Afternoon
Firsthand: Classic 
[ Good skis ]
The snow quality and coverage are incredibly nice, especially for early season skiing. Jay has set a classic track on Sukkerbusk and JibFly trails. I skied an hour in the late afternoon, exploring both trails, and they are in good shape. Skater's Waltz is groomed and waiting for skaters. Temps in the low 20's, great coverage with no exposed patches. Bring your good skis. It's Maplelag... just ski!

We skied Skaters Waltz in the afternoon and it was in great shape! This was our first time at Maplelag and we really enjoyed it.

Evening
Firsthand: Classic Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, B skis ]
A really nice opening weekend of early season skiing. Great seeing so many people out. Today was about as good as it gets for November skiing. The first skiers were greeted with a light silky dusting on top of Saturday's grooming. I got out on the groomed classic trails at dusk and was fantastic. No ice dirt or thin areas. The usual early season bumpiness but overall lovely skiing and I had no problem using good skis. Early evening went out grooming and cleaned up the start area than packed and set one track on Sap Run. A few more rough spots and would use rock skis on this trail but the thin areas are easily avoidable by stepping out of the track and skiing where combed. Tomorrow we plan to pack additional trail to the west and north. Probably not enough snow to set track on the new trails being groomed but open for no track classic skiing. Skaters please skate on the skate only trails Skaters Waltz. By midweek we hope to have the extensions of Skaters Waltz and North Loop open for additional skate trail.

Afternoon
Grooming 
[ Trails: Closed, Rock skis ]
Another couple of inches overnight on top of past weekend's snow was enough for the first grooming of the year on 10km of trail. Pressing the snow into the deck to set the base for the next snowfall. A few more inches of snow and subsequent grooming before we can open for early season skiing.
