  Immaculate grooming at 6:15 this morning as the moon was out and the sun was just beginning to rise. Zero ice, zero slush, zero sugar, and fastest conditions of the week, despite yesterday's 63 degree afternoon high! By 8:15am it was starting to get a bit soft, but still quite enjoyable. Hyland keeps getting better and better -- thanks, groomers!

  Fun morning ski - I was surprised at the morning temp and figured it may be the last chance to ski before the Birkie. The Trail was what you could expect. It was nicely groomed for what there is to work with. You can see the snow is getting dirty. Some areas were nice small grain particle ice - other areas were much more like marbles. But with the hard pack it made for a fast ski.

  Fastest snow of the week. I don't know how it works, but the warmer the afternoon, the faster the morning at Hyland has been this week! Perfect conditions on the 5k loop. The Boulder Ridge descent was in fantastic shape. Any time I can average 2:54 per KM for 20K when the forecast calls for 60 degrees is a good day in my book.
