Left P10 at 11:30, -21C and a light breeze. The parkway tracks were in excellent shape and the grip wax was perfect. Trail 1 was in good shape, with some debris (twigs and leaves on the south classic track. Classic tracks were nice and firm. Quite a few people out considering the cold temperature. Balaclavas recommended! Temperature on return to P10 at 1:30 was -17C.
