The nordic ski team kids will be training at the Mendenhall Campground this Saturday, 12/13 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Watch for many enthusiastic young skiers speeding round and round the track!
Groomer got so fired up at all the folks at the Dzantik’i Heeni potluck he made his way to the campground for some night maneuvers. Selecting a ‘coast guard cut’, the results were pretty good. For once: Lucky you if you can’t sleep and go skating tonight or get up early before the lands and the grooves are disturbed. Should be sweet.
Better than you’d think. Get it while you can. Boots on the ground say the skating is still quite good. Sedgesprite got it before grooming, good, and ARoma got it after grooming- very good.
Scott just called in from the campground and reports the track froze last night so no snow was lost. He is grooming it out right now and says it should be good skate skiing. Watch for bare spots over the speed bumps. I don’t think he’ll be able to do anything with the classic track.
Light Ginzu, left classic tracks alone, as they looked fine. Wet, skate lane seemed soft but skiable. Don and Chris Thomas were leaving to ski it as I finished grooming. To soft to bike, and dog walkers will hammer it, also.
CG groomed this morning by Steve G. Soft and wet with some icy places. It is not going to hold up with 40 degree weather. Speed bumps starting to show.
I skied Montana after Don groomed yesterday and it was springlike and nice for my no wax (Klister fine too)… thanks… like he says, if you see the rocks, send ’em into that babbling creek! Thanks to all the groomers for their early season dedication.
