The snow was hard and gritty. But still skiable with hard wax. Both my kids had Start TapeGrip Universal on. It worked quite well but one had his completely stripped off his skis after a few kilometers. The other still had his firmly attached to his ski bottoms.

The inside trails were groomed and tracked. The outer trails had a re-manufactured skating lane but the classic tracks weren't done yet. I personally had a hard time setting an edge on the trails but I was using my +15 year old ski Peltonens and their edges have seen better days. I saw a few skiers skating and they seemed to be doing fine.

Hopefully the handful of small systems forecast for the week will give us at least a couple inches of snow. That would help a lot.

BTW, this will probably be the last day of skiing for my oldest son this year. Tomorrow he is off to Cape May, NJ and 8 weeks of Coast Guard boot camp. Semper Paratus!

Went to the trails late Sunday afternoon. They were showing a few signs of overuse but for the most part were fast and silky smooth. Lots of cars when we first got there and even when we were pulling out at dusk there were 20 or so cars in the lot.
