  Recently groomed so we skied on mostly virgin corduroy this afternoon. In general the skate deck is a tad soft and hollow in places, but not too bad. Windy and increasingly so as we finished and thus some drifting, but nowhere was the entire trail covered. Skied Finland and this was softer than the main trail. Mike New informed us that conditions in Deep Woods were similar. Coverage is excellent!

  Skied the shortcuts. Conditions were cold and slow. Paul (groomer) was out grooming the east side. He said he would be back out tomorrow morning to finish grooming and setting track. The trails look great.

  In spite of the cold and wind the trails were very good. Skate lane was faster then yesterday. Starting to snow as I left.

  Trails were groomed and being groomed again this afternoon, the latter for setting the classical tracks. We found it pretty slow going for skating given that it was just barely above 0F, more so for me as I just haven't had it the last two times out. A few short stretches were a bit faster. Overall the skate deck was firm with about an inch of new, cold, and dry snow making the corduroy. Classical tracks appeared pretty good from what I observed.

  Cold and slow. The skate lane was freshly groomed since the wind and snow yesterday. Fantastic skate deck. Classic track is old but good in most areas, drifting and grooming have covered track in a few open areas.
