  Conditions are about the same as reported yesterday. Some sections of the skate deck are covered with leaves and pine needles; especially bad around the junction of Chuckwagon with the main trail. Other than that, pretty fast skating today.

  Hard, somewhat icy skate deck but generally no problem and rather fast. (I was skating on older skis flexed soft with degraded edges.) Better conditions on the shortcuts and Haugs that had a thin layer of softer corduroy here and there, but everything is skiable at least. Classic tracks are frozen in, but in many places littered with leaves, sticks, and pine needles because of the winds over days past.

  Shortcuts were groomed post the warming and then freezing temperatures and skied nicely, and Paul was going over these again as we skied this afternoon laying down some good corduroy. The other trail sections and loops are ok and can be skied but not as much fun given the hard, somewhat icy skate deck. Paul was waiting for the winds to die down before re-grooming these. Winds of 35 mph resulted in lots of debris on the trails and in the classic tracks.

  The trails survived the rain and meltdown very well. The classic track looked great and according to skier using the track it was good. The skate deck was everything from firm, icy, great, to soft. Paul (groomer) is going out after 3:00 pm tomorrow to freshen up the skate lane before the high school team shows up.

  Trails were re-groomed after yesterday and are in great shape. The Deep Woods and Finland loops are now open. Previously groomed trails sections are firmer but a few softer spots remain. Most everything skated nicely. Classic tracks are well-defined. Jack and Luke Baker reported the skate deck in Deep Woods and Finland soft, not unexpected as this is the first grooming.
