  The countdown continues as the trails degrade. Thoughts of skiing are soon due to fade. Trails have turned into mud and slop, less suitable for skis and more for a mop. If you must ski, what is there you must take. The best of of all was on Isaac Lake. (Really, pretty good out there.) (Mud skis??).

  The season's clock is ticking. Cause in the sun we'd be sticking. In the shade it was dicey. Cause the trail was icy. Sections of slush and we'd have to mush. Water and puddles galore, the remains of snow days before. Lots of sticks, innocently up to dirty tricks. Still we pressed on, finding some skiing hither and yon.

  We're back to skiing after the meltdown. A few inches of new snow earlier in the week allowed grooming yesterday. Half-to-one inch (or a little more) over an icy base for the skate deck. No classical tracks. Sections are melting out, some either mostly gone or solid ice. However we were able to get good skiing in, especially where there was well-defined corduroy, and apart from the aforementioned trails were fast and very skiable. Finland is closed - too icy.

  Skied earlier today (10-11) to avoid the Goldilocks problem of yesterday. No such luck. Glazed and icy or wet and soggy with little "just right." Definitely skiable but in places with some effort, at least for me. Temperatures were nearing 32 as I left. Groomed trails as per yesterdays post.

  As we started today's late morning ski, it was sun/shade schizophrenia. Toward the end of the ski the snow was becoming increasingly more wet and slow. Frankly, the skiing today put the "work" in workout! Trails groomed with the exception of the back half of the main trail (behind the ski hill). Classical tracks in some, but not all the groomed trail sections.
