  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.

  We finished up as the high, junior high school races were to begin. Conditions were mostly good for skating. New grooming was limited to classical tracks over the race course(s). Hoar frost down on the trail improved some sections that were getting hard and icy. Classical tracks were very good where we double-poled, if a tad slow. B skis, but better could probably be used depending on where you go.

  Again, not much new to report from yesterday's posting. This morning's mist might have created a bit of a crust, but not hard. Some harder and icy sections, but skiable. Plenty of km that skied nicely, and fast. Grooming in progress as we left (about 3 pm).

  Classical tracks were groomed again in certain trail sections and a second set was also put in. New corduroy shouldering the classical tracks improved the skate deck as well. I didn't ski much of the trails system today as I was doing repeats. Recommending B-skis only too err on the side of caution since there are several stretches covered with debris. Heads-up for Tuesday, supposed to be a high school race,.

  When I left this afternoon Paul (groomer) was out setting new classic track that looked very good.
