Rejuvenated skate deck

The skate deck on Pilot Knob Lake was rejuvenated early this morning.  There are some icy parts but it still made for a good skate ski this morning.

Still skiable

I just skied the loop on Pilot Knob Lake again.  The skate deck has 2 or 3 small icy spots but overall it is in good shape.  The classic tracks have some poor spots but overall is in fairly good shape too.

Pilot Knob Lake

I rolled and used the snowmover both Sunday night and Monday night throughout Pilot Knob State park with the new 2 inches of snow we received Sunday evening.  The wind has finally calmed down to allow use of the Ginzu to finish up the grooming on the lake tonight.  I did set classic tracks but there are 2 or 3 icy spots where the snow is thin and the tracks are in poor condition there.  However most of the lake has pretty good tracks and a good skating deck.

Pilot Knob Lake

We're starting over again at Pilot Knob Lake.  The rain we received Wednesday night pretty much destroyed the lake trail.  But I did go over it this morning 8 times with the snow mover and 8 times with the Ginzu.  Most of the lake should now be good for skate skiing with the exception of 2 or 3 icy spots that can either be double poled through or maybe gone around.  Back to B-skis again.

There are no classic tracks.  Maybe if we get a good inch of snow Sunday evening and it doesn't blow away I can build up enough for tracks again.

Still skiing

The loop on Pilot Knob Lake was still holding up fine for a good ski this morning.  Great to see how much it is being used!  One more day of melting today then a snow storm tomorrow.

Great day to ski

It was a great day to get out and ski in the sunshine today!

1.5 km loop on Pilot Knob Lake

Pilot Knob Lake

The lake in Pilot Knob state park has been groomed for both skate and classic style skiing this morning.  It was very cold so the snow should set up well for today.
