Skiablish...not groomed for 6 days, waiting for colder temps and more snow.

City skiing! Surprisingly good coverage at Mooney's Bay (no rocks or grass on groomed track, hill not accessible yet). Old grooming (Friday), and some walkers enjoyed the ski trails, but the skate track was still in decent shape.

First time ever at Terry Fox... Trails were freshly groomed at 1pm today. I found the loop trails were harder packed than the stadium. I was the 2nd skate skier out by the looks of the tracks. Only 2 others on Classic trail while I was there and it looked pretty decent as well, cause those 2 were flying!

Only small sections of asphalt (poles hitting only), on bike paths. Along the beach was perfect!

Overall, quite impressed as staff told me the groomer only did one pass as it was getting too soft by mid-day.
