I was on my way back home from skiing Blueberry Hills and decided to check out how Blackwater was doing this year. I ended up skiing the whole system. The grooming looked pretty fresh, and the skate deck was nice and firm. The classic track looked great!

Skate skied under nearly full moon, which allowed travel around all loops, including the unlit portions of Black Forest Cake and Zeke's Return. -5 F temperature on an inch or so of mostly untrammeled snow made for slow going and plenty of V1 technique practice. Maybe my universal liquid glide wax is not the best for these conditions. It made for an excellent workout, though. Warming hut was nice for putting on boots on this night!

Freshly tracked, overall great condition. Some areas drifted over, tracked by wildlife, and a few branches and oak leaves from yesterday's wind. One interesting thing— I think it was on the Leaf Loop, there was a scene of carnage where a coyote or two were apparently feasting on venison right on the trail.
