On Tuesday the classic track is still great and faster now that we’ve had some freezing. The skate lane is a bit bumpy with footprints and dog prints. The snow has firmed up. It hasn’t been groomed since Saturday.
Mendenhall Lake on hold until recent warming trend
returns to a cooler freezing cycle. At present we have
standing water and slush atop 8.0 inches of ice.
Stay off Lake until conditions improve,
11:00AM skated Pioneer road. Hmmmm, type II fun? I enjoyed it. It’s pretty sporty on the final descent back to the car, but otherwise….might be more fun on classic skis. I’d volunteer to groom this Thursday if we could arrange it!
Touched up skate track staring at hill top. Firm and fast! Classic track still great. Sunny at MC
Was able to flatten the skate track and take out almost all the boot and dog marks. Was not able to reset the classic as it was still too cold. I did try it and may be able to return later this afternoon when it warms up. Temps rising out there, fog lifting and sun was starting to come through through the trees at 11.
Will reset both classic and skate
Will start Grooming at about 9 AM
