Things warmed up into the mid-thirties by the time Sunday's Krazy Klassic started. Quadruple tracks (two out, two in) were set from the club house / start line / lap out to the loop in the woods, and triple tracks were set through the woods.

Soelden 15 is a test wax (a non fluorinated top coat) that did extremely well in testing two weeks ago so I contacted our chemist and he flew some out to me for the races.

LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

TUE, DEC 6

Hanson Hills: Grayling Received 2 inches of snow overnight making for a beautiful white backdrop. We will not be running grooming equipment as snow is looking to be temporary with temperatures expected to be in the mid/high 30s today.

Season Passes are on Sale, you may purchase online at: https://runsignup.com/Race/MI/Grayling/HansonHillsSeasonPasses

SUN, DEC 4

Lakes of the North: About two inches on the course, there were some skate and classic tracks around, so someone had been out there. Some blowing snow, but coverage was good on the greenways and even in the thicker grass. Needs a few more inches to make much of a trail yet.

Interlochen Golf Course: Great sunny ski at IGC after Paula texted me they were there & had good glide. I had planned to hike with a group but prefer XC skiing this time of year. There wasn’t much snow but frozen grass underneath, so hoping for more soon. Let it snow!

Bay Meadows GC: Beautiful sunny day, tried to talk Karen into skiing with our Evo's. She didn't think conditions would be very good even though I told her yesterday was great. She relented and was surprised how good it was. With the no wax classic Evo's we could ski everywhere without hitting any grass or dirt. Again, just the right combination of snow and cold temps with frozen ground. Cliff was there again skating and he liked it better than even yesterday.
