Snow! Snow! Snow! It was snowing furiously all day (and still is snowing as I type this). Conditions were beautiful, silky and slow! The downhills were so snowy that we did Burma in both directions. Classic was (to my mind) the way to go, but there were many skaters out, working quite hard in the deep, ungroomed snow. The 8 cm is a guess, it's possible the snow snow was deeper than that.
