  Recently groomed with apparently little post-grooming traffic. Skate deck is firm and pretty fast given the 12F temperature this afternoon. Skiing partner, going easy in advance of the Birkie was doing classical and reported similar conditions for the tracks. Nice, low key skiing today, unfortunately didn't have much time to take advantage of really good condition.

  Trails firmed-up overnight. There remain a few soft spots, again where drifting occurs. Skate deck is rutted and a tad rough where there was lighter traffic yesterday owing to the softness. Sections that saw heavier traffic and perhaps more passes when groomed are smoother. Classical tracks look terrific. I skied from 10:30 to noon.

  Arrived this morning to newly groomed trails. Firmness of the skate deck was variable, from moderately firm to soft. On average probably toward the firmer side as the soft spots correspond to areas prone to drifting. Generally my skate marks were in about an inch. I did not ski much of the trail system, only doing repeats on a few sections. Paul was out grooming again as I was almost finished. Classical tracks looked great, and skied fine when I was in them double poling, not super fast though.

  Newly groomed. Skate deck fairly soft but not bad. Classic tracks in great shape. Speed was an issue given the softer conditions but fortunately the snow temperature was not too cold. Lots of snow here, the deepest base in some years. Nice day to be out. Hopefully the trails will set-up overnight.

  First time out since Wednesday and I found 1-2 inches of new powder over recently groomed trails. Skate deck underneath was moderately firm, and chopped-up in a few places that I suspect was from soft conditions the previous days. All-in-all pretty good but slow. Did some double-pole drills in the tracks that were filling in, but once skied-in were not too bad. Snowed the entire time I was skiing, 10:30-12.
