  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.

  We started skiing at 3:00. Skate deck had about one inch of new powder and growing over a firm base, icy underneath in spots but no problems setting an edge. Single digits above but still reasonably fast. I wasn't feeling too good so our skiing was limited to the west side of the main trail and the shortcuts. Tracks are buried, but someone skied in a couple of k's. Snowing lightly the whole time out, and on my drive home.

  Skied many of the newly groomed trails this morning. Skate deck has firmed-up and several sections are in best condition of the season so far. Fast skating on the main trails. Deep Woods is ok, but still a little soft. Classical tracks are well-defined. Terrific skiing today, and as I left quite a few skiers out there.

  All trails are good to go. There are some soft portions and some areas where the snow is packed and was pretty fast. As the temp warmed up the snow got faster. Finland and Deep Woods both were pretty well groomed with some very soft areas.
