  Classic tracks were only found on Summit, and they were hard to find Saturday morning underneath more recent snowfalls. No grooming after about 4 inches of snowfall Sunday morning. Fantastic skate skiing down powder by taking chair and then skiing down Gold or Cedar.

  We found winter! It is at Giants Ridge. We skied the whole Gold trail. It has been many years since I have done that and I had almost forgotten how much I love the Gold Trail. Almost all of it was groomed with fresh corduroy making for excellent skiing. No classic track but that really didn't matter. It was great to be on fresh snow at 18 degrees instead of the ice or slush I have been skiing on at the Marshall Trails.

  After Wednesday's snow, fantastic skating conditions at Giants Ridge. Approx 40km have been machine groomed. I skated summit, Silver, and South Gold- great coverage and smooth skiing. Bronze trail also groomed for skating, but does have a few (three, to be exact!) icy patches from the melt earlier this week and not open in the downhill direction. Classic tracks are currently shallow or non-existent and none were set with latest grooming; plan to skate until the next snowfall arrives.

  Classic Skied Northern Lights, Gold, Wynne Creek and Summit today, Silver Trail last night. Coverage was great last night and awesome after 1" of heavy snow today. Old classic tracks were firm again, after days of meltdown. Swix Violet with Toko yellow yielded great kick in the icy powder. Some water is pooled in limited areas. 40 K's are groomed and open. Skiing is fantastic and should get get better as we cool down to the single digits.
