A cold start to the day with early morning temp at -26!! No wind however and with bright February sunshine and temp warming up to around 0, beautiful conditions on the trails. The trails groomed Sunday are providing the best classic skiing with dry, and relatively clean snow and not so fast. Trails not groomed on Sunday but groomed last Friday or Saturday are glazed over in the exposed areas with fast tracks. Dusting of snow Monday morning took off the edge of some of the speed. Skating conditions are very nice right now, in particular on Skaters Waltz. High winds on Saturday did bring down some leaves and twigs but all in all the trails are in great shape and folks skiing the past few days have reported good to very good skiing. On a personal note, I think the skiing is the best of the year right now!! Grooming on Thursday and on through the weekend should make for some fantastic skiing as we enjoy the longer days and generally mild temps. On a side note, Saturday’s warm temps combined with the nature of the dry and light snow and high winds caused a unique situation in that snow rollers formed on certain areas. Not common to see this phenomenon but if you ski at Maplelag before the next snowfall, look in the skinny field to see the snow rollers!
