  Skate deck in places has up to 1-2 inches of new snow - possibly mixed with hoar frost - over firm corduroy. In other places corduroy is showing. Skiing today seemed bimodal. Some stretches skied reasonably, but not super fast and in others slow. We thought the hoar frost gave the speed. Classical tracks look good where exposed. Back to good skis as the new snow has covered a lot of the debris, but there remain a few dirty spots.

  2" to 4" of new snow. All the trails were groomed by 2:30. Track was still a little soft. Everything looked great. Should set up great for skate or classic.

  Once again, trail conditions remain essentially the same as reported over the last several days. The bottom-line is that skating is still good, classical tracks are well-defined and reasonable deep, but more leaves and sticks are being deposited and/or appearing on the trails.

  Skate deck is hard with some corduroy, and pretty good in most places. The deck is somewhat icier in a few of the open places where yesterday's sun was able to minimally melt the snow. Classical tracks still in really good shape.

  Arriving about 2:30 trails were being groomed post yesterday's race. Initially I was skating on a very hard packed deck and had some difficulty setting an edge. I then decided to just double pole in the tracks that, apart from the occasional leaf or twig, were in very good shape. Finished-up with minimal skating on newly groomed sections that skied much better. Should be fine for tomorrow.
