Fantastic day at Parkside skiing. Warm temps and new grooming to wipe out the footprints. Foot post are easy enough to ski over. Just agonizing to see the disrespect in the few short hours we actually get to ski there. Of course we approve them to walk to the side of the groomed trail...but then there is just plain brain dead. Chitowns donation ( the biggest) to fund the snowmobile and a super bud willing to use it has made the skiing great.
A few thin spots on the trail and warm temps are all that great at this point.
I’m ready for the Birkie, but in a more kicked back mode this year.

Parkside on our fresh grooming. Well lots of animal tracks and pile of guts next to the trail. Coyotes must be using the trails for their hunting delight. Cold and slow skis. Should be better tomorrow and there is a good classical track. Gonna try that tomorrow too.

Mcmiller trail. Well this was a tough one as about 4 min into skiing on a downhill my ski went outside and I crashed head first into the snow, sunglasses flew off and I broke the top of my ski. Well my neck hurts pretty bad and I’m sure it’s gonna get worse tonight. Bad year so far, I haven’t groomed at Parkside, my conditioning sucks from normal and I broke a pole and a ski this year. Supposed to get some snow tonight and Parkside could be good skiing if we get any kind of snow. Everywhere else up north, Colorado a All have doing fantastic ski conditions.
