An inch or so of new snow the past 24 hours. The new snow a nice refresh. Cold weather in place as we dropped down to -17.5 early this morning. No wind and sunshine taking off the edge. Grooming on select classic trails this morning. Very good to excellent ski conditions. Classic skiing has been nice with the colder temps and firm and solid tracks and skating surprisingly fast thanks to a solid firm base. Bit slower today with the fresh snow. A few scattered rough and thin spots but overall the skiing is great!
