The Marshall Nordic team held a morning over distance ski at Korkki today. Korkki was at its finest with temps around 25°f and lake effect snow falling on the trails. The track was nicely skied in and kick was excellent with three layers of from an old tin of Rode Multi Grade blue I found in the Marshall wax trailer. Instead of trying to keep up with the kids I skied lots of small loops from the 4k to the 6k cutoff to try and see each of the team members out skiing and then ended the day by skiing the whole 10k. It was a magic day made even better by a crockpot of homemade chili waiting for us at the parking lot at the end of the workout.

Freshly groomed perfection after a couple inches of new snow. Great conditions. So nice to have the old icy crust buried.

Had a nice ski at Korkki. Tracks in solid shape, though there was a fair amount of debris, mostly leaves/pine needles and a few twigs, so don't use your good skis if you're too worried about that. It was open up to the 6k cutoff with the big hill being closed. Still, definitely worth the drive!

Skied yesterday and today and the trails were very good. Trails were well tracked. Nice amount of snow, no ice. A couple of the more challenging trails were roped off, but main route is open.

Korkki received rain last night and Mark Helmer asked me to report that the trail conditions are poor and will be until more snow falls.

28F. Cloudy to mostly cloudy. Tracks on most tight corners are washed out, but all the trail is very skiable with good skis. I was working on trail prep for Thursday's high school race. Korkki will be closed from 1500 (3pm) Wednesday Jan 13 to Friday Jan 15. No spectators are allowed during Thursday's race. :(

Perfect day at Korkki. How could it not be? Mid 20s, firm, fast tracks. Nice kick and glide with Rex N21. Some corners are a bit washed out but that's just skiing. Please note the trail will be closed Wednesday after 3pm to prepare it for a high-school race on Thursday.

Went out to Korkki to plan out the stadium layout for the high school race on Thursday. Classic tracks looked great and Mark confirmed that the trails were in excellent shape. Korkki will be closed from 3:00pm on Wednesday January 13 until Friday morning Jan 15 to set up the course and run the race on Thursday.

It was 3 degrees when we arrived at 8 a.m. this morning. We skied most of the main trails. They are all in good condition. It's a blue sky with no wind - it should be a beautiful day once it warms up.

Magical day to ring in the New Year at Korkki Nordic. Almost full parking lot at 10:00 but no congestion on the trails. Great grooming with fresh tracks all around after a day of lake effect snow yesterday. Snow was soft and fluffy, some washout on downhill corners but primarily solid deep tracks throughout. No signs of any debris on trails. Thank you Korkki Nordic for a great day of skiing!
