  Trails were groomed this morning when temps were around 30F -- I'm not sure if they were planning to do the whole park (they were grooming when I was out), but it seemed like it -- they went down to the playground and everything. I saw a tracksetter, too, but they hadn't set any tracks where I skied (classic tracks still looked pretty good overall). The snow is pretty good -- a couple of brownish snow spots (hills, etc.) and some debris (looked blown in, not dug up). Don't do what I did, though, and show up to the party overdressed! It's warm out there!

  The skiing at Lester is pretty good. There are a few dirty spots in both the skate lane and classic tracks from the groomer hitting bottom, but they can easily be stepped over or avoided. The skate lane is already starting to harden up from all the traffic, but it still skied very nice. DXC hosted another Wednesday Night Glide (WNG) on Wednesday from the Lester Amity Chalet with a nice group enjoying some good skiing company and picking up a few technique tips. The trails were super busy with lots of skiers enjoying the beautiful night and warm temps. DXC will continue to host WNGs through Feb. from 5:30p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Wednesdays.

  Lester Park trails are groomed. Trails grooming up well with the new snow. Conditions are very good, classical tracks set.

  First time out this season at Lester Park ski trails. Sunny skies, 12F and classic trails groomed to perfection this morning. Best snow conditions in my 30 years skiing these trails; no ice covered sections! Solid pole plant, nice corduroy in the skating lane. Thanks to the groomer for making this an exceptional ski afternoon!

  Freshly groomed. I didn't ski to the pavilion (started at the first bridge on 7 Bridges Road), so I can't vouch for that bit of trail, but the rest of the system has good coverage throughout. Skate lane still a bit soft.
