Feb 17 (4M, 2d) by Tom Conklin from Terry Fox
Trails Skied: Stadium, Skate Loop [5km], Glide Wax: -5 to -10, Grip Wax:
SKATE: Very hard, very fast conditions with a fair number of icy spots. Having said that, it is a wonderful how well the Mooney's Bay groomers have been able to reclaim the tracks considering the horrible weather we've had. The Stadium loops are in really good condition with a good topping of granular snow. The park is a lot more icy but still very easily navigated.

CLASSIC: The classic tracks are solid, deep in most places and were pretty fast the two or three times I tried them.

TRAFFIC: Very few people there.
