Still a better day skiing than sitting at your desk for lunch. Snow was softer than yesterday but still not too mushy. There are puddles starting to form. Would still be a nice after work ski.

Great day & great conditions. Spring/corn like snow on a firm base. Good edge grip for skating. Glide was great too. Conditions should still be great for an after work ski.

The positives are that it is a gorgeous day today & the conditions were perfect for a double poling workout ;-). At lunch the surface was just skateable but by later this aft should soften up enough for better edge grip. The classic tracks were glazed but generally still well formed. I checked in as I left & there may only be a few days left :-(
