Trails Skied: #52 [7km], Glide Wax: universal, Grip Wax: green
Classic conditions on 52 were not as "perfect" as yesterday's ski on Burma but close enough. Grooming appeared to be a couple days old with a hardened base with not as much loose snow for downhill control and uphill climb. I used green wax but it was a bit slippy, suspect blue might have been a better choice. Not complaining though, February is more than making up for the last few weeks of icey skiing...and more snow on the way this weekend!
