Grooming has been not quite up to past years but it has snowed quite regularly this season. Hopefully they'll get out and makes a few passes.
Conditions were good and fast last night under a full moon, get out and enjoy. Double classic tracks on the squirrel for those inclinced!
Skate skiied a "short" Wolverine on Wendesday -- waited until the moment things were above -10. Not horrible, but still more work; the trails are scratched up and in good shape.
Good day to skate. Karl said wee wee wee all the way home. Klister for Klassic.
There is 3-4 inches of fresh snow on the trails. Bill and dan were out there packing it down this afternoon. Classic was slow but great. Special green kick wax.
Skate skiing over the last week on Wolverine has been more work, but still doable; not been unbearably slow. Unless it's my imagination, the surface has been regularly scratched up by the groomers. Many thanks to whoever takes care of Tsalteshi -- I've skiied all around the Peninsula over the holidays, and no one, but no one, takes care of their trails like they do here.
A little snow makes a BIG difference. Good skiing today, not so crunchy. I classic skied with Toko Blue then White kick wax. I think the Swix waxes would have been just as good of grip but with better glide. Break out the kick waxes!! Saw lots of other elves out skiing as well. Merry Christmas!
The boys were out again today and groomed most of the trails. They have really done a nice job on what used to be an ice rink; it is now fast, corn snow. Plus it's calling for snow on Christmas! Thanks Santa!
Skate skied Woverine Thursday evening. I haven't been on those trails in a week or so -- but they seemed to be on fairly good condition. A little icy, but still enough broken up top layer to get a decent purchase. Groomed earlier today? Very, very, fast with violet wax.
Tried to get out there when it was still cool, Failed. Vacillating between snowy-rain and rainy-snow. On the plus side it is sticking to the base well. Hopefully it will cool and start snowy snowing.
