weekend Grooming

Since the last post, Gene groomed last night and Denny groomed for classic this morning so the entire trail system is ready for the weekend.

Clay skiied it at noon and made this observation:
"skating was great at noon -- especially out in the meadows. The sun is strong, but the temperature was nice and cool.

We are now in the time where a good amount of structure (rilling the ski base) is necessary to avoid the suction from the moisture, especially in the new snow. After it fully transforms, the granules are much bigger and the suction and stickiness isn't as big of an issue.

Skiing in the morning is best, but you can use waxless or klister (after the snow transforms) in the warmer hours if you have a lot of structure.
