Track Report

It snowed after Doug groomed the course.  The snow hadn't settled when I went out, so it was soft skiing and the track was hard to see (flat light didn't help).  I did see classic tracks set, but I don't know how firm they are.  The soft snow is resting on a layer of ice in many parts, so it's hard to get a bite on your pole tips - they skip out a lot.  Hopefully it will all set up nicely soon.

Meanwhile, it's great to be outside and the soft, slow snow is a good time to practice technique (you sorta end up skiing in slow-motion, so you can focus on form differently than when you're skiing quickly).

Happy Trails.
