Groomed today for both classic and skate skiing.
Best grooming conditions of the season so far, thank-you mother nature!

Trails Skied: Stadium, Skate Loop, Glide Wax: not sure, Grip Wax:

Good post-work exercise skate ski. No idea when it was last groomed, but it was better than I had expected, perhaps because of the skiff of new snow. I struggled with some slippery spots, but a more experienced skate skier probably wouldn't have even noticed.

Conditions fair to good. Some low areas where grass/dirt showing through but overall good.

Nice mid-day skate ski. It looked like all of the skate trails had had at least one recent grooming pass. The stadium definitely had fresh classic tracks--but perhaps not the rest. Nice and soft--good for a first skate ski.

All Skate groomed today.
Due to not enough of a base (required for grooming) classic in the Park was not done today, however the classic trial is in fairly good shape.
Conditions considered to be good.

Great noon ski on classic skis. Some areas were freshly groomed, others not. Some small areas of the classic tracks (under trees) will be better once we get another 5-10 cms of snow.

Not as windy as Mooney's Bay often is--I was starting to get hot by the end.
