  Skied 15K yesterday late afternoon and 42K today at the Peak on the man made loops. The snow was a bit uneven in places, hasn't been groomed since Wednesday and is a bit dirty in a few spots. There are even a few bare spots emerging and it's a bit icy on a section of the hill going up. But it was pretty good considering. I used a type of wax that repels dirt and it worked great. I only recommend this type of skiing for persons that have skied for years. Best to do the horseshoe loops -northward, then up the main hill, up though magic carpet, then back, and repeat. I love XC skiing. And especially when temps are in the 30's.

  Great skate conditions at Lapham this morning. An inch or two of loose snow over solid base. Great job by the groomers, if not for their great grooming, I would have been rollerskiing on back roads all winter, so a big shout out to them!!

  1.4k manmade loop was fast but not icy with enough loose snow for edge edging. The limb up to the cutoff was good hill training. Many were training for the Birkie next week as I was with 20 laps (28k). I wish the Birkie will be as fun.

  Manmade snow loops. Much improved after last nights tilling and fine grooming. The manmade snow base has 'densified' and is essentially a block of ice. But, there is a very skiable layer of loose powdery snow on top, and a one new, good set of classic tracks. The many skiers on the trails today have also helped to pulverize the corn snow and create 'lanes' of good skiing. Get out here today, tonight, or tomorrow morning to enjoy the best (and only?) groomed ski trails in the region.

  Manmade snow loops. Fast, but not as much fun. Only token grooming done overnight. Skate deck is refrozen with a thin layer of loose snow. Classic tracks are old and icy. Plenty of base and very clean. Will be very good when a full regrooming is completed. Off the manmade snow loops looked unskiable.
