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!
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.
