Lunchtime skate ski fitness/fresh air session. Skated the stadium, playing fields & orchard. The grooming was great, the snow soft but not "wet". New snow had not yet bonded to the old icy stuff below in some places & could be a nuisance for strong skiers in some areas. Time & more snow should solve that. Conditions should be great for an after work or evening ski tonight.
