  Trails were ungroomed, but 10x better than not skiing. I did a few loops of the fake snow loop. Looked like several dozen people classic skied before me. It took some agility to stay off the pavement near the donut, and to stay upright over some rough sections. Overall it felt much like the first ski of the season.

  Classic track was firm and fast with just a couple of wobbles near the chalet. Skate deck was also firm. Could've used just a touch more klister on top of the old stuff I had on since the last klister ski. Today and tomorrow morning could be as good as it gets until next winter around here with the upcoming warmth.

  Classic skiied the Valley Trail. The groomers have done a great job of keeping our well used old snow very skiiable (we haven't worn it out yet). The tracks were fast. I have been using waxless skis and they work well on this type of snow. There is only one dirty spot where the base is thin at the top of the donut near the chalet parking. You can easily go around it. With temperatures at 18 degrees with light wind it was perfect morning to be out.

  The snow was variable with a little glide-grab-glide with the little bit of new snow mixed in. It was not groomed after the new snow this morning. It was getting pretty soft and mushy as well and really not much fun skiing around noon. The classic track varied from slow with some new snow to glazed and fast to wet, mushy and slow. It should be better tomorrow morning after they groom and it will be colder tonight. Staff said they were planning on grooming until Sunday March 12th.
