Skate was good in most areas. Classic mostly good, some icy spots and thin in the trees in some areas. Overall pretty good.
sorry to see dirt bikes on the trail @ 5:30pm on Saturday. At least they didn’t run me into the Creek.
Skate track very good. Classic track wiped out totally in some places and one track in others.
Little ones and big ones learning and improving xcski skills!
No gunfire before sunrise. Skating lane is soft with a layer of fresh till on top. Classic is hard and was not reset. I worked the classic a bit at the far end and couldn’t produce any improvement. Devo’s asked for ‘coaching pull-outs’ as a courtesy to civilians on the track with them and so they can break off to the side for coaching. I may reset the track late tonight to conserve and harden the surface.
Trail will be groomed early. 4H club will be there around 10am. Beat the rush.
What a difference a day makes. The upper loop is in fantastic condition for both skate and classic. Hike up Trickster – no problem! The snow softened just enough and the Eaglecrest groomers did an amazing job to smooth things out. Skate ski race tomorrow (Sunday) at 10:30 a.m. – everyone is welcome!
