Glorious ski conditions today with a pinch yourself type of season so far. We did receive some snow last night during our grooming routes so the freshest grooming will be close to trailheads. Be sure to look at the time stamps on individual trails to see when the most recent trails were groomed. Enjoy!

A couple inches of new snow! It's +10 F out there this morning!
Expect a high around 20 degrees.
Glide - Toko Blue or Swix 5 should work. You could also try one of the liquid waxes that apply without aerosol, like Vauhti Green or Blue .
Grip -- Try something like Vauhti Blue, Toko Blue, or Swix Blue Extra. Or you could use fish scale bases or newer skin skis and skip the grip wax altogether. Tip: in unconsolidated new snow, wax a couple inches longer than normal in the front and back to help with grip; the fluffy new snow tends to shear, and a longer wax pocket will resist that.
Dress warm and have fun out there!
