  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.

  Trails, skate deck firmer than yesterday. Somewhat slow at the start of my ski as the snow had not warmed up yet, and I had waxed warmer. Two hour later conditions were faster when the temperature climbed into the 20s and farther into my wax range. Classic tracks in very good shape too. More skiers than usual today.

  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!
