  The skate deck was in great shape with good glide, even for an old guy, and was nicely groomed and not icy. It was a great morning for skiing before things heated up. Eight trumpeter swans did a fly by just as I was finishing my last lap for the grand finale.

  All trails were still open last night. Skied only the man-made loop though. It looked like the course saw some heavy traffic during the day, and my 8pm it was very icy and difficult to get a great edge on. Certainly not a function of the grooming, but more the warm daytime temps and then the drop into just below freezing....a pattern that we'll see for a while here. Once groomed it'll probably grind all out and be great again, but it may be difficult night skiing. Have to remind myself that despite the near term and long term weather reports and conditions, it is a blessing to be skiing on the best man-made ribbon of snow in the country. Kudos to the Hyland crew...your skiers appreciate it.

  The man made loop was great, as expect, but I was disappointed that the natural snow trails were not groomed this morning. Fortunately, I did get to ski North, Lake and Hill trails yesterday on some pretty sweet corduroy... Lots of skiers out early this morning getting it before the melt.

  Awesome conditions, great skate deck. Skied the natural trails while we still have snow.
