Feb 16, Skating

It looks like at least a couple of racers made it up there last night!  Dale reports fine skiing under clear skies and a full moon.  He said the course was groomed Tuesday night, but another couple inches of fresh snow after that made the skiing slow but fun.

Anyone else?

Next week: classic.  This weekend: Stampede!  5k and 15k at Cabin Creek -- you've been training for this one all winter!  Details at


  1. Hey, we missed you up there! The full moon was up, beautiful, and blazing away at a more useful angle for headlamp-less skiing than last month. Chris Fast and I skated at lightning speed around the Berg (not really. Chris was 15:xx and I was 20:xx.) Lots of other people were out, although when we left around 9 the lodge was empty. We wondered about turning out the lights, but it seemed early for that, and when we saw a couple of cars still in the lot we decided against it. Is there a protocol about that?


  2. Hmmm, good question! I think if you don't see any packs in the cabin, go ahead and turn off the lights. I'm glad there was a good turnout -- thanks for the report!
