Feb 18 (4M, 1d) by Tom Conklin from Terry Fox
Trails Skied: Stadium, Skate Loop [5km], Glide Wax: -5 to -10, Grip Wax:
SKATE: Much softer today than yesterday especially in the Stadiums. The park is still icy but control is fairly good. The worst area is behind the upper track along Riverside where it is sheer ice.

CLASSIC: Tracks looked solid. Lots of people out.

WEATHER: Get out soon because it looks like it is going to get ugly this week and the base, despite the really solid grooming, is thin.
