Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  Spirit got 8-10" of air filled fluff early this morning grooming was difficult as there was ice under the snow from previous melts. The snow did pack down to about 2.5" so tracks were set in the campground and on the 3k. Due to high winds last week there's a lot of debris on the trail including a huge popple on the 10k loop. The 10k was rolled to the cutoff coming into the 3k loop. Watch out for ice under the snow ski with caution.

  Still good conditions at noon. As I skied I wasn't cutting deep into the snow. The last 5 minutes on the campground loop I started leaving impressions. So, that meant it was time to be done. The 10k was recently groomed. I can honestly say the skate deck was soft and very slow yet firm. There was still a hard icy layer under the top layer that was acting as a refrigerant keeping the skate deck together. I'm guessing with more sunshine and warm weather the conditions will deteriorate. Skied the 10k, minus the 1.5 k most difficult loops, the 3k and campground loop. The downhills we sticky slow. I would recommend skiing in the morning and late afternoon/early evening.

  Took the connector from Magney. The tracks seemed less glazed at Spirit (compared to Magney), maybe because a bit warmer (11am)? Also we finally put warm enough wax on (55). Watched a bit of the JV/JH race while eating our lunch and rewaxing. That was fun.

  4" of new snow gave us great conditions all trails groomed for classic and skating. Trails should firm up with the coming cold weather.
