  Nicely groomed trails for the biathlon race this morning. Fast, but safe skiing. 2.5 k loop.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Combed the skate lanes with the Alpine snowmobile and Tidd Tech groomer but did not set a track because the base is pretty hard. I tried to preserve old classic tracks, where possible, by not grooming over them. The skate conditions should be excellent because of the really firm base, and classic should be okay, too. There are about two bare patches on the whole system and one gully where water ran across the trail during the February thaw. All are easy to avoid or ski around, so you can use good skis.

  Another inch of snow last night added to an already great ski surface. Soft white snow covered icy base. Other trails should be good. Don't wait for grooming. Can go anywhere on frozen lakes, and through the woods off-trails. More snow predicted.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, B skis ]
  Snow is falling this evening to add a layer of soft snow before conditions become icy with the upcoming freeze. Skied the trails to assess conditions, and there is still 6 to 9"+ base on most of the trails, but there are a couple nearly bare spots I encountered. It should be easy to ski around those. After things firm up, we'll evaluate for possible grooming later this week, but with the light accumulation of snow, it might be okay without grooming.
