It was wet, it was wild, and it was just an event. It was epic. It was a little slow out there. There was three inches of standing water in a lot of places. It kind of slowed down the race but we finished. It was good. It was amazing we held it.

It has been cold lately where I have been, so I have been testing cold waxes. The performance of Base Performance Liquid Paraffin has totally surprised me to the point where it is now my new favorite glide wax.

LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

TUE, OCT 27

Noquemanon Trail-Forestville: Had to check out Forestville after Blueberry to compare conditions. Noque to 17k, Animoosh, and Mukwa was rolled and groomed last night. Not as soft and bumpy as Blueberry, but there is an incredible amount of oak leaves covering the trail and that continue to fall down. Skiing was very slow going at times. Noque Pines section was in the best condition. I would suggest going to Blueberry over Forestville for the time being.

Blueberry Ridge: 10 freaking degrees this morning at Blueberry. Just brutal. Sten rolled and groomed up Wolverine and Lighted Loop. Much better skiing than yesterday as the snow has set up. Still bumpy and soft, but no bare spots!
