Results-January 27 (classic)

I didn't hear any news about conditions on Wednesday night, but I'm guessing the word of the day was "wet."  Many thanks to Jeffy for sending me the results, and a big "way to go!" to the Bush kids who came and raced!  Alas, they didn't put down any times, so they're on the "Just Skiing" list for this week.  Keep up the good work!

Results-January 20 (Skate)

Chris reports "interesting conditions with all the tree bombs and branches on the trail," but I told him he's lucky he wasn't there yesterday; with the non-stop pass closures, he'd still be there!  (which would actually be pretty fun)  I was fascinated by the pass reports; the DOT basically just gave up with all the heavy wet snow and closed both Stevens and Snoqualmie Passes for pretty much all day.  Crazy winter we're having; get up there and headlamp ski in it!

We have results! Jan 6 and Jan 13

Many thanks to Ian, who dropped off the sign-up sheet, and to Chris, who picked it up at the end of the night and sent it to me.  At last, we have results!

Jan 13, classic

Chris's report on conditions:
Low turn out last night, which is too bad, because conditions were pretty good.  As usual, great grooming, but with some tree detritus on the trail.  Started snowing hard during my first lap, and I lost my glide during the second lap.  
Not included on the sheets are the Bush School and Momentum groups that were leaving just as we arrived.  
The hat-snatching barred owl is already busy establishing his territory.  He was calling very close to the trail where Berg and Viking fork.

Several people reported mouse sightings also.  Mouse poop is not our friend, so people, remember to pick up all the crumbs!  There is no maid service or garbage service at the cabin, so it's our job to clean up and carry out all the garbage so our little furry friends will stay outside, where the owl will catch them.

First Race of the Year -- Any Results?

I heard the skiing was pretty darn nice last night.  Did anyone pick up the results?  If you did and can send them to me, I'll post them on this blog and you can see how you stacked up.

Reminder -- this Sunday is the Gunnar Hagen, 7.5k and 30k of classic fun at Cabin Creek.  The race was canceled the last two years due to lack of snow, so don't let this one get away!
