  We just had our best ski of the year at Pincushion this morning. It was perfection for both the classic tracks and the skate deck! The Pin has some of the best trails in the state for hills and scenery---and plenty of snow! Hats off to the grooming crew for regrooming all the trails so soon after their race day yesterday. Excellent grooming!

  Conditions continue to look great for tomorrows race here at Pincushion. Still very good hard wax skiing here. I used Start RF red (23-30F) and it worked quite well. Should be similar conditions tomorrow, with temps in the low to mid 20's.

  Excellent conditions here on the Pincushion Trails, and should be great for the ski race this Sunday. Grooming is ongoing to get the trails in tiptop shape for the races. We have had over 10" of new snow in the last 4 days, and looking at more snow tonight. Should be fantastic with race day temps predicted to be in the high 20's. We have very good coverage, so don't be shy about bringing your good skis! Online registration is available until 5PM this Friday and registration is available at Pincushion on the morning of the race. Hope to see everyone there!

  3 inches of fresh snow from the prior day had yet to be groomed. Classic skied all the trails, breaking trail and skiing in other skiers tracks. Beautiful sunny day with mid teens temps made for a great ski. Just the right amount of snow to make breaking trail fun and not work.

  It was excellent skiing. The tracks were great. I skied Lower Snowman, Upper Snowman, B&B Loop, West Overlook, and East Overlook. It was not very busy. They built some fun jumps to ski on in the stadium. The sun was out and it was a lot of fun.
