  A light freezing mist overnight with 1/2 inch new snow this afternoon. We are going to ski-in the still very nice classic tracks and leave the skate deck as is. Overall conditions are very good.

  Amazing how good the classic tracks were. Did some wax/ski testing after having problems on Birke trail on Saturday. Violet was OK, Skins were better and grip tape was rock solid. Very hilly, the west side is not for the faint of heart especially if you're in the tracks. Tracks were actually better than at Fish Hatchery on Saturday.

  Pretty nice natural snow conditions for both skate and classic. Skating was mostly firm with a little breakthrough climbing. My poles were hitting ice base sometimes but my skis never did. I'd recommend B skis because the litter in places might hide gravel, but I never felt my skis hit anything. Classic track was deep and solid everywhere. A little dirt and grass -and some ice -showed in a few places in the tracks, but mostly it was really nice hard-wax skiing. The snow was not at all transformed - I had decent kick with violet wax at about 30F.

  I did some laps in the central meadow. Skate deck has total snow coverage - it was firm in places and soft in others. Hoping the cold night helped firm it up some more. Classic tracks have some grass showing through. Fwiw, the central meadow had the least amount of snow left after the meltdown and it doesn't hold snow as well as the rest of the trail system.

  Classic skied the 1 mile loop in the North Meadow Thursday night in the moonlight. Just a very few very short places where the classic tracks were down to ice...otherwise very good hardwax skiing. Secondhand reports from the household say the skating is good on the entire trail system with just a few soft places here and there.
