the main trail up to the warming hut, down the "birkie" hill and on to the junction with the upper shortcut and Finland; Haug's cutoff. Trail still soft (I was losing a good deal of pole on the uphills) and some of the hills are churned-up quite a bit. Surprising number of skiers out today. Classic tracks in good shape.

  Snow drought is over! As of this afternoon, about 5 km of trail had been groomed. Center of skate lane was a bit soft, and avoid the margins as skis become submarines. Classical tracks were in good shape, but also soft in spots. Grooming was done earlier today so the trails need to set up. Paul (groomer) was out while I was skiing and busting through the deep snow on the ungroomed trail sections. He said he was hoping to get the main trail groomed for tomorrow, but not Deep Woods and Finland. Needless to say with overnight lows of nearly -20F things were pretty slow. Plenty of snow so coverage is excellent.
