Red is our choice for storage waxing as Blue is so hard that it is more difficult to make sure that there is no air between the ski and base and Yellow is so soft that it gets "eaten away" quicker.

Using what was left of the artificial snow made back in December, Bob, Stu and crew created a twisty, hilly, 200-yard loop course on the ski park, which was just long enough to get the skiers out of breath and make shooting the guns an exciting challenge.

LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

SUN, MAR 29

Nubs Nob: Best three day stretch of skating at Nubs this year. Not even close. Perfect temps and impeccable grooming. Great crowd out there this morning. Currently snowing hard. Trail should remain very skiable through Wednesday's warm-up. Cooling off again on Friday. Hoping for one last weekend.

Lakes of the North: Skied from 9:30-11:00. Snow holding well & looks like more on the way this pm. All the north high places should ski well the next few days. Lakes of the North, Gaylord country club was good according to Mike Bourassa. Nubs and Chestnut Valley will be good also. Skate, classic or back country. Watch for ice in Nubbs parking lot. Someone took a bad fall there Saturday afternoon. That's the news from the Snow Nation!

SAT, MAR 28

Unlisted trail: Skied Lakes of the North this morn. Went up and skied Nubs Knob and Chestnut late afternoon. For me, liked the wide open, go anywhere situation at Lakes of the North. Also the snow had that "just right" feel and softness at LOTN. Nubs was groomed but the classic track was icy and hard. Chestnut was better than Nubs for classic as there was enough loose snow on top of the crust to let the ski camber out and kick. Lakes of the North Restaurant is open Sunday at 8:30am which is nice for breakfast. Nubs has food too and saw a car in front of the Chestnut restaurant. So.... take your pick or why not ski one in the morn and the other in the afternoon. Classic no wax worked for me and tomorrow Start green or HF5 should work, waxing with harder syuff to protect ski base. See ya one place or the other!

Lakes of the North: Ernie, Glen, Gabe, Robin, and Hap showed up today- Sat. One of the best crust skate skies we have had in years. Classic would have worked too but we all just skated. Gabe and I were on Swix Hf 4, a harder wax too protect bases. start green would work too. Am going up to Nubs this afternoon for a ski and will post a report comparing conditions. We saw lots of good crust snow in the potato fields south of the fed. fish hatchery. Glad we are up here as opposed to being stuck in spring break traffic!
