  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.

  Sections of the trails were groomed yesterday, and more extensive grooming was in progress this morning when I skied. The newly groomed trails were soft, not too bad though. I refrained from skiing these sections or used the classical tracks until they set up. Saturdays snowfall was about 8 inches so there's plenty of snow with which to work. Combination of sun and higher temperatures (hi 20s) late this morning meant snow was getting somewhat moist. Noticed the decrease in speed over the span of 15 minutes. Good skis can be used. Classical tracks set on some trails.

  Trails were groomed yesterday after the big snowfall. Skate deck is soft packed powder; I had hoped it would have set up overnight. Coverage is excellent. Classic tracks are set, the first time this season I believe. Caveat emptor! This report might be moot as it is snowing now.

  Trails remain soft, albeit maybe a little - a little - faster than yesterday. The hills, especially going up are churned up. Checking speed downhill can be challenging - I crashed once because one ski became a submarine in deep, soft snow. All-in-all still good coverage and in good shape. B-skis still recommended, as I face planted skiing up a small hill after one ski encountered a rock (2nd crash if you're keeping score!). Snowing now.
