The heavy snow is still working its way out of the tree canopy bringing assorted debris with it. Easy enough to avoid. The snow coverage is deep and the base has some cushion as the leveling process is ongoing. Tracks were intact throughout. Most trails recently groomed. Beautiful scenery and the cold powder provided good glide.

It was a nice day to use the classic technique! The tracks were set well, and the snow was firm so that few (if any) pole plants sunk deep into the snow. I skied around the whole area a couple times. In a lot of places, the snow really hasn't come off the trees since the storm in mid-December. It's a beautiful, wintry landscape!

Skated Lake Loop. Trail was in real nice condition. Low snow temp (air temp around 0 F) made for poor glide. Returned and grabbed classic skis for a run around Thunder and East loops, which was a bit more tolerable in these cold snow conditions.
